Having perused the web site for Portrait Professional, I'm curious as to how many of you are using it and how well it works for you. Being an avid PS user, and using certain plug-ins for my portrait work, I'm seeing this software popping up everywhere making me think I'm out of the loop or whatever. So I would like very much to get as many opinions about this program as possible. Also, has anyone ever received this software via a disk and is there a distributership here in the States?

You actually come out better using lightroom 3 and if you have an iPad there are a few apps that can make pictures pop.

I like the software...they have a link that will allow you to try it for 30 days so you can decide for yourself before purchasing......plug-ins are just a series of photoshop actions so there is nothing a plug-in can do that you yourself cant do in photoshop...the thread is correct, good plug-ins are great time-savers....

Try it...I personally love what it can do

I have it and use it very seldom.  It's more of a novelty in my opinion, but has come in handy a few times.  You have total control as to how much or how little you want to change.  As far as I know, you can only purchase it online.  But you can pay a little extra to have a back up disk shipped to you, I think.

I have not bought or used it as I find their advertising provides the most compelling reason not to! Every time I see their ads and the way-too-over-the-top-porcelain-alien face effects I just shake my head and wonder about people that would find the look attractive. But, to each their own and I am sure that my processing elicits the same response from some people!

I find it very good and makes an exceptional job. Plug-ins are not cheating if you you get your point across through different filters your not cheating. It's not a card game it's an art.

Its not a bad plugin if you're working with multiple images, I was one of those guys who thought using a plugin for your images was cheating, but if you have massive workloads and deadline to meet. Then use it and since I've change my way of thinking about  plugins now I use them with most of my images except for the stuff I do for fine prints.

I use it often if I need a quick retouch.  A better one, in my opinion, is the retouching software from Imaginomics.

I think It's called Portrait Pro.  It has more versatility.  A real retoucher will pooh pooh the use of these plugins, and they are right, that you can do a better job with PS, however it is a lot more time intensive and if you have a lot of heads to do it can be a time saver.  There are issues with it if you are going to enlarge the photographs much in that there can be a lot of artifacts.  There are work arounds.

Looked at it a year or two ago.  I don't use it.  The old thread is probably still here, somewhere.
