Creative Expressions with Topaz, presented by Hazel Meredith
Presented by: Hazel Meredith Software covered: Misc, Texture Effects
We’re excited to welcome back Hazel Meredith for this workflow and artistic effect based webinar.
The Topaz Suite of products lets me take a photograph and truly make it my own. Let me share some of my favorite ways to modify an image utilizing the Topaz Suite.
I will demonstrate ways to combine presets and textures – from subtle to dramatic – and then add more drama with other Topaz products to create your own “work of art”.
Working with textures lets me express my creative nature. Textures are a great way to turn that “almost” good image into something wonderful and take that “great” image to fantastic! I call it, “turning ho-hum into a work of art”.
