Big Picture

Digital Anarchy’s new Beauty Box Photo skin retouching software is a plug-in designed to provide an automatic and easy way of smoothing skin and removing blemishes in photographs. The plug-in performs fast, automatic skin retouching and smoothing, automatically identifying skin tones and creating an intelligent mask that limits the smoothing effect to skin areas while keeping facial details razor sharp. This process requires minimal input from the user and, in many cases, is fully automatic, the company says.

Beauty Box features include: automatic mask; smart skin smoothing with three controls; batch processing; advanced mask control; detail sharpening; and bring-back skin texturing (such as pore structure), which can be lost during smoothing.

Price: $99. Beauty Box Photo 1.0 is fully compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS5 and earlier versions of Photoshop and Elements.
