Advanced Controls to Enhance Retouching ProcessImagenomic recently completed a comprehensive public beta test period for Portraiture 2 with over 1000 registered participants, and numerous public demonstrations at industry events including Photokina08 (Cologne, Germany) and PhotoPlus Expo (NYC). In addition to today's release of Portraiture 2 for Adobe Photoshop, a version for Apple® Aperture® is completing its' public beta test phase, and a new version for Adobe Lightroom® will be introduced for public beta testing shortly. Both new versions will be commercially released in the coming weeks.
The response to Imagenomic's latest plug-in product has been overwhelmingly positive, with enthusiastic feedback from across the photographic and retouching communities, including some of the most respected photographers and educators in the industry.
“With the advent of the Portraiture Plug-in, Imagenomic has changed the game for retouching in Photoshop,” says Scott Stulberg, a professional photographer and art instructor at UCLA.” There is no easier or better software available to remove imperfections and smooth out skin. Showing Portraiture 2 in my Photoshop Portrait Retouching classes, the response has been phenomenal. Whether you want precise control or just want to put it on autopilot, your end result will look like you had the best make up artist with you at every shoot.”
"Being successful in wedding photography today demands that you streamline your workflow. Our retouching team loves the new Portraiture 2 plug-in,” explains Andy Marcus, owner of Fred Marcus Studio and Canon Explorer of Light. “We truly believe it is a great product and the best we have seen for smoothing skin textures. We use it daily and my clients love the results.”
"Natural-looking retouching is very important to our Senior work,” explains Tim Schooler, award-winning Senior and Fashion photographer. The crew at Imagenomic has done it again with the latest version of their fantastic Portraiture plug-in. Faster, better and more features. It saves us so much time, we couldn't imagine being without it."
“Most Plug-ins just make claims – Portraiture really works!” exclaims Katrin Eismann, Photoshop Diva and Chair, Digital Photography Department at the School of Visual Arts, NYC.
