The latest version, PortraitPro 15, includes features requested by a wide variety of  photographers, including realistic makeup controls, wide angle (selfie) lens distortion correction, an enhanced Child Mode, advanced skin colouring and tone correction. It also supports improved feature detection and is usable on the latest ultra-high resolution displays.

Based on research into how real cosmetics work, the new set of makeup controls delivers the most  natural results in the industry via simple slider controls. The new Lens Correction slider fixes distortion caused by a wide-angle  lens (known as selfie distortion on smartphones), creating more natural-looking, flattering portraits from pictures taken on wide-angle lenses or smartphones. Children need very different treatment from adults in terms of photographic enhancement so PortraitPro 15 has also been tweaked to provide more suitable adjustments for child portraiture. New skin colouring controls provide ‘intelligent’ corrections for any lighting situation and give skin a healthy, natural glow. The feature detector has been made more accurate in version 15 to improve the quality of results and speed throughout.
