    I have it. It can be a really awesome tool if you play and really get to know what it is doing.

    If you get too much in Portraiture, just reduce the opacity of the layer in photoshop.

    I've been using it for more than two years, and I like it a lot.

    Are you adding to your selection to make sure you are getting all of the skin tones? If you need more smoothing adjust more in Portraiture.

    What do you mean by adding selections? This must be where I'm going wrong..I click the dropper on the end of the nose so it excludes mouth & eyes lol geezo, I am more clueless than I thought I was! I do adjust all the settings....hmmm...

    Is the trial exactly like the purchased one? Maybe I'm not getting all the good with the trial....just wanted to make sure I liked it before I purchase it.....

    The second eye dropper is to add to the selection. You can see what is selected in the mast preview on the right hand side of the window. If it isn't encompassing all of your skin then use the second eye dropper to add to it.
    THere are presets installed in portraiture. Top left hand side.
    If they don't cut it try playing with the sliders and seeing what they do. It's hard to tell you what to do when I don't really know what you need. KWIM?

    Portraiture is great. Use masks on the portraiture layer to get it where ya need, and either opacity or brushes with varying opacities. It is a great tool, but even a hammer won't swing itself.

    It's pretty small to look at, but it looks to be really soft on the skin. Could be good, but I think she's a bit plastic.
