London: Fixing people’s faces in photos using the Photoshop magic is nothing new.
But you can now give a quick boost to your appearance during that photo-taking moment with the help of a camera that comes with airbrush function to whiten teeth and add makeup, reports the Daily Mail.

Electronics firm Panasonic has released its new Lumin DMC-FX77 that includes a built-in ‘Beauty Retouch’ mode, which aims to whiten teeth, put colour on your cheeks and reduce wrinkles.

The airbrushing software on the camera, which includes a 16 megapixel sensor and 3.5in TFT Touch Screen LCD display will even add makeup and smooth skin, according to the makers.

Different modes aim to do different things to portraits and pictures of your face.

Several grades of ‘face fixing’ can be applied to pictures, the more intense levels can lead to the subject of the photo being more terrifying than attractive.

Make-up mode is perhaps the most interesting.

Here, you are presented with a choice of colours and tones to apply foundation, blush and even lipstick.

The selection of colours range from subtle light brown eye shadow to a more shocking pink.

However, without yet fully testing the product, it is hard to say whether the end results can truly be seen as a real improvement.

But from pictures seen, before and after images show people being transformed into either super smooth skinned subjects with incredibly white teeth, or daubed in seemingly thick layers of makeup.

Best results are apparently achieved using Esthetic mode, which at between 60 or 80 percent with ‘head to shine removal’ applied is said to gently glam up one’s face.

The camera is essentially the European version of the Japanese Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP7.
