Quick Tip: Retouching Skin

Posted on April 15, 2014

Sometimes retouching skin goes beyond only applying adjustments to your subjects face. What about shoulders, arms, and even legs? Good news! Perfect Portrait, part of Perfect Photo Suite 8, also allows you to easily adjust these areas of skin and not just the face. Quickly apply smoothing, color correction, shine removal, and other common adjustments wherever needed. So whether you are looking for model skin or simply removing blemishes, Perfect Portrait is the one stop shop for retouching skin.
