Now FaceFilter3 is available for both Windows PC and Mac. FaceFilter3 is a leading photo retouching software that incorporates real-life makeup theory and techniques into its extensive selection of multi-purpose beauty tools. 

FaceFilter3 is an essential tool for everyone from the image editing professional to the social media diva.  The simple and easy-to-learn interface allows even those completely unfamiliar with photo re-touching to feel like a pro within minutes!  New users can choose from a selection of hundreds of facial makeup and morph templates and see their facial photos transform to suit any scenario.  Furthermore, DSLR effects and various photo filters give anyone from the amateur photographer to the photo retouching professional all the tools they need to make any photo into a stunning masterpiece. 

Professional Makeup Theory Integrated into the Ultimate Photo Beautifying Solution

“Reallusion is the first company to provide a photo beauty solution that provides all levels of users with the ability to easily transform their images in any number of ways to achieve absolutely any look imaginable.  We’ve collaborated with professional cosmetic artists to incorporate real-world cosmetic logic into our tool design,” said Charles Chen, CEO of Reallusion. “FaceFilter3 utilizes our advanced muscle-level and facial analysis technology, which has been used with other Reallusion products as well as licensed to brand name camera manufacturers. “

The template-based system allows users to quickly and easily apply extremely detailed and natural looking makeup styles for each specific facial feature, then customize and save them for future use.  The ability to selectively morph and adjust individual facial features allows for precise facial enhancement and subtle changes in expression.

Those more experienced with photo re-touching such as image editing professionals can take advantage of fully customizable makeup layers for skin enhancement, highlights and contours and a whole world of eye makeup options.  They can then save these custom templates for quick one-click application on future projects as well. 

FaceFilter3 is a versatile photo retouching and beautifying toolkit that allows you to cover blemishes, customize makeup, refine facial features, and apply DSLR effects..
Give a Professional Look and Upgrade Your Photo with DSLR and Post Effects

One thing that makes FaceFilter3 unique is the inclusion of creative lens filters and DSLR effects that can be applied to any image.  Define the background and foreground of your image with masking, and then choose different levels of focus in different patterns such as circular or gradient to give your image a depth-of-field effect like it was taken with a professional DSLR camera.  Foreground and background can be edited separately and given different colors and other image properties as well. 

There is also a bokeh feature which allows you to be creative with your blur effects.  Choose from a number of distinctive bokeh shapes ranging from hearts to musical notes, and add that subtle finishing touch to your photo.  The lens filter effects within FaceFilter3 include various Lomo, vignette and image tone templates that are fully customizable so you can have full creative control over the final look of your photo.

New and innovative skin-smoothing system that easily and quickly evens out skin by clearing away blemishes, wrinkles, and discoloration.  Specific templates are easily applied to address the initial problem, and further editing and tweaking can be performed with more specific tools. 

  • Detailed Skin and Hair Textures. Ultra-realistic looking eyebrows and eyelashes contain visual detail down to each follicle, allowing them to blend in naturally with the rest of the face, while a diverse selection of skin textures can be modified in a variety of ways to suit the particular skin texture of your model and prevent the “washed out” look that is prevalent in other photo retouching software.

  • Highlights & Contours. Flexible highlight/contour layers along with masking tools allow users to add definition to facial features in addition to bringing in further custom layers for a more pronounced effect.

  • Adjust Facial Shape. Facial image fitting allows for a whole new level of freedom for facial adjustment, with the ability to adjust every facial detail from overall facial proportion to the shape, position, and size of individual facial features.

  • Facial Expression Enhancement. Muscle-based facial adjustment facilitates the ability to totally remodel any facial expression, or simply perform subtle adjustments and tweaks to the current expression.
