PortraitPro 12 adds face relighting, hair and skin enhancement tools
Anthropics Technology has announced the launch of PortraitPro 12, featuring realistic photo enhancement tools. Including new face relighting technology, the software can emulate realistic natural lighting to improve overall photo appearance. Its face-slimming, skin-enhancing and hair-thickening, smoothing and recovering features intuitively alter facial appearances with basic control settings.
Version 12 of PortraitPro is four times faster than its predecessor, and incorporates a variety of other enhancements that aim to simplify the photo-editing process. The software is available in three tiers, with all editions supporting both 32- and 64-bit operation. Available for Mac and Windows operating systems, pricing for PortraitPro 12 begins at $100.
Uncovered Books app lets users select a book without cover art marketing
Uncovered Books, a new e-reader app for iPad, is offering its users the ability to not "judge a book by its cover." Aiming to assist in more unbiased book selection, Uncovered Books features a simplistic, uncluttered black and white design that focuses on word content as opposed to graphics. The app's book discovery algorithm helps readers discover authors and books otherwise not found as easily, and removes biased reviews and marketing from the selection process. Uncovered Books is free to download, with books available for purchase within the app interface.
