How are you doing this Monday afternoon?
Feeling the blues?
Don’t worry! As always, I’m here for you!
Today I have got something mind-blowing to share with you.
A one-click portrait retouching I did using AI.
This is a straight out of the camera (unedited) shot of one of my studio portrait clients:
And this is the retouched shot which I got just by a click of the mouse:
Can you believe that???
With just one click, the following things were done:
- Her skin was smoothened out
- Dodge and Burn was done to add depth to the skin
- Stray hair were removed
- Eyes were brightened
- Colors on the skin tone were balanced out
- The shadows on her face and hair were brightened
- The wrinkles on her clothes were removed
- The wrinkles on the background were removed
- The color of the background was changed in a realistic way
If I were to do this manually, it would take me at least 30 mintues.
But AI did it with one click.
But how is it possible?
Which software am I using?
I can’t disclose that right now because currently I am doing a research on 6 different AI retouching software. This will be a one-month research and after I figure out which one is the best, I will tell you the answer in my next course.
The reason why this requires a lot of research is that these AI software are VERY expensive. I’m looking to find hacks to be able to use them in a cheap manner.
I have even been emailing the people who run these companies to do a deal with them but haven’t got any replies yet. This week I will be reaching out to them on Linkedin also.
Let’s see how it pans out!
One thing is sure though – AI IS CHANGING EVERYTHING!!!
