Has anyone on here got portrait professional software.

I have it, and it can work quite well; once or twice I have noticed it can have a tendency to over do it, but on the whole it was good.

I think you could download a trial version from the site - I'm sure I tried beofre buying.

There is a quote attributed to David Bailey I keep in mind, and I really think it applies to this package:

Paraphrasing:-

"PP can make a bad photographer look avarage and a good photographer look avarage"


I use blue text because that's normally the colour of the air around Bailey :D

Look seriously at saving the hard earned and getting it right in the camera and with good lighting.

If you do portraits, it's actually really good despite the rather basic looking interface. I find Imagenomic Portraiture to be better, as it'll apply any effects to all skin tones in the image, not just the face like PP does.

I think it is more about the subject/model and their make-up. However, that said, one of my daughters (I mean one of my models) gave an unexpected reaction ... "Dad; where have my freckles gone! That's not me..." So PP sits there as a tool that I can call upon if needed.

PS there was a special offer on when I bought it. I think this was from the DSLR user site. Probably time expired now.
