Topaz Labs LLC B&W Effects Overview

  • 1Description

The DVD version of Topaz B&W Effects Plug-In from Topaz Labs LLC is designed to expedite and enhance the entire process of converting an image to black and white. A complete range of controls for maintaining high image quality is presented, with the ability to quickly and easily adjust the tonal and contrast ranges, apply tint colors, and utilize other process-inspired effects for simulating the look of traditional black and white photographs.

The intuitively-designed interface permits the use of hundreds of different one-click effects to imagery as well as the ability to customize existing presets, or design your own, which can be saved for later use. An efficient system of adjustment sliders permit fine-tuning over chosen effects' appearances and an integrated Zone System view allows proper placement of tonal values for an expanded dynamic range. Benefitting all of the creative control offered is an enhanced processing engine, which expedites previewing and applying the effects to imagery.

This plug-in is not a standalone program and requires a compatible host program for use. Compatible hosts include: Adobe Photoshop CC, Photoshop (non-CC), Photoshop Elements, Photoshop Lightroom, Apple Aperture, iPhoto, Corel PaintShop Pro, PhotoImpact, Serif PhotoPlus, Topaz photoFXlab, and IrfanView.

Tonal contrast is a core feature of the plug-in and helps to produce blacker blacks and whiter whites, with an extensive range of mid-tones.
To give images a more authentic or nostalgic appearance, popular film grain styles can be applied to images to simulate the look of scanned film types.
Artistic styles, vignetting, and border effects can be added to imagery to further refine the overall appearance.
Over 200 effects from eight different collections can be applied when converting an image from color to black and white, and include:
  • Traditional, for classically-styled black and white effects
  • Toned, for adding differently colored tones or tints to images like copper, gold, selenium, sepia, and antique
  • Stylized, which combines traditional black and white images with creative effects like diffusion, cartoon, paint, multi-tone, and more
  • Cyanotype, which mimics the cyanotype printing process to give a rich blue hue to images
  • Albumen, for adding a range of traditional colorings to images, from purple to chocolate brown, to simulate the look of albumen printing techniques
  • Platinum, which gives warm blacks and silvery whites with an especially notable tonal range
  • Opalotype, which is reminiscent of printing onto translucent white sheets of glass and then hand-tinting or coloring the imagery
  • Van Dyke Brown, which is characterized by sepia and brown print tonalities with the ability to vary hue and color through different toning options

Topaz Labs LLC B&W Effects Reviews

B&W Effects Plug-In (DVD) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Photo Software I have used Topaz for over a year and I'm somewhat familiar with them . It's not something you would use on a daily basis but it's still fun to use. So I bought the Topaz Black and White Effects because I love black and white photography and I think Topaz delivers and you can't beat the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to use This is my first software puchase for photo enhancement. I have been using iPhoto, but found I needed more for my B&W work. Based on the positive reviews, I decided to try it, and I couldn't be happier. The hundreds and of presets are no-brainer tools, and you can tweak from there. One criticism: it clearly states on Topaz's website that iPhoto is a compatible host program, but when I could not edit within iPhoto, and subsequently emailed Topaz about this, they replied is is NOT currently compatible with iPhoto. I had to purchase photoshop in order to use it. Now, I may be the only one using iPhoto, at his wont be an issue with most people, and I was most likely heading to Photoshop eventually anyway, but I was very disappointed in the false advertising. Once I started to work with this, however, it was easy to get excited abut the B&W enhancements. I do love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest BW Conversion on Market This Topaz product surpasses all other including NIK. When I first tried this product, I knew instantly that this was it.My results equal a 4x5 bw sheet film. This product makes it even better. You have the choices that you need to make it perfect. It is a pleasure to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless.....No star... Purchased the CD, find installed it fine. open it in Photoshop fine. start working with it fine...But then I found out that the serial # that came in the box do not work. contacted Topaz that I have to register with topaz and then and then.....Maybe I'll the get magic # to use the software....Why can't the box with the disk have the right number to open the software?......Geeks love to make things complicated.....So when I have the time I will go back to B&H and return the thing...Maybe or through it away...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissapointed I was looking fo a photo editing software and thought I found one that could be the one. Although it very well could be. Looking for a software product like topaz on there web page it does not state that you need a host product to use topaz. If it did state this it was not very clear. Now I have a product I can ot use unless I by a premium host product to work with topaz. Not very happy.
