Has anyone tried both of these products, and would you recommend one over the other?

Second, would you recommend either of them at all?

I would prefer something that roundtrips from Lightroom, but am open to other opinions.

Thanks,
Heath

How much portrait work are you doing? If you don't need to assembly-line the images, (and if you have PS) I'd look up frequency separation. It's fairly straightforward once you get the hang of it.

The automatic face/features detection in the new version of Portrait Professional helps to speed up the job even more. Worth the 16 EUR upgrade from ver 10.

I just started using Imagenomic Portraiture, it's pretty awesome. It really does wonders with the click of a button.

It all comes down to what you prefer. Download the trials and play with them.

Run em on a few of the same images and see what works and what doesn't.

I used to prefer Portraiture, but it's been a while since I used either.

As you noted, it's been discussed, in fact if you scroll to the bottom of this page and look in the "Similar Threads" section you will see that your post triggered a forum "mini-search" that got results...

Portrait Pro is pretty cool but its easy to overdo it. Controls are very easy and plenty of them to do just about anything you could want.

This is the best advice I've seen so far in this thread. We get lots of these "which do you prefer" questions and it really boils down to personal preference. How do you, the OP, make a decision if you see a split on the number of people that prefer one over the other. If I prefer Portrait Pro doesn't mean it will be your preference.

I've seen many people that take it even further than the system defaults. This is where your preference come in. As you said the controls are very easy and thus pulling back from the defaults is easy. I don't think I have ever simply accepted the defaults, I always use the sliders to some degree.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

I think what I am really looking for is an update to the following post in the old thread.
https://photography-on-the.net …hp?p=9246988&po​stcount=55

Is this information still accurate, or have there been upgrades over the last year that would impact the statements in that post.

Might also look at Perfect Portrait 2 which can plug in from LR.

I don't know about Imagenomic, but judging by their magazine ads Portrait Professional could also be called "Plastic Fantastic" if the name wasn't already taken.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

It is actually possible to dial down the results Portrait Professional gives you, as the default settings really are too much.

I'm going to recommend Pro Retouch 2.0 instead.
