Balancing a bustling career with her responsibilities as a mother, she values efficiency without compromise on quality. “What used to take me hours is now accomplished in a fraction of the time,” she notes, highlighting how Imagen’s ability to analyze and enhance photos with remarkable personalized precision and consistency has redefined productivity in her professional life.

The Smooth Skin AI Tool: A Game-Changer

When first introduced to the Smooth Skin tool, Ashley admits to skepticism, unsure of how it would perform across multiple photos. Her initial doubts were quickly dispelled: “I was blown away by how good the technology is.” This feature stands out for its ability to deliver quality skin smoothing at scale, transforming the retouching process into a more efficient and controlled experience.

“I love that it allows me to adjust masks after the application depending on the clients’ base skin and how it speeds up the retouching time while still giving me control,” Ashley says. This flexibility is crucial for maintaining the subjects’ natural beauty, a core principle in Ashley’s work and a common value among photographers dedicated to authenticity.

The Smooth Skin tool supports this balance, offering adjustable settings to cater to individual client needs.

Feedback from clients have remained overwhelmingly positive, “The best part is that it very much so mimics my extensive work but allows me to get my retouching done faster,” Ashley shares, confirming the tool’s success in enhancing her workflow without compromising the quality or authenticity of her work.
