PRESS RELEASE: onOne Software Introduces Perfect Portrait
Brand new product from onOne provides photographers with automated and intuitive tools for portrait retouching.
Portland, OR-- September 7, 2011 -- onOne Software, Inc., a leading developer of innovative, timesaving solutions for professional and advanced amateur photographers, today introduced Perfect Portrait, part of the new Perfect Photo Suite 6 that was also announced today.
Perfect Portrait is a completely new product that offers the latest innovations in portrait retouching for photographers with automatic face and feature detection saving photographers time from having to make selections manually. Additionally, Perfect Portrait makes short work of improving skin texture, skin color, removing blemishes and enhancing features for eyes, lips and teeth by providing robust yet easy to use tools and controls.
As photographers do more of their work in applications like Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom software and Apple Aperture, onOne has evolved its product line to support these changing workflows. Users can use any of the newest onOne products as standalone applications as well as accessing them from within Photoshop, Lightroom or Aperture allowing users to use these new products where they want. To further streamline workflows, users of Perfect Photo Suite 6 will now be able to move effortlessly between all of the individual products using the new Module Selector within Perfect Photo Suite 6.
"For years, portrait photographers have had to rely on outside retouching services or spend hours learning or finding the non-intuitive methods to enhance portraits using pixel editing applications," said Craig Keudell, president of onOne Software. "We wanted to develop a portrait retouching product that would deliver amazing, professional quality results in a simple to use application. Perfect Portrait will automatically find a single face or multiple faces in an image and then give you incredibly intuitive controls to enhance a portrait in a fraction of the time it takes with traditional tools."

Key Benefits of Perfect Portrait:
Designed for Portrait Retouching from the Ground Up: Photographers will appreciate having just the right tools to quickly enhance and retouch portraits. Unnecessary tools or controls that might get in the way are left out intentionally.
Automatic Face Detection: Because Perfect Portrait automatically detects faces, photographers can get directly to the art of retouching. Each face in the image is located automatically so that they don't have to be identified through the use of complicated wizards. If there are multiple people in an image, each can have their own, unique settings. Most importantly, the rest of the image is untouched so it maintains its original fidelity.
Automatic Feature Detection: More than just finding each face, Perfect Portrait also quickly finds the eyes and mouth in a portrait automatically. No time is wasted painting in the features or using manual wizards. Because the features are identified right away, photographers can quickly get to the task of enhancing those critical features.
Retouch Brush: The brand new retouch brush in Perfect Portrait removes acne, stray hairs, veins and other blemishes. Just dab the retouch brush on a blemish and it is gone automatically.
Skin Blemish Removal and Smoothing: With Perfect Portrait, you will get great looking natural skin automatically because the application maintains realistic skin structure so portraits don't look over retouched. Small imperfections like wrinkles and deep pores can be quickly smoothed to give the skin an even consistency. Perfect Portrait can be used on just the face or the entire body.
Accurate Skin Color Correction: Perfect Portrait helps achieve accurate and natural skin color automatically. This color correction technology adjusts color based on the skin color and ethnicity of each face in the image.
Works Anywhere: Perfect Portrait works directly with Lightroom and Aperture and even as a standalone application. It also works as a plug-in to Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Photoshop Elements.
Perfect Portrait will be available in late October as standalone product for $99.95 and as part of the Perfect Photo Suite 6 for $299.95. Owners of Plug-In Suite 5 or earlier versions can upgrade to Perfect Photo Suite 6 for $149.95. For more information on upgrade options visit http://www.ononesoftware.com/upgrade/.
