Any body tried using Portrait Professional 10

I tried it years ago and did not like it, but, current version 10 appears to do a good job.

Of course I use Ultimate for processing and expose to eliminate blown high lights, so frequently get a high fill figure.  ( Ultimate so good I find I can rarely better Ultimates first raw default shot).

A lot of my photos of girls faces end up with 'muddy' shadows under the eyes, chin etc etc which have to be cloned/dodged/burned in Elements.
I wonder if this is the result of the rather high fill figure.  I suspect bad lighting - studio and outside -  No faces available at present to further test this.

Any way, PProf10 seems to do the job quite well, even my wife likes the results, on a dolly bird face - not my wife's face that is!! Touching up a dolly on screen is one the few pleasures left to me Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley

Cannot post any images as the trial version of prog. does not allow saving of processed images.  Prob a screen dump would do.

Hi Jeff,
Any body tried using Portrait Professional 10
I just looked at the home page: the examples that come up are initially all over sharpened to show off their softening effect - you can do that in QU with TTS!  Cool. You can remove blemishes too but not make eyes larger, make faces thinner and give girls botox lips. You really can flatter or disguise someone with that software.  Shocked
I suspect bad lighting - studio and outside
Too much contrast I suspect.
