Beauty Box Photo App: Instant Digital Makeup for Portraits

Beauty Box Photo App

Our friends at Digital Anarchy recently turned us on to their new Beauty Box Photo app for iPhone and iPad. We’ve long been fans of their arsenal of plug-ins for Photoshop, Premiere and Final Cut, so when we heard they had a free app, we had to check it out!

If you’re looking for a great app for touching up portraits on-the-go, check out Beauty Box Photo. It features many of the powerful effects found in their Beauty Box plug-in for Photoshop, but in the palm of your hand (and it’s free!).

Just select one of the 37 presets, and the Digital Makeup technology automatically identifies skin tones, lighting and coloration to apply the level of smoothing you request and beautifies your photo. Some presets are more subtle and natural while others can get pretty creative.

If you enjoy the app, remember this is just a taste of what can be done with Beauty Box. For photographers there’s a Photoshop and Aperture version and if you do video, it’s available for Adobe, Apple, Avid, and Sony video editing applications, allowing you do to automatic retouching on video. (The video plug-in is used by NBC, Universal Music, E! Entertainment, Home Shopping Network and many others!)
