Portrait Professional improves portraits by making slight adjustments to different areas of the face. It can automatically detect and adjust faces in your photos, and you can tweak its adjustments to get just the look you want.


Automation: Portrait Professional does most of the work for you most of the time. If you want to automate the touch-up process, you can just add photos and let this app do the job. Of course, if you're not happy with the way the program alters your photos, you can make as many adjustments as you'd like using sliders for things like skin lighting, eyes, skin smoothing, and more. You can also set your own preferred values and then save them to apply them to multiple photos.

Facebook posting: Facebook posting is built into this software. And when you post your photos, you can decide whether you want to show both the before and after shots or just the polished product.


Overcorrections: Portrait Professional does make some features too perfect. While improving appearances is good, changing a face so much that it doesn't look like the same person anymore may not be what you're going for.

Bottom Line

Portrait Professional is a powerful and efficient way to improve the appearances of the faces in all of your photos. While it can sometimes overcorrect certain features, you always have the option to make as many adjustments as you'd like. You can try the software for free, but you can't save your projects, and there are watermarks on the edited images.

Developer's Description

Make people in your photos look nice.

Portrait Professional is a computer program that has been trained in male and female beauty. The software has been shown hundreds of examples of beautiful photographs of human faces, and using sophisticated statistical techniques, it has learnt how to subtly enhance photographs to make them more beautiful.

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, the edges of the lips, and the software then calculates how to make your subject look their absolute best. It allows you to choose how much to enhance the lighting, the skin texture, and even how many wrinkles to remove. Portrait Professional enhances people in the same way lighting and makeup is used to make someone look more attractive.
