Imagenomic Portraiture plugin

Has anybody used the Portraiture plugin from Imagenomic? http://www.imagenomic.com/products.aspx I'd like to know your opinion on it. The samples on the site look pretty good. I d/l the trial and didn't have near the success, but that could be just not playing with it enough.

Thanks.

It works great!

here is a simple before and after we did.

There is a good amount of tweaking you can do in the paid version. Not sure how much you can do in the demo. From my point of view it was well worth the investment.

I have it and do find it very good. You have to play with it a bit to get the same results as shown but overall I give it thumbs up.

See this page for some of my results with it. Based on my web stats, all Imagenomic products are quite consistently popular.

Re: Imagenomic Portraiture plugin

its a waist of money. I think. You can do a better job if you just learn how to use photoshop. The effects are fake looking. They would never pass as a professional edit. If you just want to do fun stuf at home and have money to throw away then go for it. If your trying to be a professional. Then this is not a good plugin.

Re: Imagenomic Portraiture plugin

I agree with the "it can have a plastic look". I had to play with it a bit to not "overdo" the softening. While the skin can be enhance nicely with the filter it has to be used delicately.

Re: Imagenomic Portraiture plugin

I have to disagree with MatthewMarshall. All Imagenomic plug-ins including Portraiture are by far best on the market and all the other available retouching plug- ins do not even come close.
Portraiture can be a very powerful tool in photographer's hands improving tremendously work flow of a busy photographer and it produces very professional results.
Buying best piano is not going to make you virtuoso when you do not know how to play it- it is same story with that plug-in - you have to know how to use it. You have to have an eye not to over do it.
For beginners I recommend duplicating the layer of the image -you going to work on- and use plug-in default settings. After -in Layers palette- slide opacity slider to your likings.
I used Portraiture on these images I attach so you can judge yourself how pro or not they look.

Re: Imagenomic Portraiture plugin

Waldemar your images are very nice, Your a good photographer. the filter is fine for the everyday studio use. It does save time editing mom and dads kids images. But if your trying to do pro work for a mag, or major publication its just not good for that. So the real; question is what is Dennis goal? what would he be using the filters on. mom and pop images or for a magazine and billboards, ect.???
