The are six collections in Topaz Glow containing over 70 effects to help you achieve vibrant and beautiful images.

The Neon Collection

With the Neon collection, Glow darkens the background, making the items in focus appear radiant with vivid colors. Use this collection to transform your photo into a light-infused, brilliant neon effect or select the screen blending mode to blend the glowing edges into your original photo.

The Graphic Collection

The Graphic collection contains a wide variety of effects that can turn your image into a sketch-like drawing, a dark and glowing fibrous look or even an energized vibration effect. With strong bold edges and softer image details, these presets are ideal for when you want the edges to stand out in your result.

The Liquid Designs Collection

Transform your image with flowing lines and smooth color transitions. With this collection you can create fluid illustrations and highly defined swirling line designs. By applying certain effects to detailed subjects, like trees, you can get curly edged illustrations.

The Fur and Feathers Collection

Use this collection for high-contrast, smooth-edged flowing lines to help separate and distinguish small details (like fur and feathers). Certain effects can be used to create detail illustrations that work well for animals and hair.

The Fantasy Collection

Glow’s Fantasy collection contains a wide array of different looks, ranging from soft and whimsical to bright and dynamic. Applied at full strength, these effects give dream-like, otherworldly results. When blended into the original image you can create more contemporary effects.

The Afterglow Collection

With this collection you can create a delicate and ethereal atmosphere with diffused radiant light effects. Producing a soft and muted glow, effects in this collection work well with nature and wildlife.
