Portrait Professional – Another Way To Make Your Photographs Better

Anytime you take a close up image, it’s easy to find areas to change: soften a wrinkle, add a sparkle to the eyes, or remove traces of acne. While I’ve used Photoshop for years, I’ll be the first to admit I’m not an expert. I know the things to help my images become better – and, well, that’s about it.

If you’re trying to break into the photography business, learning all there is about the business and taking better photos is more than enough. So why not make your life a little easier, and use tools that can work for you – instead of making you spend hours in a training class?

Anthropics Technology’s Portrait Professional software makes the entire process easy. Instead of requiring you to understand and use an array of tools and filters to perform adjustments, it automates much of the process for you.



When you open up your photograph and launch the program, you are guided through each step. Start by choosing Male or Female to set the default facial adjustments for that gender.
