Verdict: Retouch4me is an AI-based software, one of the best plug-in makers designed for fast and professional editing.
A neural network automatically detects problem areas on the skin and fixes them. A huge advantage is that the original skin texture is preserved. I also like that skin isn’t blurred during your work and it doesn’t acquire an artificial look. Besides, improving pictures becomes very fast.
Every plug-in was created to work the same way as a professional retoucher improves an image. 8 years of practice and 2 years of deep research allowed Retouch4me to create automatic algorithms that give the most natural results.

This Retouch4me AI-based software works automatically. You can choose image processing quality (high or low). Using the preview, you can compare the result with the original image. It is suitable not only for skin work, but also for editing different photos, for example, jewelry photography, product photography, or sky photography. If the neural network goes overboard with defects removal, you can "put everything back in place" with a brush.
It is perfect for beginners or those with a limited budget. Also, it is good for batch Instagram tasks, editing full-length and half-height portraits shot with an open aperture. In these cases, the processing speed increases significantly.
This software is network-based for automating skin enhancement using the Dodge & Burn method, which is one of the most popular methods of how to smooth skin in Photoshop. Its main task is to smooth out problem areas of the skin, for example, nasolabial folds, bags under the eyes, small spots and irregularities on the skin of the face, as well as various highlights, shadows, and dirt in the pictures.
You can set the intensity of a D&B effect from 0 to 200. There is also a preview and comparison feature for you to track the changes made. You can adjust the saturation of the retouched areas 0 to 100, which is useful when editing separate images.
If some areas should be untouched, you can mask them with a brush. There is also a quality setting (high or low). Note that you can save the result as a neutral gray layer and use the Soft Light blend mode.
With Retouch4me AI-based software, you can get a clean, polished picture, either you are engaged in portrait or eye photography. It automatically detects the whites of the eyes and edits them, removing blood vessels and redness.
What is most important during this stage of work is that the original shape and natural color of the whites are preserved. Try doing the same yourself and see if you can achieve the same quality result.
You can save up to 10 minutes editing eyes in this program. Just imagine how long it can take to edit dozens of images. The program supports batch processing as well as preview and comparison modes.
Using this software, you can give your portrait photos a 3D look. It is the lighting that can make your photo voluminous. However, if there were problems with lighting during shooting, you can fix the defect on the editing stage.
The program adds shadows to the right places to convey the feeling of depth. Eyes will become brighter, lips and nose highlighted, and the oval of the face will be perfectly outlined.
It’s quite difficult to add volume to an image even if you are a professional, so it makes sense to rely on automatic adjustments.
