It's Topaz Tuesday. Have Some Creative Fun!

As many of you know, Topaz Adjust from Topaz Labs is one of my favorite plug-ins. It's great for plug-in fun – as well as creative enhancements.

All these images were enhanced with the Spicify effect in Topaz Adjust.

Spicify adds: color, saturation, contrast, detail and sharpness . . . if you want.

For the picture above, I also used the Spificy effect. However, in this case I reduced the noise to the point where the picture lost sharp detail, creating a painterly effect.

For the above image, I reduced the Spicify effect after I opened the picture in Photoshop by going to Edit >Fade Filter. Topaz DeNoise and Topaz ReMask are awesome, too!

Have fun with Topaz. You can save a bundle by ordering a bundle!

Here's a Topaz tip: Always press reset before you start to work on an image. If you don't, your previous settings will be applied to your image.

Explore the light,

Shortly after reading about Topaz labs plug-ins on your blog I bought the bundle. I love Topaz labs. Plus 10% off with your coupon is awesome.

I'm a huge fan of Topaz Adjust.

I love what I've been able to do w/some of my travel pics with the Topaz plug-ins.
