Default iCorrect Portrait (Photoshop plugin)

I was never very good at making skin tone corrections in Photoshop. I even had trouble with the "by the numbers" method that Dan Margulis covers in his books. So I started comparing my results to the iCorrect Portrait plugin results, and then trying to get my results close to that. Eventually I gave up, and just started doing most skin tone correction using iCorrect Portrait. It is also surprisingly good at removing color casts, and auto-setting black and white points. It works better than using Photoshop's "auto" feature that you find in the Levels and Curves interfaces.

Thing is, you don't always want a photo to look correct, because this can get boring. So I don't always use it. Or sometimes I only use it for comparison. But over the years I've had this, it has been one of my most-used plugins.

BTW, the newest version has a noise removal feature. I don't have the newest version, so I can't vouch for that.
