Beauty Box Photo (mac)


Beauty Box Photo is a new kind of digital retouching tool. The Adobe Photoshop plugin allows you to quickly and easily erase skin blemishes and even out skin tones – achieving a consistently professional result. Beauty Box Photo uses advanced skin smoothing techniques that enhance the work of photographers at all levels.

How it works

Beauty Box is the makeup artist you thought you couldn't afford. Our Adobe Photoshop retouching plugin is simple to use. This software saves hours of your production time while making your client look years younger. Let's see how it works.

Simple & automatic workflow.

   1. Apply Beauty Box to your Photoshop layer. The Auto-Mask button will automatically run. It looks at your photo and figures out where the skin tones are.
   2. Beauty Box automatically creates a mask based on those skin tone settings. The mask decides what skin areas to smooth.
   3. You can change the Smoothing settings, if desired, to correct the skin more. By default, Beauty Box creates a subtle effect.
   4. Click OK to render the effect back into Photoshop.

In most cases, that’s it. This fast, smart smoothing especially important for photographers working under tight deadlines or with a large group of photos to correct. If you do want to make some tweaks, however, Beauty Box has plenty of smart tools for you to work with. 


Some of the practical and creative features of the Beauty Box plugin include:

  • Automatic Mask: The Auto-Mask button automatically creates an underlying mask.
  • Smart Skin Smoothing: Adjust the skin smoothing effects with three Smoothing controls.
  • Batch Processing: Let Beauty Box set the mask and smoothing automatically for batch processing hundreds of images.
  • Control Over Mask: Make changes to the mask with advanced Mask tools (though generally you won't need to!).
  • Detail Sharpening: Use fine-tuning controls to preserve important details like hair, eyelashes and jewelry.
  • Add Texture: Bring back skin texture, like pore structure, that can be lost because of the smoothing.
  • Super-Fast Processing: Beauty Box uses GPUs and nVidia’s CUDA to increase render performance.

Beauty Box Photo - User Interface

 The Auto-Mask button.

The magic button: Auto-Mask. This is where the real work happens, yet you barely have to do anything. Auto-Mask is turned on by default so when you apply Beauty Box. It runs its masking genius and figures out the skin areas to smooth, creating an editable mask along the way.

Click Analyze Frame to sample a frame and set the skin tones that will be smoothed throughout your footage. Alternately, click Analyze All to set multiple frames as the sample point. It's an automatic process that gives great results.

Skin Smoothing controls.

The Skin Smoothing controls work together to smooth over wrinkles and blemishes in your subject's skin tones. Smoothing Amount is the main control. The higher you set Amount, the more skin smoothing your subject will get.

Edit with Mask controls.

Suppose you want to edit the automatic skin smoothing mask? This is easy to do. Click the Show Mask button to see the mask you're working with. Use the Manual Mask controls to add skin color values to the mask that Beauty Box created. There are also Advanced Mask sliders to adjust the color range that is used.
