In case you’ve missed the previous sales, Topaz Texture Effects just had it’s first upgrade since inception a few months ago and they’re celebrating with a BIG SALE! Save $20 onTopaz Texture Effects through January 31, 2016! Regularly priced at $69.99, you can now snag it for only $49.99!
I already wrote a post introducing the original program which includes a library of over 150 expertly crafted presets, 275+ high-resolution textures and effects, and instant access to effects other Topaz users have shared with the new Topaz Community, but now it’s even better 🙂
Edited in Topaz Texture Effects
The update includes:
42 NEW textures
15 NEW effects
A whole new Weather category in the Texture Adjustment panel
All of this added to an already spectacular product that works as a stand alone photo editing program as well as a plug-in for Photoshop or Lightroom 🙂
I enjoy many of Topaz Labs photo editing software products, but they hit it out of the park with this one IMHO.
As with all Topaz products – try it free for 30 days. And unlike most of the competition, upgrades are FREE for life 🙂
Now available in their own online texture gallery are several “unique to the North Woods” high resolution textures available for purchase!
High Resolution Textures
These textures are all from photos that I took myself on a DSLR of some of the resources that can be unique to the Upper Midwest region, such as:
Lake Superior shoreline
Lake Michigan beaches
tree bark from birch and other North Woods species
rock and stones
plants and grasses
snow and ice
All of the textures have been adjusted to 50% gray in Photoshop (you’re welcome) and can be applied to your images in Photoshop or uploaded in to your own assets library in Topaz Texture Effects.
How much do these unique high resolution textures cost?
Only $1 per single photo with a $5 minimum purchase.
That gives you a perpetual, non-exclusive license with significant freedoms and helps me cover costs associated with hosting the files on a proofing site, credit card processing / bank fees, file delivery, buying gas & groceries, paying the landlord, etc.
Who can use these high resolution textures?
You can use them for personal or commercial use.
Who retains copyright to any high resolution textures that I download from this site?
Do I need to provide attribution for any textures that I download from this site?
While a link back to this site is appreciated if you use one of my files to enhance your image, it is not required. Who the hell can remember where they downloaded all of their different textures from anyway? Let’s keep it simple.
Are there any restrictions on my use of textures that I download from this site?
Yes. You may not resell or redistribute any of my photos (duh), or allow the use of my photos on print-on-demand products. Simple. Other than that, you are granted a wide range of freedom to use the files in your projects and alter if desired.
Will the textures I download have watermarks?
No. The watermark that shows on the files in the proofing gallery will NOT be on the downloaded photo.
Is there a minimum order?
There is a $5 minimum at this time.
How do I get the files?
Just add the files you want to purchase to your shopping cart when you visit the texture gallery and you will get an email telling you how to access the download once your payment is processed. Please be sure to check your spam folder if you do not receive an email soon after completing your purchase (it will come from the proofing site, not from northwoodsphotos.com).
What format are the photos?
All the textures are high resolution jpg files at 300 dpi.
I will be adding more textures to the online gallery as time allows. If you have any other questions – feel free to ask! 🙂
If you’ve ever experimented with adding textures to your photos in post processing, you know that it can be a fairly time consuming experiment. In the past, I’ve always used Photoshop and had to add several layers to an image to get all of the effects that I wanted. I’ve even added several layers just of different textures and then clicked the little “eye” icon on or off to see how each one would look on the actual image (not to mention scrolling through the blending modes). I do have a software program that has some texture pre-sets, but any time they update their software (which is usually at least once a year), they want you to purchase it all over again to get the updates. As of today, Topaz Labs has introduced a brand new product to their outstanding line-up of photo post processing software: Topaz Texture Effects! Now you can preview a bunch of different effects applied to your image simply by scrolling over with a mouse, then making a selection with a single click! And any time Topaz updates their software, you get those updates free of charge 🙂
Topaz Texture Effects allows users to create a variety of textured, toned, and lighting effects in a fraction of the time it takes in Photoshop or other editing software. The program includes a library of over 150 expertly crafted presets, 275+ high-resolution textures and effects, and instant access to effects other Topaz users have shared with the new Topaz Community.
Check out these before and after images made with a single click:
From soft and subtle lighting effects:
… to high impact grunge and contrast:
… turn a good photo into an amazing image with just a single click!
If you want to tweak one of the 150 presets that come with the software, you can do any part of it easily. The program comes with 275+ high-resolution (5000x5000px) image textures, light leaks, dust and scratches, borders, color overlays, etc and you can edit any of them by clicking the black circle with horizontal lines icon – or start your own from scratch.
You can also upload other textures that you may have downloaded elsewhere or created from scratch yourself and use it within the software.
