I remember the very first BCC. Yes, I am dating myself, but I was a toddler when I started using it. (Stop snickering) Boris has come a long way since then and this latest release shows that in grand fashion. When Ross Shain contacted me about doing a review, I leapt at the chance. In fact, I just received it today and installed it immediately. My next step was to put some of the fantastic tools to work “post” haste (pardon the pun) on my newest series, “The Weekend Warrior”. The first two features that I used included the Beauty Studio and Remover.  Smooth and accurate and a wonder to behold they integrated into so well that you can’t tell that I used them. That, my friends, is exactly what makes Boris so great. The tools work so well that if I didn’t tell you, you wouldn’t know.

I can’t wait to write up the hands on review on the rest of the fab features.
