Portraiture 2 brings state-of-the-art retouching tool to Aperture
March 28th, 2009 by Administrator    


Newly engineered for Aperture 2, Portraiture 2 from Imagenomic lets portrait photographers dramatically reduce the amount of time spent retouching portraits. Using the new plug-in, Aperture customers can automatically generate skin tone masks, save them as presets, and achieve perfect skin with a click. The plug-in offers extensive controls for refining and previewing masks.

About Portraiture

Portraiture for Aperture is a new version of Imagenomic’s popular software plug-in for skin retouching. Portraiture eliminates the tedious manual labor of selective masking and pixel-by-pixel treatments to help you achieve excellence in portrait retouching with a few simple clicks. It intelligently smoothens and removes skin imperfections while preserving skin texture and other important portrait details such as hair, eyebrows, eyelashes etc.

Portraiture features a powerful masking tool that enables selective smoothening only in the skin tone areas of the image. What makes Portraiture’s masking tool truly unique is its built-in Auto-Mask feature. It helps you quickly discover most of the skin tone range of the image automatically and, if preferred, you can manually fine-tune it to ensure optimal results, providing unmatched precision and productivity.

For finer control, you can specify the smoothening degree for different detail sizes and adjust the sharpness, softness, warmth, brightness and contrast. Portraiture comes with pre-defined presets for one-click effects. You can also capture your own signature workflow in custom presets tailored to your specific creative requirements and the look of your photographic portfolio. Many more features.

This package came as a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop and Apple Aperture 2. And it costs $199 if you get it invidually and $299 for the the bundle of both. It’s kind of costy, but for the time you spend doing it manually in Photoshop, it saves you a lot of money in the long run. Something like above would take at least 10 – 15 minutes with a skilled photoshop expert, but it only took me under a minute to achieve the same result.
