The gears of time continue to grind, and we’re at that most opportunistic time of year for photographers. Personally, you couldn’t pay me to wake up the morning after our Thanksgiving holiday to wait in line for a $0.99 DVD player at Walmart. It’s a silly tradition built on a consumer culture’s need to find a deal at any cost. Luckily for us, the marketing world has found opportunity in offering online deals for almost anything available, and for those of us that can hold off until this time of year, many killer deals can be found.
As is often the case, Topaz has brought their half off deal to the black Friday party yet again, and it is an amazing deal. You get all 17 Topaz plugins for $250, which is 50% off the already halved price of the Complete Collection, so in reality, it’s more like a 75% off sale if you were to individually buy these programs one or two at a time. For those who already own one or many Topaz plugins, don’t fret! They offer a “Collection Upgrade” where if you sign in on the website, it will automatically deduct the pricing for the plugins you’ve bought and registered, and offer you the remaining plugins at an even further decreased price. This only works if upgrading to the Complete Collection though, as singular plugins will stay at full price. The sale runs from Friday November 25th, through Wednesday November 30th. You can always download full free trials of any or all Topaz plugins, but I’d try them soon if you want to go this route as it will be another year at least before getting a crack at all 17 of the plugins for the price of a few of them.

Find the sale on Topaz website HERE, and use code “BLACKFRIDAY16” at checkout to receive the sale price.
I’ve written about and reviewed many of the Topaz plugins over the years here on the blog. I thoroughly enjoy, and constantly use a solid handful of them. Here are links to my reviews for a few of my favorites:
Topaz DeNoise – comparing DeNoise 5 vs DeNoise 6
Topaz ReMask – If you’ve ever had to select anything in Photoshop, try this. Seriously.
Topaz Clarity – Professional punch and definition with a single click.
Topaz Glow – Some seriously slick fractal effects
Topaz Adjust – A library of effects in a single plugin
Topaz Impression – Artistically visualize your imagery
I could go on, but rather than add to a list of links, just let me know if you have any particular questions on any of the plugins and I’d be happy to give you my personal opinion or any insight that I can.
Happy holiday season and thanks for stopping by.
I hope you and yours are well, and happy shooting.
