Utilizing a few advanced and extremely helpful scripts, this extension panel will also save you hours of work as well as help you achieve accurate, repeatable, top-quality results.



Surveying our users showed that the vast majority did not use the tool buttons, so we moved them to the top of Pixel Juggler (our free panel) to clear up some space for the new features on Beauty Retouch v3.0.


The key skin retouching techniques in beauty photography - Dodge & Burn and Frequency Separation - aren't easy to master, but this section of the panel can help you simplify and quicken their setups. If you're not sure how these techniques work, we've included a helpful video tutorial. Understanding these techniques thoroughly is the first step toward mastering them, so make sure to check out our premium video course Master Dodge & Burn with Fashion, Beauty & Portrait Photographer and Retoucher Michael Woloszynowicz,

We have added a full row of Luminosity Masking buttons, be sure to check out this overview video to see what you can do with this new exciting feature (Luminosity Masking starts at 4:26min).


After the skin is cleaned up, it's time to beautify the rest of the face: add vitality to the eyes, brighten up the smile, remove facial hair, and even out skin tones with the Magical Skin Tone script. We have update it, and it's simpler and more effective now!


Now you can even add your Custom Actions to the panel! Check out the instructions on how to set them up further in this manual. And before you finish your retouch and submit it to your client, make sure to use these handy Quality Control procedures; they're great for catching issues tough to identify any other way. Plus, if you're like us and use the same handful of Adjustment layers in your workflow frequently, we've thrown in a few quick-access buttons at the bottom of the panel just for you.
