Portrait retouch port_2One of the new camera apps found on the Xperia T2 Ultra is called Portrait retouch, The camera app allows you to apply different styles to your portrait. You will also be able to see the changes in real time, before capturing the shot.

The app has just been ported for use with all Xperia handsets running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and above. It even works with the Xperia L and Xperia M. To install, download the zip package here and then either flash via ClockworkMod Recovery or move the files to System > App. You will need to be rooted for this to work.

    With Xperia Z is not working…

  • Danny

    Can port to nexus 4.?

  • With Xperia S the installation is aborted

  • 3rdflyleaf

    The editor works with non rooted device. -Xperia ZR

    Faz como eu cara, espera esse smart lançar e compra! ou então um Z1. O Xperia S ta velho e desatualizado (eu tenho um). Não sei como ta o seu mas o meu da mto problema de lentidão na home, navegador fecha direto… Mto velho sem suporte e bateria descarregando absurdamente rápido ;(

  • nnnn

    i want app nokia refocus or lg magic focus or samsung selective focus. background defocus not good enough. sony sould make one or atleast improve the background defocus

  • Caio Faria

    Meu amigo tem o Acro S e também reclama de lentidão e fechamentos forçados dos aplicativos.. Meu Xperia T ta indo pro mesmo caminho com o Jelly Bean 4.3

  • Jiyeon90

    Will it work on unrooted Z1?

  • Sand

    O seu T pelo menos recebeu o 4.3! e ainda vai receber alguns bug fixes. Meu S demorou 1 ano pra receber o 4.1e depois disso morreu completamente pra Sony ;(
    E sim, nossos modelos estão ultrapassados, a geração de processadores do T, V ainda é superior ao S, Acro. Mas acho que essa geração nova Quad-Core (Snapdragon 400, 600 e 800) dá conta do recado muito bem! E além do mais, esses novos smarts da Sony virão com telas muuuito superiores tanto em cores, visão quanto em consumo de bateria, olha o Z1 Compact, Z2, T2 Ultra, todos com telas melhores!:D

    go on any product u like the most, that’s not a big problem.
    I even often see most dev of others trying to port app from Sony, like walkman, album…
    go & if u come back, I will laught at u.

  • 3rdflyleaf

    He’s just talking about ONE app. Not the whole brand. And I agree with him, Sony needs to improve the background defocus. Refocus apps from other are better.
    I also agree with you that Sony’s apps are great.

  • Caio Faria

    Verdade, o desempenho do T ainda é muito bom em relação ao S, o sistema ainda é fluido e os apps são bem executados, mas já se percebe que está defasado. A tela acho a do S superior, o T tem o branco muito forte e as cores não são tão vívidas. Mas o Z2 realmente impressiona, espero poder comprar ou esperar pela próxima geração. (Imagino que o T consiga dar conta do recado até la! KKKK)

  • Sand

    Boa sorte amigo ;D
    Na próxima eu vou ou de T2 Ultra ou de Z1 dependendo dos preços aqui kkkkk

  • jrn

    does work on my Z ! :-)

  • Timbo1

    hopefully someone will make an apk that does not require root

  • Sherkhan

    unrooted z1???

  • afzal zainal

    I agree with u… Sony need to include manual focus control option . Touch to focus seem ok , but not good enough… It still takes time to focus.

  • Legend

    The girl in the pic, that’s what Korean Chicks do… just look at their so-called girl band groups… in other words facial makeover!

    on my Z 4.3 unrooted is force closed, how u make it works?
    please reply…

  • Z_owner

    working for me. don’t flash the zipped file. push the apk to the system folder and change permission.

  • Arull Izzy

    any solution for unrooted device?

  • The .zip file contains two apps.
    One is the camera app, the other is the photo editor. The photo editor works (though the text overlaps with the navigation bar which looks really odd). The camera app can be installed but it crashes upon launch.

  • z

    the port only works for rooted devices. read the post again.

  • Arull Izzy

    yeah i see… but i’ve been read on xda, it can be installed with no root required, they’re said just install both of apk as normal app…
    maybe you know how to do that brother… :-D

    Very interesting thing I just come across at MyDeals247.com – I could choose any number of jewellery items (from the list) at very heavy discount rates (up to 75% off online) – more we buy more discount – I never seen this before.

    I know this post is old, but did u get the portrait retouch app without rooting the device? I have a xperia z1, is it possible? if yes, do reply back
