“I do a lot of image processing using the iPhone and mobile apps to create highly stylized images. When I discovered Topaz it opened up a whole new world of processing for my “big camera” images.”

Join photographer Rad A. Drew as he shares his processes for creating highly stylized images using Topaz Studio and an array of Topaz tools like Topaz Impression, Texture Effects, Glow, and more. Drew processes his images in a way that takes the viewer into a fantasy land often only vaguely reminiscent of reality.

Rad will share his workflow in Topaz Studio with the new “In Studio” access to Clarity, Impression, Texture Effects, Simplify, and Detail, to quickly and easily edit your images to achieve your creative vision.

Rad is a teacher, tour leader, and award-winning photographer whose creative images have been recognized in juried international competitions and exhibited in galleries around the world. His photography workshops in the South of France, Cape Cod, Tuscany, Cuba, and other destinations throughout the USA are great ways to learn while photographing beautiful areas of the world.

Topaz Glow 2 is a great way to create unique images with illumination and energetic sparks of light. You can create vibrant, beautiful images with easy to use pre-made effects or you can create your own. By using internal adjustments, ready-made effects, and settings, it’s simple to use Glow 2 to enhance images in a variety of ways!

But did you know Glow 2 can be used in a subtle way to enhance images?

This tutorial will cover the subtle way Glow 2 can be used to compliment one of my favorite subjects: cars, boats, and motorcycles. This tutorial will showcase effect adjustments that will compliment subject matter that has reflective and glassy surfaces. If you’d like to try this tutorial out for yourself you can use your own image of a car or download a practice image here. You can also find the practice image in Resources.

Learn how to accomplish the following in this tutorial:

  • Getting started with Glow 2
  • Use Glow 2 to give vibrancy to your images
  • Use Glow 2 to enhance color
  • Save an effect in Glow 2
  • Share an effect to the Community

In this tutorial I’ll be using an image of a classic Mustang and I’ll also provide a few examples of how the final saved effect can easily be saved and used with similar images.
