As its name suggests, SoftOrbis Photo Retoucher helps you improve pictures. This tool can remove imperfections and undesired elements from your photographs. Likewise, it can adjust such image parameters as light and contrast, both manually and automatically. Other available editing operations include resizing, cropping and rotating pictures. Luckily, the application supports most common graphic file types.

The program has a simple workflow, which is based on choosing a tool, selecting the desired area, adjusting parameters and applying changes. The application has various of these tools. Special attention is deserved by the Remove tool, which uses content-filling algorithms to imitate the background behind an extracted object, such as watermarks, data stamps and even any unattractive element in the landscape. Spot Remover, in turn, can eliminate small imperfections, like stains and dust, as well as conceal some skin imperfections, such as freckles, dots, warts and pimples. There is also Scratch Remover, with an obvious name, and the Concealer Brush, intended to mask unwanted details by changing their brightness and color. Clone Stamp is another tool, which can replicate parts of the picture on another. Finally, there is also a tool to convert the picture into a sketch.

In general, SoftOrbis Photo Retoucher has the main advantage of being easier to use and less expensive than other applications. However, compared to those, this one has also less sophisticated features. In spite of that, I have to admit that the program works as expected, except for the Undo command, which failed to do its job several times.
