Topaz studio image editor
Topaz Labs has announced Topaz Studio, a single editing platform that can work as a plug-in to Lightroom and Photoshop, supporting your current Topaz plug-ins. (yes, plugins for plugins)
It can also be used standalone.
Topaz Studio is a free download that comes with a set of ten adjustments (basic, blurs, brightness/contrast, colour overlay, dual tone, film grain, image layer, posterise, tone curves, vignette).
The free version also includes direct raw support, automatic lens correction, and integrated masking.
Fourteen “Pro” adjustments are also available either individually or en suite (abstraction, colour theme, focal blur, radiance, smudge, B&W, dehire, HSL, noise reduction, bloom, edge exposure, precision contrast, sharpen, and texture).
The entire 14 plug-in set is US$275 (currently US$137 at introduction), and the individual plug-ins seem to range from US$4.99 to US$29.99.
Finally, as noted above, Topaz Studio also can host your existing Topaz plug-ins
Something else I’d note about Topaz Studio: no license keys are needed and Topaz Studio can be used on up to two computers for a single user.
I’m still testing an early version of the software, but here it is after opening and dropping one of my images on to it to open.

Great news for photo editing…
Topaz is one of three sets of plug-ins that I regularly make use of, the others being Nik and MacPhun Creative Kit.
They all do things in different ways, and exploring them (writing all my reviews) has contributed greatly to my ability to look at an image and decide what I want to do to it – that’s the difficult part, the how comes later.
