ArcSoft has released their Perfect365 portrait makeover software for free download.
Perfect365 appears, to this writer’s eye, to combine facial recognition with blur and blend mode effects. The samples show promise (if you like a smoooooth look), with ‘templates’ for various makeup styles. All seem to make the eyes bug out a bit as is common in contemporary ‘model’ stylings. Some before/after samples show the faces squeezed into a ‘thinner you’ kind of shape as well. The overall impression is that of a time-saving approach for portrait photographers selling ‘package’ type portfolios. Worth a closer look if you do this kind of work.
