Topaz Studio 2 – The Future of Creative Photo Editing
A workflow devoted entirely to creative photo post-processing.
Topaz Studio 2 has only one purpose: creative photo editing. This starts after you select your image and ends when you export your finished work. It’s designed specifically around the artisanal post-processing workflow of carefully crafting a single image to your vision.
Studio is the editor to use when you want jaw-dropping images and you’re not afraid to spend the time to get them. It’s for creating works that push the bounds of your artistic vision; the few that you know you’ll look back upon in years as one of your best creations.
That’s why you won’t find library management, design tools, batch editing, or other common “image editor” tools in Studio. There’s a lot of photo editors out there that help you manage your workflow and make minor contrast adjustments. Topaz Studio is not intended for that. If it doesn’t contribute to the vision of creating singularly beautiful images through post-processing, then we’re not including it.
1. Cutting-edge and unique filters.
You’ll find that these aren’t your everyday image editing filters as soon as you give them a try.
Topaz Labs actually started off creating Photoshop filters. We’ve condensed our decade of specialized post-processing experience into a set of the most useful filters available only for Studio 2. Here are some of the most popular ones that you won’t find anywhere else.
2. Powerful selective adjustments and masking.
There’s a big difference between masking for compositing vs. selective adjustments. Topaz Studio focuses entirely on selective adjustments, and we think of it as a central feature of the product instead of an add-on. As you’ll see, this led to many design decisions intended to shorten the amount of time you spend refining your mask, like including edge awareness in each masking tool in Studio.
3. Fully non-destructive layers.
Layers are essential for creative post-processing because they allow you to apply effects in unlimited ways to your image. Let’s walk through an example workflow that illustrates what you can do with them.
