Forget the airbrush: This is the way to improve human portraits—within Photoshop or outside
The UK-based Anthropics Technology has launched PortraitPro Body -- claimed to be the industry’s first dedicated full body retouching software. It promisesto greatly simplify and speeds up body photo editing. It is fast and easy way to retouch upper body and full -length portrait photos, producing professional results in minutes.
PortraitPro Body’s technology is based on academic research into human appearance and on extensive training in human body shape and beauty, which ensures fast automation and the most appropriate, fully adjustable results. PortraitPro Body retouching software is available in two editions - Standard (standalone) and Studio (standalone and plugin for Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, and Lightroom).
The software works differently from the customary ordinary airbrushing and warping techniques. Andrew Berend, CEO, Anthropics Technology says full body portrait touch-up can be achieved by anyone in just a few minutes using an intuitive slider interface which gives users easy manual control. “PortraitPro Body was created in response to photographers’ need for a dedicated, easy-to-use body editing tool," he adds, " We continue to introduce user-friendly, powerful software to improve photographers’ workflow and to expand their creativity.” The new offering eliminates the need to learn complex techniques or to make the substantial time or financial commitment, associated with traditional retouching. It makes professional full body portrait editing accessible to all.
