You must know by now, that the use of textures is my all-time favorite way to enhance my own photos. No one does it better than Topaz Labs when it comes to edit manipulation & control of your photos. Believe me, this would make a fabulous Christmas gift for anyone who enjoys taking & editing their photos, and isn’t that everyone nowadays? As with all Topaz Labs plug-ins, updates are free and webinars & tutorials are free as well. I Love this company! I am dance-around happy that my texture process is now made easy.


What is a texture effect?? I am taking a deep breath and posting my original self-portrait I use on my blog’s About page, (yep, that takes courage, for all to see) but I did it so you can see what adding a texture can do to an ordinary (SOOC) photo. Behind the scenes of the shot: The photo was shot in the bathroom, a photo of my reflection in the mirror, unfortunately capturing the glare & blue color of the lighting AND the shower curtain behind me. Oh and everything was IN focus, not hazy, wrinkles & all. Not so great, right?

What adding a texture does: The brown-toned texture creates a hazy look & adds more textural interest, hue & tonal changes. You can really see the texture on the right-hand side shower curtain of the photo. I brushed some texture off the face & arm areas. Then in Photoshop Elements 12 sharpened & whitened the eyes as an extreme focal point and added the quote. Confession: I also cloned myself thicker eyelashes : ) That’s how a simple texture addition can change a photo completely; color, mood, focus, interest.

The CONTROL of brushing out, opacity, color temperature (plus others, see above) is all done within the plug-in. Really cool border edges, light leaks and scratch/dust (tons & tons! I big puffy heart TL) are a part of the package. Not into textures? Wait, you can get the gorgeous lighting effects of Presets, all the same control, using this new plug-in! Whether your photos are taken with an expensive DSRL camera or with a smartphone, Topaz Labs plug-ins give you total control of the effects you want to create. FYI: CONTROL is a huge difference between using Topaz Labs vs smartphone editing Apps.

If you have an older computer, I would suggest a free-Trial download before purchasing Texture Effects. Because of it’s many high-resolution textures, Texture Effects does require a minimum graphics card. So if in doubt it is better to know before purchasing – the installer scans and tells you if your system is lacking. On that note, the week prior to and the week after Thanksgiving is the best time to purchase a new computer or software. Just say’in! Did you get that hint Captain?
