The easiest and most powerful way to make your photos more vibrant.

Intelligent "adaptive exposure" technology is unlike anything you've ever seen before.


Our unique adaptive exposure technology is magic for your photos

Topaz Adjust uses histogram information from the entire image to determine the best way to process contrast and exposure.

This process gets you fantastic results that just aren't possible anywhere else.

Adaptive Exposure: intelligent contrast and tonality

Topaz Adjust uses "adaptive exposure" technology to intelligently add localized contrast and tonality to your photo. It processes different parts of the photo differently, depending on the relationship between the tone in that section and the tone of the overall photo. Using more adaptive exposure will typically enhance the perceived dynamic range of your photo and make it look more "contrasty".

You can modify the number of regions that the algorithm in Adjust uses to calculate local tonality. A higher "Regions" setting typically generates more variations in tone, and the appearance of enhanced depth.

Use adaptive exposure to get very quickly and easily get great results in your photos. Back to Adjust →


Stunning detail enhancement helps draw people into your photos

This isn't your ordinary run-of-the-mill sharpening. Topaz Adjust can bring out details that you couldn't even see before.

Accentuate natural detail in your images to get far more powerful photography.

Intelligent detail enhancement: find even previously unseen image detail

Topaz Adjust includes the same underlying technology that powers our full-featured detail enhancement solution Topaz Detail. This technology analyzes your whole image to enhance small details without boosting noise. Because of this, the results are far better than a simple sharpening or local contrast adjustment. You can do some very powerful things when you use this with Adjust's adaptive exposure technology.

You can control whether Adjust processes detail and exposure together or separately. Processing them together will get a more gritty and grungy look, while processing them separately will minimize artifacts like halos and noise.

Try Topaz Adjust's detail enhancement and you'll never want to go back to the old way. Back to Adjust →


Intelligent color enhancement gives you a dazzling variety of color effects

Go far beyond simple hue, saturation, and luminance with Topaz Adjust's adaptive color technology.

Intelligently enhance color to make your photos more exciting and vibrant without oversaturating or turning them into cartoons.

Adaptive color: a newer and smarter saturation

Saturation is one of those settings that you can't increase too much, or your image starts to look ridiculous. That changes with the new "adaptive color" technology in Topaz Adjust. Based on the same principles as its adaptive exposure technology, Adjust analyzes the entire image to determine how to enhance color in a way that would look best. Here's an example:

Although the image above has bold and striking colors, it doesn't look "unnatural" in the way that it would if you just cranked saturation to 100. And this is just the tip of the iceberg – you can use adaptive color in combination with Topaz Adjust's other capabilities for truly stunning results.

Finally, Topaz Adjust gives you a way to create great color effects without overdoing it. Back to Adjust →
