*Topaz ReStyle, your image, your vision, restyled and on sale!

Topaz ReStyle is a unique plugin, and I’ll be honest, when first announced a year and a half ago or so, I saw it as kind of kitschy.  With an image opened in ReStyle, you’re presented with a ton of re-toning filters which take the existing tones throughout your image, and shift them to produce some very cool effects.  While some were not a great fit for a particular image, I found it kind of tough to really know how to search through the multitude of available tone shifting filters.  I liked it, but when originally reviewing it, I don’t think I paid enough attention to the power of the adjustments.  This time around, I’m finding it a much more useful plugin.  It’s on sale, and you can download a full free trial to follow along by going HERE.  For those merely looking for a discount code, use “FEBRESTYLE” and go to TopazLabs HERE to download the software, and input the code in the coupon field at checkout to get $20 off.  Normally $59.99, it is on sale through the end of the month for $39.99.

For those interested in seeing a bit more, and reading about why I’m enjoying it more this time around, come on in…

*Adding an ‘aged’ feel to your photographs.

One thing I find funny about modern digital photography, is how much we tend to revert back to wanting it to look like film.  The irony of using a $600+ software program, thousands of dollars in camera gear and a bit of time in front of a computer to get an image to look like it was taken with an older film camera and some expired film is not lost on me.  But, if we’ve already got the tools, why not have the ability to use them for a variety of effects right?  I love vintage, or aged processing, so here are a couple techniques I have played around with to get my high resolution images to look like they were taken a while back…
