    Default Portrait Professional Software.

    Anyone have used this, may I know how useful is the Portrait Professional with the Max option which can edit RAW images.

    Thinking of buying to save me time, any help with your feedback is much appreciated.

    US$ is low, good time to buy this software if it is really good, but the trial version is without RAW editing, anyone who is using it, would appreciate feedback, thanks.

    Save your money and learn how to retouch portraits in Photoshop with your own skills. After working with a few Photoshop plug-ins I find most of them useless.

    What you need a a good graphic tablet (such as a Wacom Intuos 3) and a pair of good eyes. I do conduct workshops for Basic and Advance Adobe Photoshop Portraiture Retouching if you are interested.

    In the meantime, know your basics first. A good starting point is to read the book titled "Skin - The Complete Guide to Digitally Lighting, Photographing, and Retouching Faces and Bodies" by Lee Varis. How do you retouch a portrait if you don't have the basic knowledge for different skin textures, skin tones and skin colors? This book shows you all.

    My studio switched from Aperture to Lightroom. The interface of Lightroom is more user-friendly and its integration with Photoshop is seamless.

    Agree.

    I hated Aperture while my studio was using it. I preferred Adobe Bridge then. Now... it is Lightroom (which is based on Adobe Bridge).

    But Lightroom still need editing right? too much time taken to edit photo for novice user like me, so thinking of quick and easy software.

    Mostly take portraitures of people anyway.

    Why do you still need to edit your images if you shoot with care?

    Aperture is not a "do-all" software. Even if you need to retouch you portraits, you will still have to import your images to Photoshop.

    if you are familiar with iphoto structures should not be a issue with aperture. Maybe different people have different needs and wants. I more to the apple standards since my home own the entire structure of apple like final cut studio,etc..so i am able to understand and used their structures but not most people. Apple have a aperture professional support forum whereby some of the pro that used both lightroom and aperture still prefers aperture. For pple who are too used to adobe platforms will find it hard to understand aperture platform but once you get to the flow you will like it. For me i am still not used to the way adobe created their platform.
