We've gotten used to the perfection of digital photography, but there was a time when photos had dust, scratches, stains and other imperfections that could easily ruin them.

Luckily you can now fix those imperfections with Retouch Pilot Lite, a really simple photo retouching tool that doesn't require any designing or editing skills and can therefore be used by anybody. This Lite version doesn't include the Smart Patch tool available in the trial, but other than that it's a perfectly working tool with which you can easily restore old photos.

That said, bear in mind that Retouch Pilot Lite works best with small flaws such as light scratches, spots and the likes. The more serious the defect is, the harder it'll be to fix it without leaving any trace. Also, I missed having a color picker when using the concealer; it was hard to choose the exact color to paint over certain artifacts in the photo to make them disappear.

Generally speaking, I found Retouch Pilot Lite to be a great retouching tool for newbies, and especially useful to remove small flaws from pictures without having to learn how to use Photoshop or any other mammoth-sized editor.

Retouch Pilot Lite is the perfect tool for a quick photo retouch to fix small spots. More serious imperfections definitely need more editing skills and a more professional tool as well.

Retouch Pilot supports the following formats

JPG, TIFF, PNG, BMP

Retouch Pilot is photo retouching software that was designed for removing imperfections from a photo. It allows you to remove small technical imperfections - scratches, spots from dust particles and hair, etc. - that were found in the original image or that appeared while scanning the photo.

You'll also be able to restore scanned old photos. Retouch Pilot allows you to remove any defects arising from long-term storage of a still picture: fixer stains, scratches and worn spots. With Retouch Pilot your old photos will get a new life!
