Topaz Adjust Review – and The 57 Chevy

Topaz Adjust Review – and The 57 Chevy
Topaz Adjust Review   and The 57 Chevy photo

Image by Stuck in Customs
I’ve found a wonderful new piece of software! It’s called Topaz Adjust and I’ve written a full Topaz Adjust Review here on the site. People send me software all the time to review, but I only end up reviewing stuff that I actually use. Eric Yang, one of the gurus over at Topaz, also gave me a Topaz Adjust Coupon Code of "STUCKINCUSTOMS" for 10% off to pass along to my readers. I think you will like it as much as I do! I actually recommend the Topaz Bundle (for MAC or PC), but you can read more about why inside the review.

Below is a shot of a ’57 Chevy. I saw it when walking back to the Magnolia Hotel on Friday night after dinner in Dallas. I took a photo of this pretty car under the blue lights of the porte-cochere, went upstairs to my room, downloaded the Topaz Bundle software, made the adjustments, and had the whole thing finished in less than 30 minutes. That quick turnaround speaks to how easy the software is to use. I’ve since used it on a number of other images, including some unpublished ones.

  4. don j schulte @ oxherder arts

    Excellent effect assuming this is a single image. Will have to look into this software.

  5. ecstaticist

    I have been using topaz adjust for some time and I agree. It is very useful and simple, especially when working with single files i.e. no bracketed shots available.

  6. ZekaG

    Used it before, but will give it another try… Thanks Trey.

    Been using Topaz adjust for about 6 months, can get some great results from it with little out having to do too much, especially with some of the standard presets that the software comes with.

    Can also turn out some great results if you post-process an HDR with the Topaz Adjust filter as well –

    welcome to the club Trey… Granted this is not Lucis but it is a brilliant solution for those who don’t have an extra $600 lying around.

    Wow! This goes back to an era when GM knew how to make cars and money too.

    Now they can’t pay their bills and are nearly bankrupt. It’s a funny thing how time changes things.
