Hello all,

I am doing more and more portrait shots and was wondering what everyone else uses to clean up the photos besides Photoshop. I've been looking at Portrait Professional and hear it is a good product.

Any ideas???

Why would you need special software for portrait photos, besides PhotoShop? :-\

I use lots of different programs for photo manipulation but for airbrushing faces I've not seen anything that can rival Photoshop.

Supposedly it clears up any blemishes and cleans up all the rough edges, so to speak

Nik Color Effex pro 3.0 is a pretty cool software. It is available as a plugin for Photoshop. Apart from usage for portraits you can use it for many different things. The following image was a very boring normal image of wheat.
After Nik effex it looks like this: http://stockxpert.com/browse.phtml?f=view&id=17383431
And that was even accepted by iStock.
You can get a 15 day trial version.

The drawback is the price, 300 Euro in Germany.

Definitely, "Kodak digital gem" plugin for photoshop, "imagenomic noiseware" plugin for photoshop, and photoshop healing brush, and everyone turns into professional model ;)

good make-up, patch tool, clone tool duplicate layer, surface blur so all the small details disappear, opacity at 30% and mask

Of course, you can do almost everything in photoshop, but not always everything fast and easy. Try it out, its amazing. (Trial version is free)
Yes the price is a bit high . But it can be worth it depending on what you need it for.

I have to agree with whitechild on this one. I think Kodak digital gem is the one piece I've been missing and for the price of $99 I think it is well worth it.

Thanks for your help!!!!!

You can do so much with photoshop, I strongly advise you first to learn to use it well before paying crazy money. I got once to postproccess over 100 selected high fashion shots with just photoshop on magazine quality level in 8 hrs for an advertizing photography studio. It's like Microsoft Word, people tend to use just 10% of the software.

I have to agree with vikavalter. It would be good for you to learn how to use photoshop, because you can do so much with it. Basically I like to use plugins, but I don't like to depend on them
