Portrait Professional requires no artistic skill. All you have to do is identify some points on the photo - such as the corners of the eyes, and the edges of the lips - and the software then calculates how to make your subject look their absolute best. The software has been trained in all aspects of beauty. It allows you to choose how much to enhance the lighting, the skin texture and even how many wrinkles to remove. It even allows you subtly re-sculpt the face to make your subject look as good as possible. Portrait Professional enhances people in the same way that good lighting and perfect makeup is used to make someone look more attractive. The software lets anyone look as good as a celebrity in a magazine.
