How to Facetune (properly)
Facetune has become one of the most commonly used photo editing tools that is designed to help edit your portraits to perfection. With Facetune, you are able to blur your blemishes, adjust the size of your facial features to make them smaller or bigger, reshape your face, and more. The app is useful but it can be easy to go overboard with editing your portrait, making it obvious to anyone viewing the photo. Here are some tips designed to help you edit the perfect portrait without being too obvious.
Utilize the patch tool before smoothing the face
A fan favorite feature of the Factune app is the smoothing effect. The tool is designed to soften out the skin and give the effect of smoother looking skin. The patch feature is a less popular, but equally important tool. With the patch tool, you are able to not only remove blemishes and wrinkles, but the feature also allows you to add hair and more. Using this tool before the smoothing effect is a sure way to perfect your photo without it being obvious to the naked eye.
For a subject with discoloration, the tones tool is your new BFF.
The patch tool and smoothing effect work well for small blemishes and wrinkles, but for a subject with severe acne or discoloration the tones tool is the perfect solution. The tones tool is ideal. The feature allows you to choose a color by holding down your finger, and from there you can layer the pigmentation to your liking until the blemish is removed while still looking natural and effortless.
The Defocus Effect
The defocus effect allows you to adjust the focus in your portrait. Utilizing this tool will help to blur or focus on specific areas of the photo, providing an effect similar to one you would receive with an expensive lens on a professional camera. Adding depth to a portrait will seriously elevate the quality of the photos that you are producing.
