Anthropics releases Portrait Professional 8 Mac version

Anthropics has released the Mac version of its Portrait Professional 8 software, an intelligent portrait airbrushing software that lets you improve your photos instantly, just by moving a numbers of sliders. For most of us it is clear that the adage WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) is no longer valid in the digital photography age. With the help of image manipulation tools and PhotoShop you can create miracles and disasters. A hilarious example of the latter is this manipulated image which illustrates why Windows Vista is running into the Gates...

How does the automatic touch-up work?

Portrait Professional has been shown hundreds of photographs of beautiful human faces, and using sophisticated statistical techniques, it has learnt how to subtly airbrush and touch-up photographs to make them more beautiful.

All you have to do is choose how much to enhance the lighting, the skin texture and even how many wrinkles to remove. You can even subtly re-sculpt the face to make your subject look as good as possible by just moving a few sliders.

Portrait Professional touches up and enhances people in the same way that good lighting and perfect makeup is used to make someone look more attractive. The software really can make anyone look as good as a celebrity in a magazine.
