We’ve covered several image editing application before, like BatchPhoto Home, Corel PaintShop Pro, Paintslate, Arcsoft PhotoStudio 6, Archipelis Designer and Pixo SE. Today, we’ll be taking a look at another one-click photo manipulation software by Arcsoft — Perfect365.
Perfect 365 is a simple-to-use application that takes regular photos of yourself and instantly transforms it into a professional makeover. If you’re a female reader, you’d want to click through to read all about it. Plus, we’re giving away 10 copies of the full version of Perfect365 worth $299 in total! But first, a walkthrough.
Simply put, Perfect365 is nothing more than a powerful photo manipulation application that takes your regular self-portraits and turn them into something impressive that’s worth sharing or posting up on your Facebook profile.
Perfect365 is commonly mistaken as a free Windows/Mac application when it fact, the free version (which is available from Arcsoft) can only save a 600×600 copy of your image. To save your image in its full, native resolution, the full version has to be unlocked by purchasing a $29.95 license. In the meantime, you can download the free version and give it a try. Or you can also the web version here. Perfect365 is also available as a $1.99 iOS application designed for the iPhone — get it here.
On initial launch, Perfect365 will prompt you to open a photo. Pick any photo that you’d like to work on and Perfect365 will identify and process the image, and finally present it in the main interface.
On the left, you’ll have a selection of one-click transformations that you can apply.
They all have very subtle differences so you’ll have to pay close attention to detail. The effect is implemented almost instantly and is non-destructive, so you’ll be able to preview it while preserving the original image.
In the panel on the right, you’re presented with a myriad of options which you can enable or disable even after you’ve selected an instant transformation in order to fine-tune your makeover. There are a couple of really useful tweaks here. For example, there are options to slim your face, lift your cheeks and enhance your nose. Remember, these are effects that are usually done by professionals in Photoshop but you can now do it with just a click of a button. It’s really that simple.
If your makeovers aren’t turning out the way you were hoping, then it would be a good idea to adjust the key points. These points identify the position of the eyes, nose, lips, chin and sides of the face. Perfect365 does a pretty good job of estimating these points but you have total control over their positions.
When you’re done, it’s time to save your makeover. As previously mentioned, the free version can only save a 600×600 copy of the image. In order to save the image in its full resolution, a license is required. If you happen to win a copy from our giveaway, here is what you’ll need to do.

Perfect365 is really easy to use and is a great way to enhance your photos before sharing them with family and friends. Even my fiancée (the girl in the photos) saw these screenshots and said that she doesn’t remember wearing any makeup in these photos. She sure was fooled — the photos looked convincing.
