Portrait Professional or PortraitPro is a Windows and Mac based portrait imaging enhancement software targeted at professional and keen amateur photographers. Developed by Anthropics Technology Ltd and first released in July 2006, it has been in continuous development ever since.

The current software, version 18, was released in October 2018, the previous version, 17, was released in October 2017.[1]

PortraitPro, PortraitPro Studio, and PortraitPro Studio Max are image editors for Windows and Mac OS X, specifically targeted at editing portrait photographs.[2]


Rather than using brushes alone as a traditional image editor does, PortraitPro 'instantly detects faces in each image opened' and applies automatic retouching.[3] Further transformations are done through sliders or brushes. One of the unique, but controversial[4] abilities is automatically reshaping the face to fit a model of beauty.[5][6]

The Studio editions do the above and additionally handle raw files, 16 bit per color component TIFF files and color profiles. It is also available as a Photoshop plugin. The Studio Max edition offers automatic batch processing in which multiple images are retouching automatically by the software.


Below is a list of the features currently available in the latest version of PortraitPro, version 18: [7]

  • Automatically detect faces in an image [8]
  • Reshape all or any aspect of the face
  • Corrects skin blemishes such as spots or pimples [9]
  • Smooth out and neaten hair
  • Thicken and re-color hair.[10]
  • Reduce and/or remove wrinkles
  • Remove grease, sweat or shine highlights from the skin
  • Adjust the lighting on the face
  • Add realistic looking makeup[11]
  • Remove red eye
  • Recolor eyes
  • Whiten teeth and eyes [12]
  • Sharpen individual features like eyes, eyebrows, nose and mouth
  • Change backgrounds
  • Add overlays, watermarks or logos


PortraitPro Studio functions as a standalone, as a Photoshop plugin and as a plugin to Elements, Lightroom, and Aperture[13]

Language availability[edit]

PortraitPro is available in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese. Older versions are also available in Swedish, Arabic, Chinese, Korean and Japanese.[14]

Cultural impact[edit]

The cultural impact of airbrushing software being readily available to anyone is a proliferation of airbrushed images being used on social media profiles and online dating sites.[15]

Portrait editing software such as Portrait Professional enables anyone to easily alter their own portrait photographs, making themselves look younger, with less wrinkles and blemishes.[16][17]


Portrait Professional was originally known as My Perfect Picture.[18] Portrait Professional started at version 4. It required a web server to process the image. Version 5 did so as well.[19] Version 6 was the first version to run without needing a connection to a web server.

Version 8 improved face sculpting and slimming, user interface, color calibration and raw support in the Studio version.[20]

Version 9 was the first version to offer ClearSkin skin improving technology and also to work as a standalone and as a Photoshop plugin. Other improvements included the ability to handle profile views, a batch mode, and an intelligent touch up brush.[21] In response to customer requests, version 10 had improved plugin support for Photoshop, Lightroom and Aperture, a new child mode, and an enhance skin only mode.[22] Major improvements in version 11 (November 2012) included its automated face and feature finder, an improved handling of multiple faces within one session, and improved face contouring and slimming.[23]

Version 12, released in March 2014, was rebranded PortraitPro. Major improvements included the ability to change the lighting on the face,[24] improved feature enhancing, and in the Studio Max edition only, an automatic batch mode with the ability to automatically determine age and gender of each face.[25]

Versions 13 and 14 were skipped; the next version sold was 15 in line with the year of release. Later versions have all been named for their release year.[26]

Version 17 was launched in October 2017 and was the first version to include background removal in replacement. It also included a snapshots option for temporarily saving edits to return to later. [27]

Version 18 was released in October 2018, the same month that Anthropics launched PortraitPro Body 3. [28] Version 18 offered improved face detection technology and Smart Filter capability.[29]

Version 19 was released in October 2019 . [30] Version 19 offered Intelligent Skin Smoothing, Enhanced Hair Retouching, Expression Sliders and Interactive Tutorials.[31]

Key New Features

NEW Sky Replacement

PortraitPro’s new Sky Replacement tool brings in technology from LandscapePro, advanced landscape editing software also created by Anthropics. Masking the sky can be exceedingly difficult and time-consuming; it is now possible to change skies with the click of a button. The program changes the overall look of the image by altering color and tone that reflects the mood of the new sky, this can be from pre-selected stock images included with the software, or loaded in by the user for a more authentic influence.

NEW Lighting Brushes

There is no better method for bringing a design to life and emphasizing design elements than using an effective and high-quality light effect. PortraitPro’s new light effects will take portraits to a new level. From glowing light streams to realistic relighting elements, these new lighting tools are powerful, easy to use and will speed up your workflow with ease.

NEW Clone Tool

The new Clone Tool enables precise control when removing items or imperfections. It allows users to copy exact details and color from one area of an image to another.

NEW History Tool

Users can now easily switch between any recent state of the image from the current working session, track individual changes, and restore a portion of an image to an earlier state.

NEW De-Noising and Sharpening

There are several factors which can cause noise within photos, including low light scenarios, high sensitivity modes, or slow shutter speeds. With PortraitPro 21, users can easily reduce noise and sharpen images without sacrificing quality.

NEW Color Styles

PortraitPro users can save time during the design process by making use of the new Color Styles feature. Rather than switching tools and filling layers, PortraitPro users can now simply use a one-click Color Style tool, and see enhanced tones and styles in real time.

Easily add highlights and balayage-style treatments with the new hair highlighting tool. Customize undertones, add highlights, adjust strength, and increase vibrance for salon-level coloring results.
