ArcSoft, the minds behind other great photo manipulation software such as PhotoStudio and Panorama Maker, has delivered exactly what it promises in Perfect365 [NO LONGER AVAILABLE] with its “one-click makeover” functionality. As a 22-year old male who isn’t particular interested in fashion or makeup, I’ve been incredibly impressed with what this software is able to do behind such little effort from the user. Perfect365 allows you to apply an instant makeover to your photographs with a single click.
Not only is Perfect365 effective and easy to use, but it’s very affordable at just $29.99 for Windows and $39.99 for Mac (though there is also a free version available). This week, we’re giving 25 copies of Perfect365 away (worth a total of $999) absolutely free. Interested? Read over this review and see more details on the giveaway near the bottom of this post.
that should keep the simplest or pickiest of critics satisfied. Multi-face detection and one-click templates make usage a breeze. You can click here [NO LONGER AVAILABLE] to learn more at the official website.
Upon running the software, you’re able to open a new photo or import your photographs directly from Facebook or Twitter, which is another huge timesaver. From there, your photograph is immediately imported into Perfect365’s makeover view where you’re offered instant, one-click effects to enhance and edit your photograph.
Click on any of the effects under the Instant Look column and it will immediately show an active preview of what the photograph will look like. In a single click, here is an example of the transformation you can expect:
The difference is quite drastic, and this particular effect really exemplifies the brilliance of Perfect365’s face detection technology. It required no manual tweaking from us and, as you can see, managed to soften the skin, redden the lips, and shadow the eyes.
However, if you aren’t pleased with the automated enhancements that are made to your photograph and you’d like to make sure Perfect365 does it perfectly, just click the Adjust Key Points button near the top and you’re able to adjust whatever is necessary.
Back to the makeover view, you’ll also notice that there are many other more narrowly-defined enhancements available to you on the right-hand side. Such enhancements include the removal of blemishes, slimming the face, lifting the cheeks, brightening the eyes, and whitening teeth. Each of these will also allow you to modify the intensity of the effect so that you can fine-tune your look to exactly how you want it.
Below is an example of our very same photograph with the skin lightened, eye color changed, slimming applied to the face, and slightly enlarged eyes.
Again, I’m no professional here. That took a little under an entire minute for me to do.
After you’ve decided that you’re pleased with your look, you’re able to save the photograph. Simply click the Save As button at the bottom right. If you’re not one of our lucky giveaway winners or you have yet to buy the software, your photos cap at the 600×600 resolution. Owners of the full version are able to save photographs of any size.
With Perfect365, beautifying your photographs couldn’t get any easier. This is definitely a piece of software that any female should want to get their hands on. With no more skills other than being able to point and click, you’re able to edit your photographs more effectively than ever before.
Again, we’ll be giving away 25 free copies of Perfect365 to our lucky readers who participate in this giveaway.
