Topaz Clarity

The natural way to make your photos more powerful.

Topaz Clarity uses intelligent contrast technology to give your photos more punch, completely naturally.

  • "It doesn't matter if you're shooting fashion, architecture, or landscapes, micro-contrast can make your images POP. You'll jump up and down in your editing chair from joy. In short, Clarity ROCKS."

    Frank Doorhof, fashion/celebrity photographer
  • "I'm very, very impressed. The nuances of color and light just pop from the monitor as you begin to utilize the multitude of sliders within the Clarity program. Highly recommended."

    Jeff Clow, professional photographer
  • "Want to give your photos a kick without introducing ugly halos? Topaz Clarity does just that, providing detailed control over a wide range of image attributes and a generous range of presets."

    Mike Tomkins, Imaging Resource
  • "Topaz Clarity gives an amazing level of control over your image. Even Lightroom doesn't measure up when it comes to contrast/clarity adjustments."

    Rachael Towne, Photoluminary

Give your photos that extra natural pop.

Do your photos look perfect straight out of the camera?

Ours don’t. If you're like us, photos come out flatter than you’d like. We adjust color and contrast to bring out their true beauty. But the hard part not overdoing it: we want to create a beautiful and striking image that still looks completely realistic.

Topaz Clarity makes this easy. Clarity's micro-contrast technology first studies your image, then lets you adjust contrast in a way that’s best for that specific photo.

If you have a flat photo that lacks contrast or depth, Topaz Clarity will be like a magic pill for your image.

Learn About the Technology →

Beautiful photo contrast like you've never seen before.


When was the last time that using the Contrast slider produced a breathtaking image? Chances are, it blew out highlights and crushed shadows in your image instead.

Topaz Clarity is the modern version of the Contrast slider, with better technology and better results. It enhances local contrast, which gives your image crisp details, better tonality, and "sharper" features without losing highlights or shadows.

"Clarity yields unprecedented control over every aspect of contrast. I was pleasantly surprised with its ability to recover shadow while increasing contrast for a much edgier look."

"When I ask 'does this picture need anything else'… the answer is usually Topaz Clarity. I absolutely love this plug-in."

So how exactly will micro-contrast technology help you make better photos?

  • Make your photos "pop" in much less time

    Clarity's microcontrast technology emulates a skilled retoucher's method of selectively brightening and darkening parts of your image. Get far better results in far less time.

    Get great images without manual dodging and burning
  • Get completely natural and organic results

    Micro-contrast is not edge contrast or sharpness. Even though your photo may appear sharper, it's an entirely different kind of processing. This means that you won't get common sharpening artifacts with Topaz Clarity like you would with similar tools.

    No halos or other processing artifacts
  • Apply contrast exactly where you want it…

    …and nowhere that you don't. Clarity includes simple but extremely powerful masking functionality that lets you apply the effect exactly where you want it.

    Includes advanced masking module optimized for ease of use
  • Get the perfect result in just a few clicks

    Clarity includes a large variety of preset effects that we've curated for many different kinds of images. You're almost guaranteed to find the perfect effect for your photo. (And you can save your own, too!)

    Use hundreds of beautiful hand-crafted presets and save your own
  • Use seamlessly in your existing workflow

    Topaz Clarity isn't a standalone software. Instead, it plugs directly into your existing editing software to minimize disruption to your workflow.

    Compatible with Photoshop, Lightroom, iPhoto, and more

"Topaz Clarity is a brilliant addition to the processing kit bag. It really makes your photos come alive."

    very useful

    I have used Clarity on many different types of photos. Done correctly it can make an outstanding image. For me, over doing the process is easy with Clarity. I can create images that have a look that is unique but may be a bit over the edge for the viewer?
    I use Clarity to some extent on most all my images.

    Clarity

    I’m an amateur photographer and Photoshop user. I have found Clarity to be the most useful tool in the Topaz package. I use the other products also but I’ll use Clarity on almost every pic for photo albums. It really makes the photos pop whether landscape or portrait. It’s great. Thanks Topaz!

    Intuitive and useful

    Topaz Clarity is an amazing piece of software … It allows the user to improve the definition of an image whilst not removing the element of choice… I also feel that the ability to affect the individual colours in hue and saturation is most useful. Brilliant.

    Almost ready to be a part of my workflow

    Being a creature of habit, it’s tough for something to break into my workflow but Clarity is doing that. I like contrasty images so this works wonderfully well, I haven’t yet explored it fully but already I see so much that I like. The presets are a good starting point but I would strongly suggest that they are nothing more than that. For every preset I almost exclusively dial it down a bit.

    Great add on

    I purchased this program after getting some recommendations and I have not been disappointed. The most amazing thing is that even on very old grainy shots I have been able to clean them up and make them look pretty near new.
    I am still experimenting as I am not a pro , just an enthusiast, but I love the ease of use and the variety of options in Clarity –

    Has potential, but needs a bit of work.

    I am a fan of some Topaz products, but this one looks like it has been released before final testing and tidy up.
    It is not yet up to the user friendliness of Detail, and the previews are much slower to load than Restyle.
    It shares the same annoying feature of Restyle where previews come up partly covering the original image and with a big black border that obscures so much of the original that it is difficult to compare. The reviews stay in the way while you try to click back to the original. If the original was moved to the top of the page and the preview appeared at the bottom so you could see both, that would be fabulous.
    At times the previews don’t appear or disappear while you are still looking at them.
    When you take a snapshot, you are taken to the Snapshots collection, then have to go back to the collection you were looking at and find where you were up to. It is unfortunate that Detail uses the method of just saving the snapshot and being able to scroll though all snap shot, whereas Restyle and Clarity use a better system of added them to a collection where you can view all of your snap shots together.
    However, Whenever you try to load a treatment from the snapshot collection in Clarity, the program shuts down, but leaves Photoshop thinking it is still open, so the only way out is to close photoshop through the Task Manager and lose any unsaved work.
    I would avoid purchasing or using Clarity until these bugs are sorted out and a more user friendly interface developed – then it could be a really good program..

    Improves image appearance

    I use Clarity on almost all my images. I shoot raw and leave Adobe Camera Raw with a flat image and perk it up with Clarity. I use denoise, Clarity and maybe Detail or Simplify. They are great products that compliment each other. I shoot street performers at night and deal with high ISO and wide open lenses. The Topaz plugins are necessary for quality images.

    More control over your photos

    I originally purchased Topaz Bundle a couple of years ago. Unfortunately, Clarity was not part of the original bundle. Although I found Topaz Adjust to be a very useful tool, I wanted to make more subtle changes to my photos and retain a natural look to my landscape photos. I finally purchased Topaz Clarity a few months ago and now use it extensively to adjust light, contrast and color in my photos. It has become my favorite Topaz plugin, and I extremely pleased with the amount of control I now have over my photos.

    Great Plug in

    I have all the plug ins in the topaz suite but i usually find topaz clarity the most useful. This didn’t happen overnight though as I at first found clarity a bit gimmicky. However over time and many many hours experimenting with these plug ins clarity has come out on top. Why is this I wonder? That is probably to do with the type of photography I prefer landscape & portraits. This plug in can bring something unique to these subjects. For landscapes can give an hdr look and for portraits its even more useful. But this takes a fair bit of fiddling but I don’t mind that.

    Handy Sharpening Plug-In

    Topaz Clarity is good for quick, non-critical sharpening touch ups and comes with a well organized collection of presets. Some settings add quite a bit of noise, which may or may not be desirable. When I launch it from Photoshop CC, Clarity usually crashes the first time.

    Overall I like the app. It provides nice detail without halos and very little noise. The two things that prevented me from a 5-star review are:

    2) The preset previews are huge and constantly interrupt my workflow.

    I’m prolly not a good guy to give a reference ’cause I kinda drink the Topaz Kool-Aid…..their stuff is awesome. It’s intuitive, easy to get a handle on using, and is very powerful. This particular tool helps very much in what I’d consider a “Mood-Enhancer” . I shoot a lot at night, and I’m very much into raw, gritty subjects. Clarity is very useful with Adjust for exactly that intent.

    “Portrait Soft” saved me a ton of retouching/editing time! The baby’s skin looks beautiful and the parents love every shot!

    I am now going back to some of my landscapes and running them through Clarity with amazing results!

    So glad I bought this! I only have one question: Why didn’t you develop it sooner?!

When it came to boosting my mid-tone contrasts in my final images in Photoshop, I had many sneaky around the bush and back again techniques I used, but with Clarity it’s now just a matter of choosing a preset or one of my many saved presets and Bam! Doesn’t get any easier then that!

    A very good Solution

    The accepted methods of clarifying an image usually always lead to a compromise which can often make an image look unnecessarily gritty – Topaz Clarify somehow obviates that problem.

    The range of presets is more than sufficient for most images plus there is of course the ability to fine tune – even create your own presets.

    Another bonus that Topaz Clarity can impart is that it can make an image from an average camera look as if it comes from a much more up market camera.

    Good but with program bug.

    Clarity works as advertised for the most part, however, I encountered a program bug that occurs with certain photos. I use an IMac, OS X 10.6.8, and using Clarity as a Photoshop Elements 11 plug-in. When I made my changes on the Clarity screen and clicked OKAY, even if I only made one small contrast change not even touching the hue/color section, the image at times ends with a very noticeable yellow hue background when transferred back to Photoshop Elements — that hue was NOT seen within the Clarity work screen before clicking OKAY. At present, the Topaz support team is working on the problem and seem concerned about correcting it.

    Clunky, but probably not Topaz's fault

    The “plugin” implementation with Lightroom 4 is extremely clunky. It involves Intermediate files, operations entirely outside of Lightroom, downloading (and using) an intermediate application that has no purpose other than to host the plugin, and the process, as one might expect, is both slow and involves much thrashing of your storage media. Barring further information, I blame Adobe for this. A plugin should appear in the toolbar, just as if it was a native facility — not make you jump through hoops to use it.

    Clarity’s adjustments are useful, more so than Lightroom’s local contrast feature used in conjunction with the usual levels tools. It is worth all the thrashing for many images, and that’s really saying something positive.

    One thing I wish the product had which it either does not have, or I have failed to locate it, is the ability to compare processed and unprocessed versions by pulling a vertical bar left to right and back, just as the website demonstration does. The all-or-nothing approach is much less effective at making clear what changes have occurred without the distraction of everything else changing at the same time.

    I tried many but love this the most!

    Recently many companies have come out with some version of clarity plug or software. I tried several but after comparing, I actually found Topaz the best. It did not over do it even in preset mode; did not create noise, and in general the pictures were just crisper without becoming too contrasty and noisy. Also very easy to use and fast. The only option I have not seen is batching but perhaps that’s just me not seeing that. But even if that option does not exist, I still prefer Topaz to the others.

    A Valuable Tool

    I’m a long time user of Topaz Adjust, and a bit of a nit-picker about interface design. Most are terrible. A bit on this issue later. The heart of this program is seven sliders whose function will become clear with the handy pop-up labels and a bit of experimentation. Four sliders handle four kinds of contrast situations. Three more control brightness in three tonal ranges. When I need to add crunch, I turn to Adjust. When I’m looking to keep a smoother surface but reveal details or bring out tonalities within an image, this is very useful and gives me control I didn’t have before.

    On my Mac some of the functions work slowly. I often have to hit several times to get an image to zoom in or out or to change a setting. Bravo to Topaz for including an undo/redo that works as expected. Not so good on making sliders, slide smoothly on my new Mac laptop. Five rotten onions !!!!! to Topaz for the button that labels the processed image as “ORIGINAL” and original image as “PROCESSED.” I understand what they mean, but gee wiz! How do such things slip through design review??? Sometimes I think nobody uses these tools until they hit the market.

    HOWEVER, in conclusion this is a valuable tool allowing me to do things that were, at the very least, hard to do previously. If I never learn more than what I described, it will be worth the cost and is already a part of my regular work. If the rest is useful, I will or will not learn it gradually.

    My “specialties” are landscape and nature photographs. I have found several useful tools among Topaz offerings that go beyond what I normally use in Photoshop but Clarity isn’t one of them. I fell for the discounted price and samples displayed in the adverts but it just didn’t do anything for any of the images I tried using it with. I’m not a professional but I do hold honors positions in the APS and FIAP photographic organizations.

    Good results

    I tried out Topaz Clarity on a photo I took of storm clouds moving over Kyrenia, North Cyprus, to the east of where I live. The sun was shining on the clouds in the late afternoon and it really was an awesome scene, usually you get storm clouds moving over to the west of us, far away. When I worked with Clarity I was able to bring out much more definition in the cloud and bring the pink tinge back to the original colour when I took the photography. I’ve since used Clarity on other photos I’m very satisfied with it, but there again I’m happy with all the Topaz plug-ins I use. The only problem I have is making up my mind which image I prefer!

    Purchased Clarity with the expectation that it might be ok but using it found the results stunning. Ran it over some previously processed images both good and bad and found it gave an edge to what I thought was already good but greatly improved images that I was struggling to bring the best out of.

    Busy World

    In our busy world sometimes I do not have the chance to prepare for the photos that I want to take. I also have not had the money to buy the camera that I would have wanted. My eyesight is not the best now.
    Topaz Clarity corrects easily and produces a photo that I am happy to say that I took.

    Does add zing to photos, easily, tho presets can go AWOL

    I’ve learned something of how to enhance y shots w photoshop elements, mainly changing contrast etc.
    Can take time, and not always ideal.

    Using Topaz Clarity makes this a whole lot simpler: load it up, and then see what various options look like. Some are a very long way off what I’d like [as with some of Tones, tho may suit some uses].
    But also find options that indeed add pizzazz; then have a look for one that looks best suited to the image. Also can edit further, including with simple masking to select parts of an image.

    One negative is that I’ve found presets have occasionally vanished from menus; still there in the application folder [on Mac], and it’s possible to restore them.
    Sometimes, reloading topaz does the “trick”.

    Superb for B&W

    I use Clarity almost exclusively for the final contrast tweaks to B&W images. I have LR5, Silver Efex and DxO Filmpack, but Clarity really does help get that little bit more out of the file, without nasty artefacts. Its great for adding a bit of microcontrast or working on overall, mid or low value contrast. I am getting results I cannot get using any other product and, having come from a darkroom background and selling my prints for premium $, this product is making quite a difference. I am a big fan!
    For an aerial project where the captured files have very low contrast, after the majority of work in LR5, Clarity really is delivering that final, but critical, 10%.

    A Tool to Restore the Memories That The Sensor Missed

    Did you ever have to explain a photograph instead of just showing it? For instance, did you ever say something like, “Here’s a picture, but you really had to be there…” After looking at a photograph of a landscape that moved me, I realized the photograph showed what I was looking at, but not in the way I remembered it. It recorded the details, but not the feelings. Yesterday I decided to try reprocessing that shot. I darkened the sky to bring out the clouds like I occasionally do with my graduated neutral density filters — if I have the time (but this was a hand-held shot from my canoe). That helped somewhat, but it still missed the mark. The sky was exciting, not just dark. My next step would normally be a long session of tiny curves adjustments; a painstaking trial-and-error process that does not always work well. Instead, I decided to try Topaz Clarity, even though I had very little experience using it. One of the presets instantly came very close to recreating my memory of the scene. With just little tweak, the new plug-in put back the feeling that my sensor had missed.

    I think that making your photographs illustrate your memories — including how you felt when you witnessed something — is much more important, and in some ways more accurate than merely letting your pictures convey the mechanical details caught by your film or sensor. Topaz Clarity is now one of my standard tools to help me do that.

    New filter among Topaz' best

    I have used Topaz filters for several years. My favorite filter, now including Clarity, get at details that other filter sets miss. They work well with tone mapped photos. I often use them to put a finishing touch or final improvement on photos I thought I had finished editing. Clarity adds something more to a well edited photo. You may not know what you wanted until you see it. It can also be used to edit from post-raw output to finish, using filter sets in steps. The filters are packaged in descriptive categories to help you choose. But you should experiment and cross category boundaries. Each filter has usable and useful manual controls. I like this filter very much.

    Another Tool for the Serious Pro-Am Photographer

    Yes, there are other products of a similar nature that accomplish similar objectives. Perhaps this one varies just enough to make it different from all the others in some small ways. Notice I didn’t say “better” as any software is only as good as the person using it. Knowing what a product can do and how to manipulate it to one’s advantage is key. I do wish this one had some noise reduction algorithms in it, as it can introduce noise when certain filters are applied. But, that’s not unusual for any software. I try to use Lightroom as much as possible before going to another product. If Lightroom can’t give me the result I want, I’ll try other means. Sometimes Clarity is the answer, sometimes not. The presets are, as always, just a good place to start and cannot be thought of as the end product in most cases. Is it worth the price? That’s a very subjective point. If it’s available to you and you use it, and you get a satisfactory result, then it’s worth the price.

    An Easy Fix for a Common Problem

    Noise isn’t always the problem in a digital photograph. Often the problem is the surface itself. Clarity allows you to make a problem surface blend in with your original intent. Eliminating problem spots on skin is just a click away and the change can be as subtle as you wish.

    Disappointed

    I agree with gphe that this product needs work on it by Topaz in order to make it efficient and effective in my workflow – although the actual micro contrast technology is good, the current version has several glitches on the user interface and feels like an early beta rather than a finished commercial product. In particular, the previews do not always appear and the original vs. processed toggle does not always seem to work. I am interested to know what Topaz are doing to correct these problems and when an update might be released because I really would like to use this product!

    Good manual control adjustments, auto settings are too aggressive.

    There is a ton of power in this filter and I can use it to eliminate many steps in a more convenient slider style software filter than using only Photoshop adjustments. Some of the adjustments are not available in Photoshop CS5. But the auto adjustments are far to aggressive for many of the images I feel I need it most for. So I usually back off of the adjustments given by the auto mode and fine tune most of the adjustments made by Clarity. In the end I find it to be a good tool in my plugin filter array and very powerful when used carefully and conservatively.

    Love to try

    I got very little use out of clarity, I did complain that it wouldn’t save what I had done. I had 2 agents try to help me with it, but much later a friend showed me there was a spot to put the license code, which I couldn’t find in email. Can you send that trial licence again?

    Is there any chance I could actually try it again? Or buy it with a good discount to really try it?

    I loved GLOW and will buy it if you can offer me another great discount like I received for Impressions. I love Impressions and use it all the time.

    Better, more comprehensive version of other Clarity/Clear implementations

    There are multiple implementations of Clarity – like adjustments, fo example Perfectly Clear in AfterShot or Clarity in Lightroom. Usually they tend to be non-configurable, what limits severely their usefulness, as it is hard to use them to precisely adjust local contrast changes to the type of the image. Fortunately, Clarity allows for very subtle application of the contrast adjustment, in line with the style and type of the image. I bought Clarity half year ago and used it extensively, both for portraits and landscape-type photos, so I had a lot of opportunities to test its usefulness, and I am completely satisfied with the Clarity. Since then, I bought some other Topaz products, including photoFX studio.

    Stunning results.

    Stunning results. Two must have programs for any photographer is Clarity and Adjust. Both plugins work extremely well with Corel and Adobe graphics programs. I’m hoping that these programs are soon adopted to AfterShot Pro 2 by Corel. Clarity allows me to pull out detail that exists but is not distinctive. Detail cannot be created, it has to be there in the first place. Clarity does a awesome job of retrieving and bringing a dynamic life to my work. Between Adjust, Detail and Clarity, my skills and use of time are maximized.

    Incorrectly Named

    To me, this is just an assortment of presets or actions.
    The word Clarity implies the ability to take a hazy photo and cleaning it up to remove the haze… making it a bit more clear.
    Disappointed at this point.

    Was this helpful?

    Thank you for your feedback!

    • Thanks for the feedback, and I’m sorry to hear the you are disappointed. Clarity is used by many photographers to cut through haze/fog and add more punch to details in their images. Check out Joanne West’s image at the top of the Clarity page, for example (use the slider to view the before/after images). As you can see in that image, Clarity will not remove the haze, but it does help to bring out the details and clear up areas of the image.

      Clarity does have many presets for our users to easily add certain effects, but you don’t have to use the presets. You can use the right hand side of the interface to adjust the contrast and tone settings manually for your specific effect. Check out the video here if you want to see an in-depth tutorial: https://youtu.be/92Ee-vpu4IM

    Highly Recommended ...

    Topaz ‘Clarity’ – (as well as ‘Clean’) – has become an essential part of my workflow especially during the final parts of a finished HDR image.

    It’s become ‘addictive’ and an image without it now – (for my style of work) – looks really lifeless without it !

    Well done … No … VERY well done, to All at Topaz.

    Really like using Topaz Clarity, performs as expected (I also use Topaz Adjust, and Topaz B&W Effects) and produce spectacular results.
    HOWEVER, achieving fine control of the sliders via the dragging mechanism provided in ALL of these products is clumsy & frustrating ! It would be so much better to have provision for control via mouse scrolling

    So many different things that you can do

    I am one of those that likes the far out photos and vivid color so Clarity is is just right for me . It’s pretty easy to use and that makes so mush the better. I run almost all my photos through Clarity even if I don’t do a lot just to see what could be done . I use it coupled with Photoshop Elements 14 and the two go to together very nicely. “I also have 3 other Topaz programs” .

    Disruptive to Lightroom Workflow

    Clarity certainly does provide a lot of interesting ways to pop an image, though it will take a lot of practice to learn how to use it. Fortunately, there are dozens of presets to play around with, and something is likely to be a start in the direction you want to go to improve the image.

    The link to Lightroom amounts to doing the wrong thing faster and is very disruptive to the usual LR workflow. That ‘wrong thing’ is to hand off the image to a new program, edit it in the new program (Topaz Clarity), save it out as a .tiff and then hand it back to LR. The problem is that none of the changes are in the LR history, you cannot undo them in the ususal way.

    Also, the processing is slow. I have a Core I7 4600M processor with 16G of ram on a Lenovo T440P laptop, and it is is not at all snappy.

    If you can live with this, then you may find the product very much to your liking.

    • Tbevan,
      We’re glad you’re enjoying Topaz Clarity. Aperture is actually not one of our supported host programs, although it will work sometimes it will crash intermittently and has other issues that cause our plugins to not function within it. For more information on supported host programs please check this article:

    Easy to use and great results.

    I downloaded Clarity just in time for my 7 year old granddaughter’s performance. The regular professional photographer was ill and I was asked to photograph the kids including portraits of the 20 cast members. I ended up with 650 keepers and processed them all with clarity. I used 1 of the portrait presets (smooth skin and brighten) and was amazed at the results. It was like the spotlight was on each kid! I used PSE 13 and it literally took me about 10 seconds per image to process since I used the same preset at the top of the filter menu in Elements for each one. I didn’t even open clarity after the first shot unless the light was bad and the photo needed tweaking. This is a fantastic product and thanks to Topaz for the wonderful presets. The photos really come to life.

    Photos POP.

    In just one click I can make a photo POP. If I don’t like the presets then I can adjust the photo to suit me with the manual sliders. Clarity has reduced my post editing greatly.

    Good Adjunct to Other Post Processing Tonal Adjustments

    I use Topaz Clarity as an adjunct to other tonal adjustment software from other software publishers. It has it’s place for me, early on in the process after I first make some RAW adjustments and tonal enhancements. I work with most of the post-processing software, but prefer Photoshop over Lightroom for the advantages of greater control. Clarity helps. I don’t necessarily rely on masking in Clarity, since I find it can be added to my layers in Photoshop, but it may be a convenience for others. It’s a good tool and for the discounted price, it was almost too good to pass up. I use it enough to justify making part of my workflow. Topaz customer service is excellent and so are their Webinars.

    Topaz Clarity Is Great

    Clarity is a wonderful tool to add to your processing toolbox. The best way to utilize Clarity is to dial in the different variations of contrast from Micro to Large, then jump into the tones adjust to your liking with the histogram and then you can tweak the colors with the HSL. Very good tool to enhance your photography.

    Great tool for that extra pazaz!

    Before using Clarity my photos seemed to be lacking the fine detail that made them stand out. With Clarity it is easy to make the colors stand out and attain crisper lines without over sharpening the photo.

    I wish it was easier to batch process a series of photos though. I’ve created actions in photoshop to speed it up but it still takes a while to process.

    My Favorite

    Of all of the Topaz products I own, this is the one I use the most often. I use it as my basic overall treatment when I want to refine and beautify my pix. The presets are intuitive and easy to tweak, often giving me “wow” results that do not overpower. The settings are easy to use within the presets, and it holds up when navigating in & out of Photoshop. Nice product!

    Fabulous but Flakey

    This is one of my go to plugins for all my photos. Great effects, wide array of presets and controls to perfect what I am looking for.

    However, it’s still version 1.00 after many years and the plug in quits regularly and has to be reinstalled. Come on Topaz, you can do better.

    Good Product

    I hummed & ahhed a little bit, before choosing 4 stars & wondered if it should be a 3 or 3 & 1/2 stars. All of the features except about 2 colour options can be quite easily managed in Photoshop, if you spend enough time tweaking with Photoshop. But I am happy enough to be able to more quickly adjust the 2 colours which take a lot of effort to access/tweak in Photo Shop, via Topaz Labs & it does make things easier. It is a professional plug in with an easy to access & navigate lay out.

    Topaz Clarity

    Without a doubt, Topaz Clarity met all expectations and is a necessary part of my workflow in post production. Nothing else that I have tried compares to the flexibility and control that Clarity offers when managing contrast. Anyone looking for that noticeable difference that will make their images stand apart should give Topaz products a try.

    Absolutely Essential

    As a professional photographer relying on delivering images with impact, Topaz Clarity has exceeded my expectations.

    I am also in the process of producing a second commercially produced book, and Topaz Clarity has rescued many a photo from banality, and given sparkle and depth to the entire presentation.

    An exceptionally outstanding product I couldn’t do without.
