If you are in to photo retouching than Perfect365 is a makeover app that should not miss from your Windows 10 device. Although not a substitute for other, more complex editing programs, such as Adobe Photoshop, Perfect365 offers some pretty neat features for those who want to make a quick change to their photo and add some makeup or just make it look better.
Although not entirely realistic, with a bit of time, the app can achieve some pretty convincing results, but it depends on your imagination and your patience to search for the perfect combination of make-overs.
Perfect365 is a makeover app for Windows 10
You should know right from the start that Perfect365 is currently unavailable in Microsoft Store and we have contacted the support team for more information. However, if you installed it on your machine before, you can still use it today, but there is no support at the moment for the desktop version. If you’re looking to download a makeover app alternative, then jump straight to the end of this post to see our recommendations.
Although pretty basic in comparison to its desktop counterpart, which can modify multiple faces at once and save high-resolution photos, this app can handle only one face at a time (photos with multiple faces are not supported in the app) and it cannot save photos over 1MP in quality.
However, despite these drawbacks, the app works pretty well, allowing some modifications that can drastically change one’s appearance.
After testing the app I noticed that it tends to work best on high-quality photos that are taken directly from the face of the subject, so those pictures in a mirror will not suffice. But if you have some quality photos of yourself, you can load them into the app and start modifying.
The process itself is very straightforward: after loading a photo, you will have to set the margins of the face (eyes, nose, mouth, and cheeks) and from there on, you can start making your makeover by adding certain features. You can slim the face, blur the skin, add makeup or change the color of the eyes and other features.
The final result can be saved as a jpeg photo or added to your favorites. Also, the app comes preloaded with some faces that you can test and learn on, so you can get a sense of how the app works.
At any point of your makeover, you can see the before and after pictures to better grasp each change to the photo, and when you make a modification, it will show in real-time on the photo. This will facilitate the process of adding skin tones and other elements that must be adjusted slightly.
I can’t say how much practical use this app will have for those wanting a more professional-looking result, mostly because there is little support for improvisation. The modifications are pre-configured and you can only change some styles and colors, but that’s about all. I would say that this tool is good for those who want to learn something about photo manipulation, and as a starting point, I think it’s great!
2017 Update – Perfect365 app gets better
The app was a success since its release. Many positive user reviews have boosted its popularity and “life-term”. Now, Perfect365 is at 2.0.o.15 version. This last update brought some important changes :
- New snapview mode
- New eyebrow enhancement tool added
- Support for printing
- Bug fixes
You can use it on Windows 10, 8 devices without any problem. It is supported for both platforms and I hope it’ll be supported even for next version of Windows.
2018 Update: App currently unavailable on Microsoft Store
As we mentioned at the beginning of this post, the app is only available on mobile devices – Android and iOS – and you can download it from the official website.
The creators decided to develop a more handy app that you can carry along and use on the go. There is also a version for make-up artists available, with more exciting features.
Microsoft Store does not lack a makeover app and we found one very useful app to give that perfect retouch to your photos. Makeover app is a photo editing application that allows for nearly 1000 color cosmetics shades (lipsticks, eyeshadows, etc.) to be applied to your image in a click time. If you’re interested, you can download it for free straight away.
