Using Topaz's FX plug-in

Posted by

The recently new Topaz FX plug-in is amazing. Not only does it manage Topaz plug-ins, it allows you to add many third party plug-ins. For this photograph, I applied a Snap Art 3 layer from within FX. Unfortunately at this time, you can't add Nik's plug-ins.


NIKON D700 1/125 second F/8.0 ISO 400 105 mm (35mm equiv.)

I like the effect. This version really "pops" compared to the earlier version, which is quite compelling, as well.

A Van Gogh texture, very nice !
PS (copy and paste): I am hospitalized for 8/10 days and I do not know when I could be operational to key in... On the other hand I hope to be enough in good shape to read you (Franck will help me there!) so I have uploaded a photo every 2 days. Then do not hesitate to visit me, it will be again of a big support in this second time of trouble. Thank you in advance to all, kisses and see you soon :-)
