Guidance - Portrait Professional vs Photoshop for Portrait work
Nov 5, 2012

I suppose I'm seeking clarification/confirmation from the more experienced amongst you !

But am I right in thinking that using the tools within Photoshop will yeild better more natural looking results than software like Portrait Professional ?

From what I see the results from PP look very fake even on the lower settings. If this is not the way to go, would anyone like to share their workflow of what they do with Portrait retouching in PS?

I tried out a dodge and burn process that I followed on a youtube video which I was very impressed with and offered me far more control compared to the automation of PP.
