When I was writing about the post processing I applied to my images in Monday’s post, I mentioned that I used the Topaz Adjust plug-in from Topaz Labs. It’s what gives my images that kind of pop that really makes them stand out. Well, I received a question as to whether or not I had tried using Topaz Fusion for applying Topaz Adjust directly from Lightroom. The answer is yes, I have used Fusion to run the plug-in from Lightroom but no, I didn’t do it for this image. So today I thought I would show you a video that explains what Topaz Fusion is and how you can use it in Lightroom for applying the Topaz Adjust as well as all the other Topaz plug-ins directly from Lightroom. I also cover a few reasons why I would want to take my image in to Photoshop before applying the effect. Also, you should know that the Topaz Fusion is only available for the Mac at this time but they say a Windows version is coming soon. You can find more info on Topaz Adjust and Fusion at the Topaz website.
Here’s a larger version of the final image as seen in the video.
