Overview and demonstration of Topaz Studio 2

Our October meeting will be devoted to an overview and demonstration of Topaz Studio 2, a new tool from Topaz Labs.

Topaz Labs uses the slogan “creative photo editing” and says:

“Edit your images beautifully with powerful filters and frictionless masking in a fine-tuned non-destructive layer workflow.

“A workflow devoted entirely to creative photo post-processing.

“Topaz Studio 2 has only one purpose: creative photo editing. This starts after you select your image and ends when you export your finished work. It’s designed specifically around the artisanal post-processing workflow of carefully crafting a single image to your vision.
Studio is the editor to use when you want jaw-dropping images and you’re not afraid to spend the time to get them. It’s for creating works that push the bounds of your artistic vision; the few that you know you’ll look back upon in years as one of your best creations.”

This tool is derived from the powerful and creative plugins by Topaz Labs that have enabled taking images to new and imaginative levels.

You will be delighted and tempted by the marvelous possibilities.

Bring your camera to the meeting. We will help you to make sure that your camera knows your name, the time and date, and much more.

In addition to Ludwig’s presentation, this will be our first meeting featuring a brief show and tell. Jim Worthington will show and tell about his experience at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm.
