It’s that time of year. Lights are strung, holiday music plays on loop, egg nog flows and consumerism kicks into overdrive. Well, one great benefit to this is that there are truly many great deals to take advantage of on things we actually use, or can actually use. Topaz Labs is offering its entire suite of plugins for 75% off (over $1,000.00 worth of plugins) for $249.99 this week. As has been showcased on the blog here over the years, I’m particularly partial to ReMask, Clarity and DeNoise. Three plugins (of 17 total) I find to be absolutely indispensable. Glow is a wonderful artsy plugin, and speaking of, Impression is a spectacular art media conversion software creating digital paintings from your image files with a few clicks. Adjust, Detail, Simplify, ReStyle, Texture Effects, etc, etc, etc. All a lot of fun, creatively and commercially useful to boot. I’ve already used Clarity and DeNoise today to finish off some files for large prints that will be gifts, so, there’s still time for that as well before we end up having to panic shop.

Use code BLACKFRIDAY17 to get 75% off through November 28th.
Happy holiday season to all, and may we all make it through unscathed.
All the best,
I’m sure you’re getting sick of seeing me ramble on about Topaz plugins, so let’s try something new here… My friend and fairly frequent contributor, Billy Burg has shared with us, some of his results using a couple of his favorite Topaz plugins and insight into his process.
It so happens that Topaz is running a couple of pretty substantial sales right now as well. As mentioned last week, Glow and Impression are available individually for 25% off by using the code “TOPAZART” via Topaz Labs HERE, which runs through the end of May, but now Topaz has decided to go full bore and offer the complete collection, yes all 17 products, for 40% off (normally $499, now $299) using the code “SPRINGSUMMER2016” at checkout via Topaz’ website HERE!
Now, here’s another cool tidbit for those of us who’ve already invested in various plugins, if you sign in at Topaz Labs with the email address/account you created to download software, your account will automatically deduct the plugins you’ve already purchased from the complete collection price, and using that same SPRINGSUMMER2016 code, you can get the remaining plugins for 40% off! Of course, you can always download full, free trials via the link above too, and give any or all of these killer plugins a try before deciding to buy or not. This sale runs through Sunday May 22nd, so you have a couple of weeks to try them out and decide.
Come on in to see more of Billy’s befores and afters.
Topaz has just released a brand new plugin which aims to put another major artistic tool in your quiver. On sale through December as an introductory promotion, Click HERE to download a free trial or to purchase, and follow along.
Want to see more? C’mon in and let me introduce you to this cool, new plugin…
A couple super deals have popped up. Please excuse the quick break from the normally scheduled programing… For my fellow micro 4/3 shooters, the above lens is temporarily on sale, and for all my fellow post processing enthusiasts, Topaz Re-Style is 50% off for just 4 more days.
The Bower (Rokinon/Samyang/whoever else they sell this lens under) micro 4/3, 7.5mm f/3.5 Fisheye, is now on sale for $
199 at B&H HERE (price is now fluctuating between $200-250 or so), and also includes the 4% reward and Free Shipping! If you’ve been on the fence, this is an amazing deal on a great lens (Normally about $300). You can read my opinions on the Rokinon version (same lens) HERE. Oddly, it is only the Bower version that is on sale, but it is the same lens as the Rokinon that I own, use and love.
Also, Topaz Re-Style is about to wrap up it’s introductory sale this Saturday, at which point it will go up to “full” price ($59.99). Right now, through Saturday, you can get Re-Style for 50% off HERE for $29.99 when using the code “restyleit”, enter the discount code at checkout. I recently reviewed Re-Style HERE. Also, you can get the $30 discount off of the full collection of Topaz plugins by using that same “restyleit” discount code.
Thank you, happy shooting and carry on…
Topaz continues to kick out awesome plugins, and their newest release ReStyle keeps with the recent pattern. Like most Topaz Plugins, us early adopters get a substantial discount which they offer as soon as the software is released. Read on for my take and a few examples, or if you’re already sold, go here to TopazLabs.com and use the code “restyleit” to get 50% off ($59.99 reg, or $29.99 now through August 31st).
Any of you who have read my blog somewhat regularly know that I love and use Topaz plugins. Topaz Labs offerings are realistically priced, and offer unique, quality plugins. They now have a program set up through the end of March which offers 25% off any Topaz plugin or bundle and a 3 month gift code for 500px as well as a 10% discount for current Topaz users for upgrades to a 500px “Awesome” subscription (normally $50/year) which allows users to host and sell their images through their own, modified online portfolio and store hosted by 500px. You can see all the Topaz plugins on offer by heading over the the Topazlabs.com website (click here) USE COUPON CODE “500px” at checkout to get the 25% discount and 3 month 500px gift account. For existing Topaz users looking to upgrade their free 500px account to an Awesome account, use code 10AWTL at 500px.com upgrade page HERE. For those not familiar with 500px, it is a very high quality photo community that enables members to share, and sell images through their own, user modified galleries and portfolio pages. I’ve used the upgrade discount myself from my free account, and have spent a little time now getting to know the ins and outs and it looks promising 🙂
