Perfect Portrait 3 Preview!!!


I love to tinker and I wanted to update Perfect Portrait 2 and I am finally almost finished! This version has an improved Vivid Color layer, doesn't have as much harsh contrast, has a really nice boost layer, and has automatic skin smoothing (so you don't have to paint on a layer mask). I also am removing the Skin Repair layer (this should be done before starting the action) and the B&W conversion layer (not necessary).

I am really excited about this update. Perfect Portrait 3 can actually replace Perfect Portrait 1 and 2 (however, the original versions still work great). I will be posting the action with a detailed tutorial in the next few days. I will also have a small auto skin smoothing action following it.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I ♥ you.

  3. Cool! I can't wait to see it. I use PP1 on almost all my portraits.

    P.S. I'm also loving the 2020 action. I make cards and that action really helps to sharpen the colours before I post to my blog.

  7. YAY! Now I just need to get my camera out more often so I have portraits to use! I have been SUCH a slacker lately.

  8. Thanks so much! you are so generous with your talents. i am so curious how it will smooth skin without smoothing the rest of the image and get it right on the skin. can't wait to see.

  9. I'm excited to try your new portrait action but I gotta tell you, I can't seem to drag myself away from Baby PowderRoom as my "perfect portrati" action. I'll keep trying them all but I always come back to that one!

  10. Can't wait - I use Perfect Portrait 2 and LOVE IT! I paid for Portrait Professional last year (before I found your actions), and got a free upgrade to version 10 - and I MUCH prefer your action. So much so, I not longer use the "professional" product as yours is easier to use and gives more natural results. I hope to be able to put a donation in your box very soon, your work is so worth it!! Please keep it up, I find your blog inspiring!

  15. Ooh I'm excited! But, can I make a request/suggestion? Please keep the BW conversion!!! It is so convenient, and I love how it looks.. more than my other conversions. I was just telling my husband how easy it is to offer my clients both versions when I want to, because all I have to do is click the BW conversion and save it again. I'm excited to see how the skin smoothing works, but I would probably stick to the Perfect Portrait 2 if the 3 doesn't have the BW conversion.
    Thanks for all you offer!! :)

  19. Awesome! I love PP2 and an updated version sounds so exciting! I (like another commenter) love having the BW conversion right there in the action (it just saves a step)...can you pretty please leave it in there? I LOVE your actions. Thanks so much for all you do!
