Better Skin Tones with Portraiture 2.0
A signficant part of the visual processing part of the human brain is devoted to face recognition. As such, we’re extremely sensitive to slight changes in skin color – a blush that might show embarrassment, for example – and texture. In addition to good lighting, one of the best ways to make portraits appear more attractive is to do a little work on your subject’s skin, not just to hide blemishes and possibly reduce wrinkles, but to soften and smooth skin texture in general. Imagenomic’s Portraiture 2.0 plug-in is an excellent one-stop tool for performing sophisticated skin corrections.
As with many edits, a little bit of skin correction goes a long way. Personally, I’m tired of the plastic-looking airbrushed skin that has become so prevalent in magazines, and you can definitely create this look with Portraiture. But Imagenomic has done a great job of providing a deep level of control that lets you achieve precisely the amount of adjustment that you want. What’s most amazing about this plug-in, though, is how much it can achieve automatically, with little or no work from you.
