    "SO FAST!! and gives remarkable results within minutes!"

    February 28, 2014  |   By iwantupgrades

    Version: Portrait Professional 11.3.4

    Pros

    I save hours touching up photos in Photoshop CS6 with trial and error versions.. I can see the changes and every step and have ultimate control.

    Cons

    Upgrades are about 1/2 the price but at least not too close together so it's not terribly expensive to Upgrade.

    Summary

    I will continue to use this as my favorite Portrait software for a very long time.

    "Good product, even got a free upgrade"

    December 10, 2013  |   By jfordorl

    Version: Portrait Professional 11.3.4

    Pros

    Works very well in a heartbeat. I even recieved an instant upgrade from version 11 to version 12 without asking. Recieved e-mail with confirmation and serial number in minutes of placing the order. It adjusted the first photo I put in it in about 8 seconds. It was so intuitive (if you are familiar with Photoshop or Lightroom, etc) that I made additional adjustments without even refering to the PDF manual which you should download after purchase, or downloading the trail version.

    Cons

    Support is spotty as mentioned many times in other posts. It may overdo things just a bit, but you can change the saved settings to what you prefer for all future automatic adjustments it does. See my Summary about the problem I seemed to have when ordering. It was my fault, not theirs.

    Summary

    Unlike some, I even recieved an e-mail with confirmation and serial number in minutes of placing the order. Oh, and since I live in the US and was ordering from England, I had to notify my bank card to allow a one-time purchase with details before the World-Pay System would approve my order. Duh, dumb me.

    "Pathetic support"

    September 6, 2013  |   By Upset1010

    Version: Portrait Professional 10.5.1

    Pros

    If you can get it working its good software.

    Cons

    Bought the software, had it installed until my system crashed. Oped a support ticket as you can't re-install the software. After a week nothing!! A 2nd support ticket, and another week, and still nothing, opening a 3rd and will be calling the company, seems they don't care about customer support after they get your money, they just send you new links to buy the same thing again.

    Summary

    do not buy if your computer crashes or you need to install you need to buy again and again, waste of money!!

    "This is a wonderful photo editing program."

    December 2, 2012  |   By suebydo

    Version: Portrait Professional 11.1.2

    Pros

    Number one, it does a fantastic job of changing a photo just a tiny bit or going all out making someone's appearance just exactly like you want it. It is very easy to use and takes little time and effort. It was intuitive to me to figure out with hardly any need for formal instruction and is just plain fun to use.

    Cons

    I have not had any reason to complain about a thing.

    Summary

    This program really rocks! I would recommend it to anyone because of it's ease and wonderful results. I have had no problem with bazaar looking results as I read in one review and think possibly the points that you adjust at the very beginning of editing may not have been put exactly where they belong. My photos are never distorted, just fresher and clean. It is also fun to just play around with the many options that are available. I really do love this photo editing program. Thanks Portrait Professional!

    "Impressive (but slightly bizarre) results"

    October 31, 2012  |   By amberbrooke21

    Version: Portrait Professional 10.9.8

    Pros

    This software is EASY to use. It makes skin appear flawless and photos magazine ready. It's an excellent value for the cost.

    Cons

    I processed a photo of myself that my husband took, and the result was bizarre. The person in the photo looked like a really, really good impersonation of me, but it definitely wasn't me. (Perhaps it was my alien impersonator?) The eyes were defined and striking, but set oddly farther apart than in actuality. I processed portraits of three other women, and it did the same thing to two of them. If the eyes weren't set so far apart so often, I would have definitely given it five stars.

    "Want a woman to love you -- get this software!!"

    July 21, 2012  |   By gordonrd

    Version: Portrait Professional 10.9.5

    Pros

    Incredibly easy to use for the power it has. It turns a woman's portrait shot into a magazine cover quality shot with very little effort, but for those that need them, there are lots of specific tweaks you can do beyond the basic effect. Good for men's shots, too. Available for both PC and Mac and works the same on each. I use it on an HP Win 7 64-bit desktop and on a MacBook Air. I have been using since version 8 (now on v10) and would not be without it.

    Cons

    Some have complained about support. I can't comment since I have never needed any with this software. I have no complaints. Works better than I expected.

    Summary

    An easy to use tool for turning portrait shots into magazine quality photos with amazing effectiveness. Available for both Mac and PC and works the same on each system. Incredible value.

    "Sweet and Sour"

    June 4, 2012  |   By M_Citizen

    Version: Portrait Professional 10.9.4

    Pros

    Works very well and couldn't be easier to use.

    Cons

    The support is amongst the worst I have experienced. I expected to have automatic upgrades from 10.8 to 10.9 in accordance with the license. My support ticket received one response - "not able to upgrade"!!!! No further correspondence from them. Don't hold your breath for the so called free upgrade to Version 11 when it comes out.

    Summary

    Good product with almost no support. I cannot believe it.

    Version: Portrait Professional 10.5.1

    Pros

    easy to use
    simple to start and automatic results are pretty good

    Cons

    just need to shop around for price. I found a website that had a code for a discount instead of purchashing at full cost direct from their website
