Best Software for Portrait Retouch?
Oct 20, 2009

I can only afford one, so i need yours help.

I was looking at Photoshop CS4, Lightrooms, Professional Portrait 9. and play around with the trials.

I like cs4 because it's got all the blemish, curves.....levels easy tool to correct colors and skin tones. Or i can buy a CS3 for cheaper if i can find it.

I light Lightrooms about the Adjustment Brush so easy to bright, sharpen something......... but hard to correct skin tones and hard to clean blemishes.

The Professional Portrait is nice and cheap but most of the time the pictures came out too fake.
Any ideas are very appreciate.
