Though Portrait Professional Studio offers a lot when it comes to face detection, the software also finds it quite difficult to identify the jawline of the personal property which has created a few problems for some users.
However, it is quite easy to select the blue boundary and make the program accurately detect the face and the jawline, because of which it is not much of a hassle. The users have also reported issues in going for export and import of presents between the studio version and the standalone version.
However, one of the biggest problems reported by the users for this software was the anti-piracy system. The users who have the system installed on two systems usually have a problem in updating the software. Usually, the token key or the activation key that is used in one of the systems does not let the user update the second system.
This has created many hassles for the users and some users even had to go for a system restore in order to make the activation key work again. Therefore, the anti-piracy policy issues need to be taken care of. Still, if you have it installed on only one machine, you would not have any issues with the software.
Overall, Portrait Professional Studio is one of the best software that you can find around town when it comes to making great adjustments to your pictures and making sure that you have received only the best. The results that the product provides are excellent and make working on portrait photographs and easier and more wonderful experience for the photographers. As it can also be used as a plug-in, it can either become a great utility tool for your main photo editing tool or can even be used as a standalone application.
