I first stumbled into my relationship with Topaz by way of their edge manipulation and texture smoothing plugin, Clean (on sale through May for 50% off HERE, use “mayclean” at checkout). Normally $30, you can get it for $15 currently. I had been trying to find a way to replicate the effects of Fractalius, which is a PC only plugin. Through my exploration, I found my way to Topaz Clean, and the rest is history. (you can read my Fractalius for Mac post HERE). While not a perfect substitute, there are ways to utilize the edge manipulation in Clean to get a similar effect and because of this initial review, it began my Topaz obsession which has grown to include DeNoise, ReMask, Clarity, ReStyle, B&W Effects, Star Effects, Detail and Simplify. Come on in for a couple examples and my thoughts.
From right now through November 26th, all Topaz plugins are 50% off!!! Kind of insane actually seeing that so many of them are already so realistically priced.

Here are some of the plugins that I’ve reviewed:
I also love Adjust and would highly suggest any (or all) the Topaz plugins, especially at 50% off!!!
At first glance, Topaz Clean 3 seems like a simple, straightforward plugin. A few presets give you distinct looks which blur detail anywhere from slight to cartoony. If utilized properly, it can provide a great skin softening plugin, or an abstract, artistic pixel obliterator. Coming in at under thirty bucks, it might just be the plugin you didn’t know you were looking for.
