Digital Anarchy Beauty Box Photo for Photoshop

Extreme makeover for every skin type.

Digital Anarchy Beauty Box Photo for Photoshop offers automatic retouching that allows batch processing and simplifies beauty work.

Apply Digital Makeup to your photos! Beauty Box Photo allows you to quickly and easily erase skin blemishes and wrinkles, even out skin tones, and reduce shine – achieving a consistently professional result. The plugin uses advanced skin smoothing techniques that enhance the work of photographers at all levels in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.

Lose 10 years in 1 minute

Beauty Box Photo is the makeup artist you thought you couldn’t afford. Our skin retouching plugin for Adobe Photoshop and Aperture is simple to use. This skin smoothing software saves hours of your production time while making your client look years younger. In addition, the 30+ new presets let’s you apply different color styles and looks to your images. Let’s see how the plugin works.

A simple & automatic workflow

  1. Apply Beauty Box to your Photoshop layer or Aperture photo.
  2. The Auto-Mask button will automatically run. Beauty Box looks at your photo and figures out where the skin tones are. The algorithm to do this is brand new and does a great job of accurately selecting skin tones.
  3. Our Digital Makeup technology then applies very smart smoothing to just the skin ares, reducing imperfections while keeping the skin texture.
  4. Click OK to render the automatic results back into Photoshop or Aperture.

In most cases, that’s it. This fast, smart skin smoothing is especially important for photographers working under tight deadlines. Of course, Beauty Box has simple, smart tools for tweaking the effect or adding color styles to get the exact look you want. You can also use it as part of a batch process to retouch hundreds of photos an hour. This is great for labs processing thousands of photos that need a beauty pass but don’t require complex retouching.

Apply Digital Makeup for a photo makeover after the shoot

The Beauty Box skin retouching plugin provides photographers and digital artists with an easy and powerful way of smoothing out skin and removing blemishes using Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. Whether the software is used for a glamour shoot, senior portraits or just a personal photo, Beauty Box Photo achieves a consistently professional result.

Great features of the Beauty Box Photo plugin

Some of the practical and creative features of the Beauty Box Photo plugin include:

  • Increased Speed: Beauty Box is up to 600% faster. By using OpenCL, Beauty Box Photo is super fast on both AMD and Nvidia graphics cards.
  • Automatic Mask: The Auto-Mask button automatically creates an underlying mask. This is brand new in 3.0 and does an amazing job of accurately selecting skin tones.
  • Smart Skin Smoothing: Adjust the skin smoothing effects with three Smoothing controls. This uses sophisticated algorithms for smoothing the skin areas while retaining the skin texture.
  • Shine Reduction: This slider lets you reduce the hot spots caused by bright lights on shiny/sweaty skin.
  • 30+ Preset Styles: Add a variety of color effects on top of the basic retouching to give your photo a glamour, fashion, or dark and evil look.
  • Batch Processing: Let Beauty Box set the mask and smoothing automatically for batch processing. With the new speed increase, you can retouch up to 900 12mp images an hour. Great for labs or high volume photographers.
  • Control Over Mask: Make changes to the mask with advanced Mask tools (though generally you won’t need to!).
  • Detail Sharpening: Use fine-tuning controls to preserve important details like hair, eyelashes and jewelry.
  • Add Texture: Bring back skin texture like pore structure that can be lost because of the smoothing.

Very simple and easy to use but a bit pricy

If you want nice looking still images and don't have someone who's gifted with Photoshop working on your materials, then Beauty Box could easily be a lifesaver (as well as a time saver). However, if you have someone who can put their passion into it, it's going to look more unique. The hard work always shows through. (Remember what you put out is your legacy, "film is forever, pain is only temporary". Enough of my artistic philosophy. . .)

Whatever my artistic views on Beauty Box Photo, it does what it was made to do. However, what may be a great plugin for the high volume local photographer is not as useful or productive for most microbudget filmmakers. (Again, Beauty Box for AE is a whole different story.)
