The trees are budding, the flowers are blooming and the weather is getting warmer, nicer and just all around more fun to be out and about shooting. what could be better? Oh maybe 40% off some software that helps you edit them?
For the next 3 days OnOne Software is offering up to 40% off their products. I recently upgraded and have been using their Perfect Portrait 2 software. This version offers great improvements over the first version, and I have just begun to start digging into its capabilities.Equipment: Nikon D700, Nikon 85mm Post Processing: Lightroom, OnOne Perfect Portrait 2, Photoshop Shot Info: 1/250 sec at f 11, ISO 200
The above image was processed first with photoshop to remove large skin imperfections and then run through OnOne Perfect Portrait 2. The software did a good job of softening skin without going to the plastic zone. The eyes are a bit on the overly whitened side for me and I probably should have decreased that a bit or thrown a mask over them in photoshop and lowered the opacity. The teeth whitening does a realistic job and the eye detail enhancement works far faster than it took me on average in photoshop.
Perfect Portrait is just one of the programs in the suite. I have discussed Perfect Effects 4 in previous blogs and you can see an image in my “Nik Software + OneOne Software = One Suite Life” post. The whole suite offers many benefits to opening up a photographers creative side in post.
