So its no secret to anyone who actually reads this blog that I am a huge fan of Topaz Adjust, a plugin filter for PS CS4 or Elements so when I heard there was a new filter by Topaz available I rushed over to download the demo and play with it.
Topaz Detail is the new plugin, it may at first appear to be similar to Adjust but I learned quickly its not. It concentrates more on the creative details, the accents and the sharpness but doesn’t add noise, always a plus.
Here is an example of what it can do:
Original Image – It’s okay but nothing fancy to make it stand out.
Topaz Details w/Feature Enhancement Setting and minor adjustments
Topaz Details w/Creative Detail Accent Setting and minor adjustments
So there you go, same photo three looks but there are additional settings to get even more looks out of the original, I just haven’t played with them all. I also understand it does really good B/W conversions, based on a few reviews I have read. I may try that next.
Topaz Detail is available for a free 30 day trial in both MAC and WIN platforms and if you buy it before August 31st you can use the coupon code SODETAILED (allcaps, no spaces) and pay just $19.99 instead of the regular $39.99. Oh yea here is the link to the website. Topaz Detail
and no I don’t get any money for this blog post, just wanted to share. Hope you have fun with it
