Anthropics Technology’s PortraitPro is macOS compatible, retouching software with face relighting technology that offers a fast, easy way to touch up your photos.
With version 12, it added new face relighting technology, so you can now literally show your subject in their best light. It has an enhanced capability to slim faces and take off the weight off that the camera puts on.
Version 15 adde full make-up controls, allowing you to apply lipstick, eyeshadow, blusher and more. It also added: the ability to fix portraits taken with a wide-angled lens with a simple slider; advanced skin coloring controls; improved facial detection; and support for Mac Retina displays.
PortraitPro incorporates Anthropics' skin enhancer that retains natural skin texture when removing blemishes. The brush also detects edges automatically, making it fast to use.
What's more, PortraitPro can improve the appearance of hair. Hair can be thickened and made smooth. It can be recolored, or highlights added, all by moving sliders.
The software can detect the age and gender of faces in the photograph so that the the most appropriate enhancements can automatically be applied to men, women and children. It’s a fine tool to add to your photo editing arsenal.
PortraitPro 12 on the Mac requires macOS 10.6 or higher. There are a variety of different versions (ranging from the "normal" version to the "Studio Max" version). A demo is available for download.
