Ive had some time experimenting with the effects this plugin can achieve and I can highly recommend it .
Its a very easy to use plugin – perhaps even easier than Adjust, because it comes with well over 100 presets to get you started,
Here are a few very quick images that Ive had fun playing with.
The photo below isnt that inspiring ( taken from below so you couldnt see all the of the cathedral but i liked the spires and I especially love how the spires are really bought out with the effects achieved in Topaz B&W
You can even get a nice slightly desaturated painterly effect
I know over the coming days I will be experimenting a great deal more and hope to have some tutorials written very soon.
