Have a picture that almost works for a social network profile, but it needs a little pep? PicTreat is a one-stop, all-or-nothing photo-retouching service that can smooth over blemishes, red eye, and more.
If you’re an accomplished Photoshop guru, you certainly won’t need PicTreat. For everyone else who has ever needed a simple touchup on a photo and needed it fast, PicTreat is a speedy solution.
There are no variables to tweak or settings to refine in PicTreat. You upload a picture, it detects where the face and the prominent features of the face are, and it does its best to remove the red eye, smooth the skin tones, and, in the case of mobile phone pictures, remove noise from the photo.
We hit Facebook and ran a bunch of profile pictures through it with a predominately positive effect. There are a couple of notable cases where it doesn’t work as expected. People with copious freckles will get nice even skin everywhere on their faces except their noses, which gives them a rather strange appearance. Also in cases where everything in the picture is already fairly good—no obvious blemishes, wrinkles, red eye, etc.—PicTreat will sometimes tweak the colour oddly. Otherwise, PicTreat delivered as promised and smoothed away blemishes, evened skin tones, and colour adjusted lighting.
PicTreat is free to use. You can sign in with MySpaceID, Facebook Connect, or sign up for a PicTreat account.
