Beauty in a box? Believe it or not, here’s an interesting program that really allows you to do complete makeovers on your images with the click of a button and Intensity sliders. Perfect365 — a free download from ArcSoft (www.arcsoft.com) allows you to see results quickly with standard tricks such as face reshaping, teeth whitening, and blemish removal. But it’s really more, so let’s take a look.
Some cool features in Perfect365 make this a fun and creative tool. Options allow you to apply colored contacts and one-click styles let you select from templates that include Natural, Red Lips, and Cat Eyes, to name a few. The Enhancements panel is where you can choose from categories such as: Skin, to remove blemishes, circles, whiten skin, apply foundation, etc.; Face, to slim the face, lift cheeks, or enhance the nose; Eyes, to apply eyeliners, colored contacts, color, and brighten; and Mouth to deepen smiles, add lipstick, and whiten teeth. With the tools and parameters, there’s no limit what you can do to your images! You may use this more for photos of women at first but when you get used to it, you’ll find plenty of uses for photos of men, as well.
This isn’t going to replace your favorite editing program for your professional work but I think this is one of the best programs for quick results, and the control and capabilities provide a wide range of options for your images. The ability to export at full resolution is also a huge plus for those who need to keep the budget in check while being able to print at full resolution.
