Perfection is hard to achieve, and this applies to every aspect of our lives, including our photos. Flaws are almost as inevitable as “death and taxes” when it comes to photo portraits. Anyway, the good news is that there are ways to get closer to the perfection that we all crave regarding our photo portraits. Using AKVIS MakeUp to embellish, enhance, retouch, and fix photo portraits is one of these ways, and it's actually one of the most effective ones as well.

AKVIS MakeUp is a powerful application that offers a precise, yet convenient and easy, manner of retouching and embellishing portraits. It allows you to perform accurate corrections and modifications to the portraits without requiring you to have thorough graphic editing experience. In other words, it produces the same results as intricate and expensive graphic editing suites, but without the high costs and without requiring the knowledge of how to use this kind of tools.

AKVIS Makeup is easy-to-use and capable of erasing small skin defects and other issues from a digital photo portrait in a pretty fast manner, especially when the Express mode that enables performing corrections with one single mouse click via the default settings is used. The other mode, the Advanced one, is more suitable for advanced users that prefer to thoroughly control the details of the retouching and to have access to more sophisticated image manipulation functions. Regardless of the used mode, this tool can make a person look truly great in a photo, without flaws, acne, pimples, warts, and other unwanted elements.

Other remarkable benefits offered by this cool program are the batch processing feature that enables applying the same adjustments and retouches to multiple photos at a time, the support for a large variety of image file formats, including RAW ones, and many preset effects. Furthermore, this app can be used both as a standalone application and as a plugin for image processing suites like Photoshop.

To sum it all up, AKVIS Makeup is a great tool that makes adding virtual makeup to photo portraits a really simple and precise job.
