Yeah , great plugin,.... I don't use it for noise reduction though... I have Noiseware pro which has amazing capabilities

Its hard not to process everything through Topaz for me, it looks so good!

To me anyway

have fun..:)

All processed with Topaz Adjust 4

I downloaded Topaz Adjust trial and am very impressed by it, too. I can see it especially useful for my wife's pp as her p&s P90 does not take RAW pictures and she doesn't use a tripod when bracketing shots for later HDR so sometimes one or two images have camera-shake. Topaz Adjust can come in to the rescue.

Anyway, here are some single-JPEGs I took in New York City within the past week. I used Topaz Adjust’s "Psychedelic" preset in all.



#3) I think I used "Dramatic" preset on this one, not "Psychedelic" like on all the others.

#4) I used Topaz Denoise (trial) to smoothen the sky.

Thanks! Topaz is great. I'm excited to try also their other programs.

Your pics are great, too. I've been looking at them hoping to learn how to achieve a "cleaner" look on my pics.

The best thing Topaz has is the Denoize 4.1

My wife and I also like Remask and Adjust. We think Adjust is perfect for my wife's p&s. Photo of deer below was relatively poor quality because it was raining and my wife took it from inside the car. Adjust and Remask we think made a good recovery of it.

#1) Original JPG image from camera.

#2) Edited with (a) Topaz Adjust using "small detail" preset, (b) Topaz Remask to separate the deer so we can darken the background and make the deer stand out a little more, (c) Photoshop Elements to introduce vignette and circular Gaussian blur to further bring focus on the deer at center, and (d) Topaz Denoise to reduce camera-shake blur.
