Halloween makeup

Portrait editing for Halloween greetings cards

It’s nearly Halloween, but there’s still plenty of time to find those photos you took last year, polish them up and make them spookily better.

Wanting to wish your neighbors Happy Halloween? Use your last year’s images for your Halloween cards, and you can use your photo editing software to make them even spookier.

Use the hair recoloring tools to make hair darker, or redder, or ghostly gray! Use the eye controls to enhance or change eye color.  You wouldn’t normally use a really strong or intense color, but this time you can use your full creative imagination to make something just a little beyond reality.

There are some great effects in Smart Photo Editor, which can help you create really eerie images.

Our wonderful community of Smart Photo Editor users have created their own spooky effects, and you get to use them too. There are several different effects available under the categories of Gothic or Horror film, or Mystery, that could make your Halloween images authentically creepy!

Don’t forget to check out our blog post from last year, on how Smart Photo Editor can add ghosts to your family portraits too!

Why not share your best Halloween images on our Facebook pages?

Fashion Portrait with Makeup in PortraitPro 15

Fashion Week Portraits with makeup in PortraitPro 15

Ideal for use on your fashion portraits, the latest version of PortraitPro now comes with new tools to add and adjust makeup.  The easy-to-use sliders make PortraitPro ideal for adjusting your fashion portraits.

When the skin and the makeup are flawless, then the image is all about the fashion, and the model’s look, the style and the message that the photographer wants to convey.  Natural skin touch up means that the fashion speaks for itself.

Whether you’re a professional attending the runway events at Fashion Week, or an aspiring amateur capturing street photography, PortraitPro is an affordable addition to your workflow. Give your images that magazine –ready look, without the hard work.

If your model didn’t have the makeup look that you wanted, maybe you wanted a different color lipstick, or eyeshadow, to better match the outfit, then you can add this in PortraitPro.

PortraitPro also has tools for relighting your subjects, so if the lighting set up wasn’t quite how you wanted it, then you can adjust it to suit the look you wanted.  At an event or out on the street, you don’t have the control over the situation that you would have in your own studio, so you have to do the best you can with the  light you do have, and with Portrait Pro, you can make the changes you need.

With your portrait editing software you have full creative freedom, to make any changes you want. With the sliders, you can make the effects as subtle or as dramatic as you wish, and you can even create your own presets, so the software keeps making the changes that suit your style.
