Working with the new Topaz Glow

Here are a few examples I did using the new (out today, 12/9) Topaz Glow. Glow seeks out hidden patterns in images and illuminates them.

Thanks Doug! It was literally one-click (both the photo itself and the effect, ha!).

See a much larger version on the bottom of my home page.

Looks like Fractilus; maybe a smarter version since it identifies underlying patterns. Still cool results I see.

Indeed, but that was never available for Mac. Plus Topaz provides access to a wider range of effects that you may recognize from their other plug-ins.

Didn't know that Fractilius wasn't available for MAC. Good for MAC users then.

Still cranking 'em out! I've mainly been posting new art on my Twitter feed.

Re: Working with the new Topaz Glow

I have tried their trial version and Love all the results I achieved.
I have also tried a competitors similar program and they don't compare to the mount of presets and control sliders that Topaz Glow provides. Will definitely be buying this one!

I also enjoyed all the webinars that Topazlabs has provided for Glow. They are extremely informative and help in understanding the program capabilities more quickly. Plus they give away a free Glow program at the end of each webinar…. hoping to be a winner, if not, I will definitely buy by my end of trial period.

Your result examples are great.

Re: Working with the new Topaz Glow

Glad to hear you're enjoying it! Topaz has been replacing a number of other developers' plug-ins over the years, and doing a better job of it!

As for the free webinars, here is the link to register for or watch them.

Thanks for the link
Already bookmarked it and have been signed up for all the Glow webinars. They really take all the guess work out of using the program, they provide excellent info & tips.
Thanks!
