DALLAS—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Topaz Labs releases Topaz Texture Effects™, a plugin or standalone software that helps you create a variety of textured, toned, and lighting effects in a fraction of the time it takes in other editing software. Texture Effects includes a library of over 130 expertly crafted effects, an extensive collection of texture assets and instant access to user shared effects within the new Topaz Community. That means no more scouring the web for a look that inspires you. With Texture Effects, inspiration is only a click away.
“Texture Effects gives you the flexibility to effortlessly add the look you love to any image, from soft and subtle to heavily stylized,” said Nichole Paschasl, photographer and Director of Marketing for Topaz Labs. “And with over 275 high-res textures, light leaks and more included, you no longer have to search for that perfect texture. Just find an effect that you like and quickly customize it into something you love.”
Texture Effects removes any complex tools and time consuming steps, allowing our users to create something they love with straightforward controls, an intuitive experience and limitless customization. “We want our users to spend more time creating and less time struggling with complicated software,” stated David Baca, lead developer of Topaz Texture Effects. “It’s all about making the workflow more streamlined and easier to understand.”
Texture Effects is also the first program in the Topaz line-up to incorporate the new cloud-based Topaz Community, an ever growing library of user created effects. “Our users have been requesting a place to share effects for years and now they can with the new Topaz Community. Once a user shares their effect it will instantly be searchable in the Community for others to download and apply to their own images,” said Monte Nichols, lead developer for the Topaz Community. With the assets included in Texture Effects and the new Topaz Community it’s never been easier to get inspired.
Topaz Texture Effects works as a standalone editor as well as a plugin for Photoshop CS4+, Photoshop Elements 6+, Photoshop Creative Cloud and as an external editor for Lightroom. It is compatible with 64-bit Windows 7+ and Mac OS X 10.8+. Photographers can take advantage of a free 30-day trial with Texture Effects. Though the standard retail price of Texture Effects is $69.99, it is available at a special reduced price of $49.99 until November 20th, 2015.
