If you have a photography subscription in Adobe with access to the latest Lightroom and Photoshop, is Portraiture still a good investment or can you see the same results with similar efforts in Lightroom and or Photoshop?
Update. In hindsight, perhaps my question was a little vague or left open to the wrong interpretation. More specifically. Photoshop has neural filters for skin smoothing, they also have liquify which detects individual facial features. Light room also identifies faces and individual features and creates masks for those areas, allowing you to retouch them with one click using AI. I've used portraiture in the past and enjoyed the results. It's easy to go overboard, but also it produces a result in a separate layer which you can then modify, mask and adjust the opacity.
Given the automated AI portrait retouching capability now included in Photoshop and Lightroom, Is portraiture 4.0 a waste of money because it seems all of its features are already included in PS and LR in some form or another?
