This is the second in a series of review of Topaz Labs plugins for Photoshop. I’m not a Photoshop expert, and the tools that I use have to be easy to understand and straightforward to use. I have used Topaz DeNoise for about a month now and have found that I can rescue images that I normally would have deleted, but saved for emotional reasons. Now I have more confidence in using high ISO settings and long exposures, knowing that I can correct the image sensor noise these techniques generate.
You can read my full review of Topaz Denoise and see how I’ve used this tool , including a few image examples.
Topaz DeNoise is available individually or as part of a Photoshop Bundle. The price of Topaz DeNoise alone is around $80 and the complete Photoshop Bundle retails for about $180, a savings of $160 off the separately priced plugings. Topaz Labs offers a number of upgrade paths if you choose to purchase an individual plugin, then decide to upgrade to the full Bundle.
Topaz Labs is getting ready to release a new versions of their plugins, and the company policy is to provide free upgrade to a new version to owners of the current version. I will update my DeNoise review when the new version becomes available. Visit the Topaz Labs Web Site for more detail and to purchase your copy.
