This will be a some what Schizophrenic review:
I have used the software since version 10 and it has preformed great most of the time. I had problems with version 10 and the tech support was less than helpful. The problems were fixed in version 11. Version 12 has had no problems. The program is easy to use and the results are impressive. I am using the 64 bit version on a Mac Pro. The only issue is the automatic face recognition. It does not always work. Once I turned it off and sit up the photo manually the program worked fine.

Now comes the second half of the review. The program is fine but the company organization is less than helpful. Trying to get questions answered or even to sign into their forum is a nightmare. The company is not customer friendly.

This is my problem. The software is great and if you never need assistance you will be fine. If something goes wrong or if you need a simple question answered the crap storm starts. I just tried to sign into the forum and the error message told me my main eMail address was not valid. The only other company that was worse was called BIAS and they are no longer in business.

I wish MacUpdate had separate ratings for the software and the company. The software gets a 5 and the company gets a 0. I am going to rate the software at 4.5 since it works great but I don't know what to do about company. I always ask if the product is worth the crap you have to put up with to use it. In Adobe's and BIAS's case the answer was no. With Portrait Professional the jury is still out.

Check for update in Portrait professional 10.8.2 running on my Mac stated that the ;attest version is 10.8.2

And on the developer's site, there is no 10.9.3?

So where on earth I can update my paid version 10.8.2 to 10.9.3?

Paid for the upgrade a few days ago, received a gibberish of an email with no NON-trial version download link. This is, by the way, the only "software" I know of - that has no trial version activation property. That's unique - be prudent, developers, not to take my statement for a compliment - because it's not!

For me, it's either "You're going to provide me a proper NON-trial version" download link, or "Please, do see to it that the money I squandered on your effort (to send me a template email with no useful contents, is transferred back to my PayPal account", simple!

Perfect app. The only flaw: The UI is cluttered with sliders - a tribute to the feature richness. A search-option with live hit-list would make it much easier to find the right one. Beside this it is a must-have app for all portrait-pros. Guess you can do everything with Photoshop but I guarantee, you going to need much more time. The so called face-detection does not recognize anything at all by itself !!!, but you need only a few clicks for getting perfect Alpha-masks for all relevant face-parts. Applying Filters or morph the face is a pleasure. You will never miss a real auto-detection.

This is not a review but a comment and question.
I downloaded and installed the program and find it useful. My problem is the hoops you have to jump through to get it registered. The scheme seems worse than BIAS and Adobe put together. I have avoided all software that dump this kind of scheme on users. You have to sign up, register just to have questions answered about program use. I have passed the program up before but the price has been dropped so I am considering it now.

My question is to any one who has used this program is putting up with the developers crap worth it. What I was able to do with the demo was impressive.

I have a Mac Pro and a Mac Book Pro and want to know if I can run the program on both machines. I travel and process my files with the MacBook Pro when traveling. I was unable to get this information unless I register. Basic information should be available with out jumping through hoops.

My initial impression is to stay away from this company.
