Portrait Professional v11 Launched
* Portrait Professional is the only portrait software actually trained in human beauty. This makes it both faster, and much easier to use than ordinary photo editing software for faces. This is because the software has analyzed thousands of photos to learn what makes people look attractive or unattractive. With this knowledge, it knows how to improve any aspect of the face. For example, if the face has a double chin, Portrait Professional’s ‘jaw slider’ will recognize that, and automatically reduce it.
* The results are fully customizable via a simple slider interface, and an intelligent touch up brush, so that users can get exactly what they want. There are over 200 sliders giving the user total control of all aspects of the face, eyes, teeth, mouth and hair.
* Uniquely, Portrait Professional 11 keeps learning. The software is constantly receiving more training, so it is continually getting better at enhancing faces. And, as version 11 buyers will get free and frequent upgrades, their software will just get better over time.
* The software incorporates a new generation intelligent touch up brush. Instead of just selecting everything under the brush, the brush actively looks for defects within its radius, and only removes the defect, leaving good skin untouched. This both gives better results, and makes the brush very fast and easy to use, as accuracy is not required.
* The software also contains a unique automatic skin regeneration capability. Conventional skin touch up software simply filters the skin. This works OK for small defects, but fails with bigger problems. This is because when a large defect is removed what remains is featureless skin with no texture. Our solution is to automatically 'graft in' real skin texture where the defects used to be, and this is precisely what our (patent applied for) 'ClearSkin 3®' software does. And, depending on the age and skin type of the subject, the user can even choose different skin textures to fine-tune the result.
With Portrait Professional 11, untrained, non-specialist users can quickly and easily:
* Automatically find the faces in a photograph and automatically enhance all the features of the face using preset effects or sliders.
* Automatically eliminate skin blemishes such as spots or pimples leaving completely natural- looking skin, however big the blemish.
* Remove grease, sweat or unsightly white highlights and shine from the skin.
* Reduce or remove wrinkles and lines, again, leaving exceptionally natural-looking skin.
* Subtly re-shape different aspects of the face to make it slimmer and more attractive.
* Adjust the lighting on the face to make it more flattering or remove shadows.
* Brighten or change eye color, and enhance whiteness of the eyes.
* Whiten the teeth.
* Recolor and re-shape the lips.
* Color, thicken and smooth hair.
