    I noticed that using the Smooth Skin software (the standalone version), some details (such as patterns) on the clothings/dress will be removed as well.

    I find that the final result may become too soft. Also, color saturation drops as well.

    By the way, what is this "enhance pink color" and "double clean" thing. These 2 boxes are checked by default. Should we uncheck them or what?

    I do agree that it does gets the job done quickly for someone who is not an expert in retouching works.

    May I ask what is the most recommended auto software for portraiture retouching? Including those that are not free.

    Thanks.

    Actually I find neat Image does the job best of all. Of coz, to obtain details from clothes etc, still have to get down and dirty to do masking in PS.
    If you understand my works, it's photography. If you don't, it's art.

    Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.

    Hi erictan8888,

    I afraid the PS version has to pay one.

    Hi Drudkh,

    "some details (such as patterns) on the clothings/dress will be removed as well"
    Agreed. Software is not yet as intelligence as human yet

    Hi Digi-Learner,

    "May I ask what is the most recommended auto software for portraiture retouching? Including those that are not free."

    I personally feel that the best software is still Photoshop where we can have more control.

    Try Kodak Digital GEM Airbrush Professional. It's not free, but has a few controls whereby you can vary the amount and intensity of skin smoothing. It also reduces the contrast a little, but there are 3 choices you can make here as well. While the software has an uncanny ability to work mostly on the skin areas, there may be some reduction of fine details in clothings etc. Here's a sample pix:

    Original Pix:


    Pix after applying Airbrush Professional in default mode (which I find is a bit strong). No other retouching.


    Normally I apply the airbrushing only lightly to give it a natural look after doing the necessary work with healing brush etc.

    Go to the Kodak Professional website http://www.asf.com/products/plugins/...uginAIRPRO.asp

    You can download the trial version, but I think it superimpose a Kodak watermark on it if you make a print out. You can buy it only from the website as a software download and pay via credit card. Cost S$183.

    By the way, the software is a plugin and not a standalone application. Works with Photoshop, Elements and JASC.
