Editors' review

Those glossy, glamorous portraits you see everywhere have been heavily digitally retouched. ArcSoft's Perfect365 is a free photo-editing application that is optimized for retouching, airbrushing, and enhancing portraits and other facial shots, but it also works on group portraits or any digital snapshot, for that matter. What it does best is make it easy to achieve the look you see on magazine covers and Web sites in your own photos. With it, you can give digital makeovers to yourself and your friends.

Perfect365 opens with a splash screen demonstrating before-and-after images with a series of stock photos; we could also open any of our own images, go to Favorites, load the last photo we'd worked on, and even access Twitter and Facebook. We opened one of the sample images, a high-resolution portrait. Perfect365's main view displayed the photo in the center, with a scrolling Instant Look panel on the left that let us quickly apply a wide range of looks suitable for day, evening, night, and other options. On the right, a series of check boxes let us select a wide range of corrections and processes to apply, grouped under Skin, Face, Eyes, and Mouth -- everything from whitening teeth to shaping eyebrows and adding foundation. Most tools, such as the Eye Liner and Blush tools, have options and settings that pop up when you select them; others apply themselves automatically. Perfect365 has some interesting extras, too, such as automatic Instant Multi-Face Detection, which can distinguish up to 20 faces in a group image, even if some are obscured.

Perfect365 is based on ArcSoft's image-editing tools, so it offers many standard features like zoom and undo as well as specialized tools such as the Adjust Key Points tool or the button for switching rapidly between Before and After views. When we created a look we liked, we could save it or share it on Twitter, Facebook, or Flickr after we'd entered our account information via a simple pop-up wizard. Perfect365 is easy to use, totally free, and lots of fun.

    "Quick & Easy!"

    March 24, 2012   |   By tenderfoot77

    Version: ArcSoft Perfect365 1.0.0.51

    Pros

    I like it 'cause it's quick to open and easy to make changes to faces, like on the fly make-up without needing complex tools for adjustments. Less is more in this case.

    Cons

    I haven't had any problems with it yet.

    Summary

    If you're looking for the fastest way to enhance facial features, then this app is the one. And it's FREE!

    "Much better than expected."

    January 30, 2012   |   By hypernipper

    Version: ArcSoft Perfect365 1.0.0.51

    Pros

    Offers many workable samples
    Large number of facial features to enhance

    Cons

    Takes a lot of practice to get the many options the way you want, changes very subtle

    Summary

    This is the first such software I've tried so it would be presumptious of me to be overly critical without comparing to other similar software but the newbie who is looking for quality outcomes is best served by investing a great deal of practice with each of the many options. In my opinion, a quality product. Does more than I'd hoped.

    I'm amazed this is a free program that does such an excellent job.

    If you need to retouch portrait shops...GET IT...USE IT

    "A fun program that lets you add makeup and smooth skin."

    January 26, 2012   |   By nieljean

    Version: ArcSoft Perfect365 1.0.0.51

    Pros

    Many choices of styles and easy to use. I am going to upgrade to the full version. My friends think I take such good pictures of them. The skin smoothing and ability to raise facial cheeks can enhance the photo nicely and make everyone look their best. I like working on the photo with the old and new next to each other to see which looks better. So easy to use too.

    Cons

    Would like a better saveas option. I want to just add to the original file name but that name is not the name the program displays.

    Summary

    If you have a lot of photos that include people this is a great program to enhance their appearance. With so many options it is fun to try many of the pre-programmed looks.
