From chatting with many of you during our webinars I’ve realized that there are some key features and shortcuts within the Topaz programs that many users aren’t aware of. One of the most common questions that comes up is: “What is a Snap?”
Snaps is a feature that you’ll find within many of your Topaz plug-ins that allows you to take a “snapshot” of a group of settings…much like a temporary preset. The Snap button has a camera icon and is located at the top right of your program interface underneath the preview navigator. You can take up to 99 snap shots. Located to the right of your Snap button are the Prev/Next buttons. These allow you to quickly scroll through the snapshots you’ve taken.
Thanks for your interest in the new Detail™ 3. We are happy to offer the new Detail™ 3 as a FREE upgrade for our existing Topaz Detail™ customers. If you are a current Detail™ customer (meaning that you previously purchased Detail™ or a bundle/bundle upgrade that included Detail™) and would like to upgrade to the latest version please do the following:
How to Upgrade:
Download Detail™ 3 from our downloads page. If you need additional step-by-step instructions on downloading or installing please see our setup page. Optional: You can remove any previous versions of Detail before installing the new version.
Fusion Express users: Detail will automatically update your Fusion Express for you in Lightroom, Aperture and iPhoto.
photoFXlab users WILL need to update to the latest version of photoFXlab in order to use the new Detail™ 3. You can download the latest version of photoFXlab (released today) from our downloads page.
Important: Please note that you will NOT be able to import your Detail™ 2 presets into Detail™ 3. Detail™ 3 uses a new and improved technology, so your Detail™ 2 presets will not be compatible with Detail™ 3. When you install Detail™ 3 it will not automatically uninstall Detail™ 2, so you will still have access to your Detail 2™ presets.
Topaz Detail™ just got better! The soon-to-be-released Detail™ 3 features enhanced performance, new presets, preset collections, masking capabilities, opacity control and lots more! These new productivity-increasing tools offer you a more professional workflow experience with unlimited flexibility and customization over your image detail.
