Product Description

Portrait Pro is a software application for Windows and Mac that lets anyone easily enhance photos of people.

Portrait Pro has been shown hundreds of photographs of beautiful human faces, and using sophisticated statistical techniques, it has learnt how to subtly airbrush and touch-up photographs to make them more beautiful.

This means that Portrait Pro will automatically make hundreds of improvements to your portraits. All you have to do is choose how subtle or dramatic to make each change.

Portrait Pro touches up and enhances people in the same way that good lighting and perfect makeup is used to make someone look more attractive. The software really can make anyone look as good as a celebrity in a magazine.

However, Portrait Pro will not simply make a person look like someone different. The software has advanced techniques to make the result look completely natural.

Why not use Photoshop as your portrait touch-up software? It is true that most of these improvements can be made using traditional photo editing software such as Photoshop. However, it would take a skilled touch-up artist many hours to perform the tricky manual airbrush and touch-up operations that would be necessary.

Portrait Pro allows unskilled users to get sophisticated fully professional touch-up in minutes. For the first time portrait photo software for all!

Even experienced Photoshop users are impressed at the speed with which they can get a totally natural looking airbrushed touch-up, just by moving sliders.

System requirements: Windows 8.1, 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP; Mac with OSX 10.6 or later.

I've been using photoshop, lightroom and other image editors for years now. I've paid for the 400-dollar plugins and for the 20-dollar plugins. My experience has been that outside of the bigger-name ones (Nik/Google and OnOne for plugins or Adobe/Apply for editing software), plugins can be pretty iffy. Seeing software like this that cleans up skin AND reshapes faces, from a company I've never heard of, I was very skeptical (especially considering the price).

Plugins like Portraiture or OnOne's "Perfect Portrait" do a great job with retouching skin, but neither lets you morph faces (and both cost quite a bit more than this!). I own both of those.

I actually tried the demo of this.. not for the reshaping, but for the "light positioning" feature they added in v12.. but I ended up loving both.

When you open a photo, it maps the face.. the outline of the face, the eyes, mouth, nose, hair.. it does this all automatically (or you can do it if it doesnt recognize a face) and works surprisingly well. It then asks for the type of person in the photo: Woman/Man/Boy/Girl and gives you a set of presets.
I like the presets, but you'll probably want to tweak them or create your own. Some presets will do everything (shape the face a bit, smooth the skin) but there are also specific "addons" you can click on.. maybe you like everything but want to change the mouth to a bit more of a smile.. or change the eye color.. or add some cheekbone effect. I like that these work as "addons" on top of any edits you do, opposed to resetting the image and applying only that effect.

I was most surprised with the amount of options it gives though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Product July 17, 2014
I'm writing this review at a time when I'm beyond frustrated. I use Portrait Professional as a plug-in with PhotoshopCC. Every time my computer updates, the next time I try and access my Portrait Professional plug-in, it asks for my activation token. When I enter my activation token, I get the message that it's already been used. Therefore, I'm out of luck until customer service re-activates my token. This makes Portrait Pro nearly unusable, especially since there isn't a phone number for customer service and I usually have to wait over 24 hours for reactivation. I love the product but it's worthless if it's unusable.

I originally gave this one star due to the above problems. However, customer service contacted me within 24 hours and had a work-around for me that is painless. I do love the results I get with Portrait Professional. I use it as a plug-in with Photoshop, which is seamless.

5.0 out of 5 stars i will paste feedback i sent to the manufacturer>>> April 10, 2014
just tried your new version 12, and truthfully i am astounded...i did not think you could improve version 10 to anything but a light finishing touch added at the end...version 12 is something i can use before photoshop and get very realistic and exceptional time saving improvements...i must congratulate you and would be happy to go over my feedback...i had been a very harsh critic of the limited value of your software to just a finishing touch...now it is really heavy hitting and i can't thank you enough!!!

I was recommended PortraitPro12 by another pro photographer and downloaded it directly from http://www.portraitprofessional.com/ As there was only one option on the "buy" page, I assumed that there was just one version of the software and also that I was buying a plugin. This is not the case and the version I purchased only works with j.peg files and does not support RAW. I emailed Anthropics via the website contact page, asking if they made a plugin version but received no response. The following day I read the Amazon reviews and confirmed that the Studio version is a plugin and sent a further email asking for the cost to upgrade. Again no response. I tried phoning the company but there is no option to speak with a representative and callers are directed to the website. I left a message explaining that my requests for contact have been ignored. Again, no response.

I have been using the software for a month and am reasonably impressed with the functionality and ease of use, BUT, the program crashes after each image and I have to relaunch it. This is very frustrating when I have a number of images to edit. I've emailed Anthropics about the issue but if they can't be bothered to respond to my requests to spend more money with them I can't imagine they will be interested in resolving an issue.

In summary -

Reasonably low cost
Simple to use
Impressive results

Not a plugin
Software not robust
Non-existent customer service
Presets a little aggressive for my liking

If Anthropics contact me and resolve these issue I will review my star rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars So simple June 1, 2014
Verified Purchase
Even a child can use it.. some say its cheating but there are some very useful tools that are a necessity when editing photograph and frankly i don't care what other people say.. this is a wonderful program and the price is so affordable .. Portrait Pro even has a Facebook page so its not like you cant find a helping hand when you need it.. Play with it get a feel for what this amazing little program can do i promise you will not be disappointed.. Though i would buy the disk , don't just download it.. I like having mine on hand just in case.. Have fun :) Signed Me Mrs T Bliss
