Can't deal at all with a face at a 45 degree angle.

Why not skip the auto select step and manually draw the outlines?

Yes, that works better. Still struggles with non-standard angles of the face. I spent 15 minutes looking up in the manual how to skip the auto recognition but couldn't find it and then I realized if you hit cancel out of the initial dialog it goes into manual mode.

BTW, I haven't seen the jpg artifacts yet with the spot removal on. How about you?

I need to dig out the original image that caused the issue and see if it's fixed.

what do you mean by clean up the skin? I never use it for retouching blemishes. I do all that by hand. It does a great job evening skin tone though.

And it bumps the contrast in the iris, whitens the eyes and darkens the eyebrows, lashes and lips. All steps that are very time consuming if done by hand. I really like the software and if you're a pro, it saves you an enormous amount of time. I always put it on its own layer, disable the sculpting and lower the opacity on the PP layer.

I haven't used it that much and I don't do professional protraiture anymore. I just wanted it to enhance some pictures I had but was not super pleased with the result. it does do a great job of whitening the eyes and teeth tho.

you might give portraiture or perfect photo or florabella retouching actions a try. I use them all. They all are great at some things.

I'm very happy with the latest 11.2 upgrade. I have upgraded to 64 bit so I'm not sure if the 32 bit still has the same issue with large files but the 64 bit does not and I am happy. The functionality, speed and improvements in the UI are very significant. I don't think any retouching software is in the same league with portrait professional version 11.

I have used arcsoft, perfect portrait, portraiture and portrait professional is significantly better than those in my opinion though I do like the fact that portraiture does a good job of skin smoothing for women's legs. Not sure if portrait professional does that?

ditto on two of the three above, but I strongly prefer PP.

Folks, there is a learning curve and if you take the time, PP will do a great job.

One thing for me: I never use the first section to change the facial structure. In PS, I make a copy of the image on a new layer and run PP on it. I can then back off on the opacity to taste. This works well on some images.

I do the same thing. Make sure you have sculpting turned off or the layers feature will not work.
