A one-click make over program from ArcSoft.com
I recently purchased a new camera, a nice 16 mega pixel Fuji. It came with a bundle of software and one of them was the Perfect365. I did not know anything about it, but installed it anyway.
My cousin sent a montage with the pictures that he paid a designer to create. He asked what I thought of it and wanted an honest reply.
Needless to say I did tell him what I thought of the design. So he sent a bundle of pictures and asked for some ideas.
I used the Perfect 365 for the first time on the images to clean up the faces. It did a nice job. there was just a bit more touching up that I wanted.
I color corrected the images and wondered why an image of the Irish countryside with all the nice greenery around the house was turned into a black and white image. It made no sense. So I took a bit of time and started to work the layout in Photoshop.
I used some styles, filters and masks that were refined.
A big difference. What do you think?
To add to this my cousin lives in Ireland and I in the United States. I have never met him face to face, but have known him for the past 15 years. One of my hobbies is researching our family history and this is how we found each other. We shortly found that the information I had and the information he had came from the same sources. My great aunt and cousin started researching the family back in the 1940's and I received all of my aunts notes from my mother. Our cousin who lived in New Zealand and who corresponded with my aunt had given my cousin his notes. So the sharing continues and with greater results.
This is a great way of using Photoshop with other programs to speed up our work.
