The folks at Topaz have created a new product called Topaz Texture Effects that enables one-click make-overs of an image using a simple grid interface.

Texture Effects contains over 130 effects including textures, light leaks, dust and scratches and overlays. Similar tools can be found in Topaz Analog Effects, but the texture overlay feature adds a lot of options to the package and provides photographers a quick way to make a boring photo really pop.

All of Topaz’s software works as plugins to Lightroom, providing easy access and editing.



You can select from pre-made effects or mix-and-match the effects to create your own.   All the adjustments can be masked using spot masking or brushed on providing extensive control of the edits to the image.




User generated textures can be added to the application for use on other photos and other user-created effects can be downloaded and applied from the new Topaz Community.



Topaz Texture Effects is available for Windows and Mac and is compatible with Lightroom and Photoshop (CS4 – CC, Elements 6+) and is on sale for $49.99 ($20 off) a limited time through November 20th.  Use coupon code TEXTUREFX for $20 off.
