Photo Restoration With Perfect Portrait

I don’t normally do photo restoration work, but I was recently asked to take a stab at a photograph.

My initial thought, was “I hate working in Photoshop, but if I have to – ok.”

Then it hit me… why not use the Perfect Portrait application from onOne Software?

So that’s what I did.  Take a look:

With some fine turning of the face detection, and usage of the retouching brush in Perfect Portrait, you can restore a good amount of a face without Photoshop.

However, as you can see in the video, Photoshop was still needed in the end – but not nearly as much as it would have been.

If you wanted, you could return to the Perfect Photo Suite, or Photoshop, and add some coloring which could bring the photo to life more. I decided against it since I was only asked to get rid of the tears in the print.

That’s about it – I originally would have never thought of using Perfect Portrait for this task, but it does save a decent amount of time, so I recommend giving it a shot.

Thanks for reading and happy shooting,
