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

  1. Download the latest version from our downloads page.
  2. Go through the installation process. If you need any more help with this, take a look at our setup page.
  3. 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!
