Anthropics Technology launches PortraitPro 17 with new background editing tools, Snapshots and more.

London, UK, October 11, 2017 Anthropics Technology Ltd has today announced the launch of PortraitPro 17 - the latest release of their intuitive portrait retouching software. With new tools such as Background Editing, Snapshots, advanced Preset controls, and Vignette, PortraitPro 17 looks set to be the most popular version to date. With over 600,000 users, PortraitPro is changing the way photographers, both professional and amateur, approach portrait retouching.

PortraitPro 17 offers a host of advancements to bring professional retouching within reach of all photographers, regardless of previous experience. From natural skin-smoothing tools to realistic digital makeup and lighting, the software uses cutting edge technology to take the hard work out of post-processing.

“Background editing and Snapshots are things we’ve been working towards for a while,” said CEO Andrew Berend. “It’s really exciting to finally see them in the hands of our users.”

Background Editing

For the first time ever, you can now edit your subject and your background without leaving PortraitPro. Choose from four different styles including a New Image option for inserting your own background.


Be more adventurous with your editing. Snapshots let you save your progress so you can try something different and easily revert back if you change your mind.

Advanced Preset Controls

Every photographer has their own style and your photo-editing software should be the same. Create custom presets using your favorite tools and you can edit your images with just a few clicks. Build your own makeup looks or even just save your favorite skin smoothing settings to use time and time again.

Photographers using PortraitPro Studio Max with automatic batch processing can use custom presets to make batch editing even easier. Save hours of manual work, just create a preset based on a single image and apply this to every image in a batch.


PortraitPro 17 gives you more photo-editing tools in one place. For the first time, create classic portraits with the new vignette tool.
