It can be hard to make tack-sharp images that "pop".

Topaz Detail makes it easy.

Crystal-clear sharpness from real image details

Sharpness is the first thing you experience in a photo. And when you see an image where it's done really right... it's shockingly beautiful. It's almost surreal. Because that's something that we don't see every day: a photo where every single detail jumps out at you, grabs your attention, and never lets go.

If you want to achieve this level of exquisite image sharpness, Topaz Detail was created for you. Normal sharpening tools just increase edge contrast, which gives the appearance of sharpness. Topaz Detail enhances natural detail that already exists in the image, and makes your photo truly sharper.

"My goal is always to create stunning images, and Topaz Detail is crucial to give my images that special look."

Deep and beautiful images that draw you in

We don't often stop to appreciate how vividly beautiful our world is. Even the most mundane object can be a work of art if you look at it right. So when you see an image so deep and beautiful that it looks like real life, it really pulls you in. It can take your breath away to see someone push a static image to such depth and richness.

Because of its unique technology, Topaz Detail naturally makes your photos look more "three-dimensional". So don't make another flat picture. Instead, use Detail to create a deep and rich moment in time, frozen in the frame of your photograph... so vivid that you feel like you could just walk right in.

"Topaz Detail lets me make small but powerful adjustments that add a real punch to my final work."

Naturally crisp, clear, and clean photos

What happens when you drag the Sharpness slider all the way to the right?

Well, most sharpening tools work by increasing edge contrast to make the image appear more defined. So chances are that you'll get something pretty weird, with glowing edge halos and other side effects. And you'll still see this even if you only apply a small amount of sharpening... just not quite as clearly.

Topaz Detail does things differently by letting you directly enhance true image detail. So instead of just making your image appear more defined, your image will actually be more defined. There's no halos or sharpening artifacts to be found. Your photo will still be the same photo - just clearer and sharper.

One of my biggest priorities is getting my portraits tack sharp. I've tried and used many techniques like high pass, Photoshop sharpen, and other plugins. In the end I always find that Topaz Detail just does a better job.

Get tack-sharp photos using better technology.

Most tools simply increase edge contrast to sharpen your picture. While this is very easy and works very fast, it usually doesn't make your photo look very good.

Detail takes a fundamentally different approach to sharpening. Instead of haphazardly increasing edge contrast, Topaz Detail carefully figures out which parts of your image are "detail" and which are not. Then, it lets you independently adjust detail.

So, instead of just faking sharpness with brighter edges, you're now enhancing real detail in your images - detail that was already there when you first took the photo. This approach delivers vastly better results because of two big wins:

1. You can push your photo further... and more naturally. Traditional sharpening tools get these big ugly halos when you push them too far, but Detail isn't a traditional tool. With Detail, you can make your picture tack-sharp and still look great, with no halos or sharpening artifacts to be seen.

2. You can make your photos actually sharper. Instead of faking sharpness, Topaz Detail lets you independently control small, medium, and large details to get superior results. It'll look like your image was just that sharp straight out of the camera... something simply impossible with other tools.

Try Detail on your own photos and you'll immediately notice the difference. Start making sharper images than ever before.

Get crisper images with Topaz Detail.

Complete control over image detail for true sharpness.

Topaz Detail gives you six different ways to adjust detail, based on size and tone. If you're looking to make crisp and clear images, this is the best way to do it.

Make your photo deeper and more "three-dimensional".

Image quality isn't only about edge sharpness. Make your whole image appear deeper and "punchier" by enhancing the whole package: sharpness, depth, and local contrast.

Get natural images without halos or sharpening artifacts.

Detail uses a unique method that doesn't have the telltale signs of traditional over-sharpening. This means you can make your photos sharper and keep it looking great.

Selectively add sharpness to your image.

Using edge-aware tools, it's easy to selectively apply Detail to the parts of your image that need it most. Paint the effect in where you need it, and easily remove it where you don't.

Jeremy Hammons uses Topaz Detail to create tack-sharp and crisp portraits. By using Detail's technology, Jeremy ensures that his portraits are as sharp as possible, while still looking natural.

"I love Detail because of the quality of sharpening. I don't have to worry about color fringing halos, or other weird side effects that other sharpening techniques bring. I have pushed Detail pretty hard on portraits at times, and it always provides crisp, clean detail."

Topaz Detail gives Jeremy's portraits a powerful finishing touch. Notice that Detail isn't only making edges sharper. It's also making larger image features stand out more, enhancing contrast in key areas, and more... basically, doing everything that it takes to make Jeremy's photos really sing.

"I selectively sharpen my images - for example, I usually tend to avoid areas with bokeh. I use Detail's preset system and paint detail on the areas that need it. Some portraits just needed a slight nudge before they were tack sharp. In other images, I could bring back quite a bit of detail, sometimes even in areas that were out of focus."

Finally, check out Tim Wallace's award-winning and energetic car photography →

Tim Wallace uses Topaz Detail to help create tack-sharp and energetic car photography. Tim's dramatic style is highly regarded within the commercial and advertising industry. Detail helps him realize his vision by making sure that he's getting the sharpest and most detailed images possible.

"I have never been a huge fan of plugins, as many are just too aggressive... but I am really impressed with Topaz Detail. It offers me an exceptionally fine level of control over detail, and allows me to make small but powerful adjustments that adds a real punch to my final work."
Photo © Tim Wallace

Because Detail has such fine-grained control over natural image detail, it excels at improving photos without completely changing them beyond recognition. Tim selectively applies Detail only where needed, which creates a subtle but very powerful effect on his work. Here are more images he created this way:

"Topaz Detail sharpens and brings out detail without halos or significant increase in noise. It's definitely worth having in your digital toolkit."

"Wow" viewers with tack-sharp and crystal clear images.

It's always best if you get your focus right during your actual shoot. But if you've already taken the best image you can, Detail will help you make it as sharp and clear as it can possibly be.

Detail's approach to sharpening lets you enhance true detail that already exists in your image, rather than just making edges brighter. Not only does this give you better-looking results, it also prevents the ugly artifacts like halos and overshooting that you often get with other tools.

You'll forget about any other sharpening method after trying Topaz Detail for the first time. There's simply no better way to get tack-sharp images.

  • Enhance true image detail

    Topaz Detail doesn't fake sharpness. It figures out the real detail in your image - detail that was always there - and enhances it for genuine sharpness.

  • Give your photos more depth

    Don't settle for a flat photo. Detail helps make your photos deeper and more vivid by making your image look three-dimensional.

  • Keep your photos natural

    Instead of just making edges brighter, Detail enhances real existing detail and doesn't get the sharpening artifacts that you get from other tools.

  • Apply sharpness selectively

    Use built-in smart selective adjustment tools, like an edge-aware brush, to apply Detail precisely where you need it.

  • Use it wherever you edit photos

    Topaz Detail plugs into your existing workflow. Get it as a plugin for Photoshop, Lightroom, Aperture, and many more existing products.

    Awesome pictures

    At first I was quite skeptical about the results I would get and that the software would be too complicated to learn. I am using the presets and the details that I’m achieving are not only incredible but realistic as well. Now, my pictures are not just ok; they are awesome.

    Yes I would recommend this product.

    Taken into a new universe

    Being involved with macro photography and specifically shooting a lot of spiders, getting the detail of the subjects sharp but still looking natural, has been an ongoing struggle for me for a few years. Recently I acquired Topaz Detail and suddenly I am getting a crispness out of my photos that has been missing all the time. The software is easy to use out of PS6 and also quite fast. The various setting banks are very effective allowing immediate results from the very first time using the tool.

    I am still learning how to optimise my workflow using it and also getting my eye trained to see the minute differences created by the various adjustments. The very fine detailed adjustment gives Topaz Detail a lot of creative depth that allows so much artistic flair.

    So far I am very impressed with Topaz Products. They make my work stand out in the crowd!

    Hi you fantastic TOPAZ people.
    I’m using DeNoise, Adjust, & my latest one Detail. Topaz makes it so easy to
    achieve outstanding results without time consuming effort. My two favourite
    Presets are H.D.R. enhancement 1 which gives images great POP &
    Overall Detail 1. I do a lot of flower photography & Overall Detail is amazing.
    I use a Nikon D5100 APS & with Detail my images look like they were shot
    on full frame format. I find I’m using Detail more often than Adjust. I’m going
    to download the free trial for ReMask to give it a try, I’m sure I’ll end up
    purchasing it. Anyway all that is left for me to say is TOPAZ ROCKS.
    Thanks Guys & Gals.

    Instant 'POP' !

    I’m relatively new to Detail, having used other Topaz plug ins (Adjust and Restyle) for some time now. My work is predominantly in creative photography for the book cover market and recent shifts in industry trends mean that pin sharp images are vital. Detail allows me to do this quickly and easily while still giving me the opportunity to be creative; its far more than just a sharpen. If I had one niggle, it would be that its missing the grid preview function; it would be great if it had this to match the other Topaz plug ins I use. Great product .

    Does what it should

    I probably do not come near to fully utilizing this program, but what I do use it for it does well. I shoot a lot of people at a renaissance faire, many of them ladies that feel bad about their complexion or their age lines. I personally think they look fine usually, but do use this program for a wee bit of spot and wrinkle softening, and it is appreciated by those I use it on. And it is subtle so they do not end up looking like they were made of plastic. My main editor is Lightroom 4. I export into Elements when using this and any other Topaz programs as using it in Lightroom screws up the photo taken time for some reason. Also, I can resize down in Elements as the Tiff files in Lightroom are huge.

    Outstanding results

    As a professional photographer, I am more or less obsessed with the need for critical sharpness, which Photoshop’s “unsharp mask” does not really provide. Topaz Detail gives me outstanding results (which, in fact, I did not originally expect), and I have been using Detail on virtually all my photographs. I am still experimenting with all the program’s features, but at this point I would not want to be without it. Thank you for an excellent application.

    It actually really works!

    I was slightly doubtful that it would do what was said about it, but I thought I would try. It wasn’t the company that I doubted, but I have heard programs and filters for years tout that their stuff worked, and worked beyond our wildest dreams! So, I went ahead and tried it out (for FREE!) and immediately I saw that it was different, and, AND, that it was better than the way I was presently using. I played for a few more minutes, then decided to go ahead and buy it now, rather than later, that’s how much it impressed me.
    There is a slight learning curve, I’d say, but you can start immediately getting very good results. The learning curve is only to know ‘how much’ you should apply, when applying.
    If you want to bring ZING! to your shots without having the over-sharpened look, then try this, or, buy it. I am not going through my older shots to see how well this works better than my old way of going about sharpening, and I’m having fun amazing myself how well this does work.
    Yeah, I know that I sound like I am being paid to say this, but I used to be a Photoshop Retoucher/Creative Department/Artist/Photographer a few years back, and I could have sure used this. The “old way” I did things was pretty archaic in comparison. :)
    I definitely am glad I took the chance on this and tried it, it doesn’t cost anything to download it for free.

    Awesome piece of software

    Topaz Detail ist one of my favourites with respect to enhancement of digital pictures. It is really most striking how especially landscapes with a rather uniform sky can be improved. Cloud structures as well as details of the landscape become amazingly clear and obvious with a few clicks.
    Okay, you need rather powerful hardware but with a fast i7-processor this is not a big problem. What I really like from a technical point of view is the fact that multicore environment ist strongly supported.
    I can definitely recommend this software and would like to express my grateful acknowledgement to the TOPAZ programmers and designers – you made my life much easier :-).
    In my oppinion TOPAZ Detail is a MUST for the ambitious photographer. Together with TOPAZ Denoise you really get two powerful tools for creative photo development work.

    really like the previess

    To accomplish what detail does in a couple of clicks would take hours in Photoshop, the fact that this is not just a high pass filter

    I am now a big fan of Topaz Labs. I think it would be great if you could come up with a plug-in that would act something like After Effects or some 3D algorithims

    Topaz Filters as an alternative to PS ?

    Yes, Topaz Fotofilters are well suited to process pictures, which need a further touch-up, which were not achieved with the current archiving/processing software.

    Topaz Detail appears to be a very useful add on to Photoshop.I like how it offers a variety of enhancement styles,and the ability to fine tune all your adjustments.For sharpening,I’d say it surpasses Photoshop’s sharpening tools by a noticeable margin.Overall,yes it’s a keeper,but I have not used it enough to say it’s a “must have”.Photoshop on it’s own is tremendously powerful and quite capable of producing great results, all on it’s own,but I think Topaz Detail is perhaps a quicker means to get you there,and workflow is always an important consideration. So, I give it a thumbs, up so far!

    Best Photoshop Plugin I Own

    When shooting RAW, I bypass Photoshop’s initial adjustment screen and go straight to Topaz Detail for both detail enhancement and exposure / color adjustment. Also, the ability of apply enhancements easily over areas selectively is a big bonus. The presets get you into the ballpark quickly and with a bit of practice, fine tuning can be done with far more speed than with Photoshop tools alone. Bravo Topaz!

    I have been using Topaz products for a few years now. When Topaz Detail came out, I had to jump on it. I’m glad I did. It added that final touch to the images I work on. I think it is a great product and would highly recommend it. Anybody in the graphics field as well as in photography should use Topaz Detail. Your images deserve it and you should demand the best. Topaz Detail is it!

    Beautiful Results

    I mostly use InFocus, then Detail and finally Clarity. Its a great combination to make your photos realy look great with a lot of detail. In Detail I use Clouds or hdr enhancement specially with a cloudy day.

    My Topaz Detail comments

    I have to say that I don’t use Topaz Detail as often as I use Adjust and Clarity. But I do like the sliders to change the strength of the various levels, e.g. small, medium and large.

    I use Topaz Detail, Adjust and FX Lab along with Lightroom 5 and I’m very happy with the results I get when I do my part in camera. Great products.

    Topaz Detail

    I use Topaz Detail on every image I process. In most cases I only need to use Feature Enhancement or Light Detail. It just gives that extra pop to my photos.
    I also like the ability to add selective sharpening with the use of masking. Great feature.

    Detail Installation

    This program is great I use it most every day. I use Clarity also and it is great also. My only complaint is “why you do not allow phone contact for help problems. There several other Topaz programs, but I don’t look forward to getting the programs installed. Give me a phone number to use if necessary
