Topaz Labs is excited to announce our soon to be released product, Topaz Clarity, a plug-in that helps you create powerful and refined images by intelligently enhancing clarity and contrast with absolutely no artifacts or halos. Topaz Clarity will be available next week.
Topaz Labs is excited to announce that Topaz B&W Effects 2.1 has been released! This is a free upgrade for all users who have already purchased Topaz B&W Effects.
If you have yet to test out B&W Effects, download a free 30-day trial here. Or if you wish to purchase the software, enter bw21 at checkout to receive an additional 30% off B&W Effects + the full Bundle.
We’ve just released Topaz B&W Effects 2, a major upgrade that’s free to all existing customers of B&W Effects.
Upgrading your software
- Download the latest version from our downloads page.
- Go through the installation process. If you need any more help with this, take a look at our setup page.
- If you have Topaz photoFXlab, you’ll also need to uninstall it, then re-download and re-install the latest version to have it recognize B&W Effects 2.
License keys and activation
You shouldn’t be asked for your license key again if you’re upgrading, but if you do your B&W Effects 1 license key will still work. If you’ve lost it you can look it up here.
Uninstalling previous versions
You don’t need to uninstall B&W Effects 1, but you can if you like. Use the Control Panel to uninstall on Windows. To uninstall on Mac, delete the B&W Effects 1 folder in Macintosh HD -> Library -> Application Support -> Topaz Labs.
Thanks and enjoy the upgrade!
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.
