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.

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.

Important: Please note that you will NOT be able to import your Detail™ 2 presets into Detail™ 3.
