FaceTune

There’s an app called FaceTune that edits photos and portraits and stuff. The idea is to make your selfies look more attractive by editing out wrinkles, pimples, uneven skin tones, etc. This is an example of what FaceTune did to one of my selfies I took two years ago:

See? No more melasma.

It occurs to me that FaceTune might be good for “fixing” imperfections in missing persons’ photos. I don’t mean making the MP look more attractive, but more like removing scratches in the picture, or if the photo is discolored, making it more normal-colored. I do a little bit of this with paint.net but FaceTune might make it faster/easier to do.

What do y’all think of this idea? Carl, I’m asking you in particular, since you do a lot of forensic art things.
