Topaz Suite

I mentioned a couple of weekends ago that I had purchased a copy of Topaz Suite at the Digital Show. It is a set of Photoshop filters and I am enjoying playing with them.

The most impressive one so far is DeNoise, which removes digital noise from photographs. I have used it to improve the photographs I took in Chicago and Thailand recently with the little compact point-and-shoot camera. A marked improvement in them, particularly those taken in low-light such as the night shots from Willis Tower. I’m very impressed with DeNoise.

Tonight I had a little bit of a play with some of the “artistic” filters, namely Adjust and BW Effect. Tell me if you like the results.
