Epson PhotoEnhance enables consumers to produce the optimum print every time by automatically adjusting the colour balance to allow for the different requirements of portraits, landscapes or groups. PhotoEnhance also includes PortraitEnhance to detect faces in the image and enhance face definition and skin radiance to ensure beautiful, natural skin tones.
 
The Stylus Photo RX690 is capable of PC-free photo printing, copying and scanning with a 2.5 inch high resolution tilt-adjustable LCD viewer for added ease of use with simple, intuitive menus offering easy viewing, selecting, copying and printing of photos without a computer.
