Imagenomic Portraiture review

imagenomic portraiturePortraiture is a Photoshop plugin which helps you to retouch portraits quickly and efficiently. Imagenomic Portraiture saves you a lot of time because you no longer need to spend hours on selective masking and tedious use of multiple Photoshop tools. Portraiture smoothens the skin and removes imperfections such as wrinkles, dark circles and freckles at the same time preserving skin pore texture and avoiding plastic look. Portraiture also preserves portrait details such as hairs, eyebrows, lashes. Besides natural looking portrait retouching, Portraiture can be used to create high-contrast and glamour effects for professional advertising and fashion photography.

Portraiture algorithms work by automatically generating a mask for your image, based on skin tone and preserving other portrait details. Then you can smoothen the skin only in the selected by tone areas of the image. Portraiture allows you to use it in a batch so you can put it on complete autopilot and get great results. It also supports bracketing so you can compare how different settings apply to your image at the same time.
