If this sounds familiar to still photographers, there is reason. Portraiture has been used in the professional still image industry for years for softening and enhancing skin tones.
Now the company, Imagenomic has brought the same award winning features to the video world.
According to a recent press release, Portraiture for Video is compatible with Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro, Sony Vegas Pro, and DaVinci Resolve.
Video clips are simply run through the plug-in software and it automatically removes imperfections in the skin.
The software is ideal for touching up a scar, acne or other skin blemishes and runs on Mac and Windows operating systems.

It’s designed and built with features for any of those devices, such the reason for the Universal name tag enabling it to work with virtually any operating system.
It measures 5.25-inches wide by 9.25-inches long with the cover attached and the curved keyboard is as slim as one-quarter inch, making it ideal for use while sitting on the sofa, working at your desk or tucking it away in your computer bag for travel.
While many of the mobile operating systems have similarities, they have more differences when it comes to short cuts and hot keys on keyboards. To help users switch between devices there’s a little switch on the back of the keyboard to switch between Apple, Android or Window operating systems.
The keyboard itself is built with an ergonomic curved design for a more natural typing and includes a versatile protective cover, which doubles as a stand for your tablet or smartphone.
Other features includes a rechargeable battery, which can be good for up to three months before another charge is needed

Some headphones can cost more than a car payment and very often you get an amazing product for your money. The LUXE are headphones, which don’t cost a lot ($39.99), are comfortable to wear and deliver what I call, “consistent sound.”
What I mean by that is you’re not going to get the great sound associated with $400 headphones, instead you get consistent, good sound with enough bass to keep you happy.
They look good and are built with comfortable padded ear cups over 40 mm driver speakers, an adjustable metallic looking headband and have an inline mic for handsfree calls.
The Tadpole ($19.99) is as simple as a Bluetooth speaker that can be, measuring just 2.67 x 0.43 x 1.38-inches. It’s pocket sized and comes with an attached carabiner clip.
