Akvis (http://www.akvis.com) has released Akvis MakeUp 3.5 for Mac OS X (10.4 and higher) and Windows. Akvis MakeUp automatically smoothes small defects on the skin, making it radiant, beautiful, pure and even, as you can see on artistic images, according to the folks at Akvis.
In version 3.5, a new Share button allows you to quickly publish images from the program in Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Google+. With improved RAW files processing, the list of supported formats has been extended.
The software is designed for tasks such as processing marriage photographs or graduation party photos. Thanks to the Batch Processing feature, you won’t need to process every picture, but can apply the chosen settings to a whole folder with the event shooting. The program is available in plug-in and standalone versions. The plug-in version is compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS5 64-bit.
Akvis MakeUp sells for US$39 for the Home version (either plug-in or standalone), $49 for Home Deluxe (plug-in and standalone), $72 for Business (plug-in and standalone, for commercial use). A demo is available for download. Registered MakeUp users can upgrade to version 3.5 for free.
