Editors' Review

We have to admit we were skeptical. We've messed around in Photoshop before and had no idea what we were doing. Portrait Professional promised to be easy, but how easy could it be? Surely it would require some kind of photo-editing skills, right? Wrong.

We are not exaggerating when we say that anyone could use this program. It doesn't really get any easier than this. Open a photo, and the program guides you though the process of adjusting a series of outlines over the subject's facial features. Even this doesn't have to be exact. Once you've done this, the program works its magic, and you're done. For users who want to do a little more fine-tuning, there are separate controls for adjusting facial dimensions and skin characteristics. The main drawback to this program is that users run the risk of making photos look a little too good, which is to say, unrealistic. Portrait subjects will end up with magazine-perfect complexions, which may not be what you're going for. Users will also need to be careful about adjusting things like mouth shape and jaw line; the results may be more attractive than the original, but may end up looking nothing like the subject. Still, this program provides an incredibly easy and efficient way to edit portraits, and overall we were quite impressed with the results. The built-in Help guide is not particularly detailed, but it's adequate.

Portrait Professional is free to try, but the trial version leaves a watermark on images. The program installs desktop icons without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.

"Get additional 15% off"

 |  Version: Portrait Professional 10.6.1

Pros

Great price ... Use this code to get an addtl 15% off
OLNY-ZYJK-GXME-QXZL

Cons

If unhappy with saved result, unless saved a fullsize project file, the whole work process incl. marking eyes, mouth, nose etc. will have to be redone. Therefore, the program is best used as plug-in w Photoshop working on image copy in layer to then take advantage of blending modes for layers.

"Useful program that's easy to use and fun for everyone"

February 15, 2012  |  By lralperstein

 |  Version: Portrait Professional 10.6.1

Pros

1. Astonishingly easy to use
2. Useful for professionals and fun for amateurs
3. A program with appeal to everyone's ego to remove wrinkles, imperfections and blemishes
4. Sure to make a hit with your friends to produce flattering portraits
5. Astonishingly inexpensive

Cons

I can think of cons whatsoever with this wonderful program

Summary

As a relative amateur in photo editing, this program is a joy to use with immediate results that are sure to please everyone. Nobody wants to have portraits with a transient pimple always in the most noticeable location. Well, this program performs miracles. While you can delve deeply into this program to make images significantly more flattering, one has to apply the brakes to curb a desire for perfection leaving the decision in your hands.

"Superb software, great for retouching headshots"

December 30, 2011  |  By marklaing

 |  Version: Portrait Professional 10.6.1

Pros

Fast, accurate, works as it promises.

Cons

not QUITE sure about the way it changes face and eye shape but this is adjustable - other than that it's a great buy. I downloaded the free version and almost immediately bought the pro version after I saw the results. Excellent software!!

Summary

Semi professional photographer, I used it on a client and it worked very well. Saves hours of messing around in Photoshop.
