  • Sean Duggan, Layers Magazine

    "Lens Effects is a useful plug-in for those who want a wide variety of lens effects easily accessible in one place - it provides very good results."

  • Michele McDonough, Bright Hub

    "You don't have to be a professional photographer to become addicted to camera lenses, and Topaz Lens Effects is among the best in its class. It offers a degree of sophistication not found in other tools."

  • Photoframd

    "Chances are you have walked through some complex Photoshop tutorials to create these hot lens effects. Well, Topaz Labs now makes it easy to create these same realistic effects with just a few clicks."

  • Ana-Gabriela Stroe, Garmahis

    "An easy to use plugin which gives you great creative control over your pictures. Must-have for anyone who wants to give their photos the unique feel of analogue photography."

  • Rachael Towne, Photoluminary

    "Topaz Lens Effects allows you to apply realistic filters that simulate various looks that would in the past only happen in-camera."

Use 29 professional filter and lens effects to finish your photos right.

Create creamy bokeh, add realistic vignettes, simulate tilt-shift lenses, apply beautiful diffusion, and more.

Use pixel-perfect effects taken directly from
real-world camera lenses and filters

Ensure that people see your photos exactly how they're meant to be seen with a wide range of beautiful effects taken directly from real equipment.

This collection of creative and corrective effects is easy to use and helps eliminate the need for additional physical equipment. Lens Effects extends filter and lens functionality beyond your camera and allows you to make these adjustments after the shot, simplifying your shoot and giving you more control.

Accomplish things in your photos more quickly and with less effort.

This virtual camera bag of realistic effects reduces the need to carry more in your real bag.

Beautiful and creamy bokeh

Create amazing bokeh with an engine tuned specifically to lenses like the Canon 50mm f/1.2L, Canon 135mm f/2.0, and a variety of others.

While Lens Effects contains a lot of different and useful tools, special care was taken to make the bokeh and selective focus tools as powerful as possible.

Select any focal point you want with tools like the Smart Brush to easily and intelligently create depth maps to create natural and smooth bokeh.

    Amazing results

    Topaz Lens Effects gives me unbelievable control over the final image, it’s easy to turn close-ups into macros using this software.
    Love it.

    It is very simple to use.

    Was a bit disappointed with the effects. Still looking for the one that can add some different perspective to the background itself. Using mostly Streak, Fog or Haze.
    The rest are way too radical. But I use Adjust a lot. But overall, they do help to make your photos much more interesting. Thanks, Topaz.

    Easy To Use But Is It For You?

    The Topaz Suite is getting comprehensive. New technologies seem always around the corner. The same can be said for lenses, well specialised lenses at least. If you love your photography, you will also love your equipment. How many times have you wondered on whether you can justify paying all that money for a fish eye lens that maybe you will use twice? or that Lensbaby tilt shift lens that you need a degree in physics to understand the set up? well here is a program that can perhaps emulate both these effects and many many more. The process is very simple and many effects have other adjustments that can be added into the lens choice. Something even owners of specific lenses cannot achieve. It is an easy plugin.

    But as with some other plugins that Topaz offer I do think it is essential to try the 30 day trial before deciding on whether this plugin works for you. It perhaps is not as in depth as Photoshop, but it is a lot faster. The 3 stars I rate are for my reasons, as with other ratings, I believe a 1 to 5 star rating doesn’t give a lot of differential between Rubbish, Avoid to Excellent, A Must Have. Would I recommend this? I would recommend that you try the trial and then decide. If you love lens effect photography then this will satisfy your hunger. I don’t use effects but, its great that I can reach into the Topaz suite and pull this out as needed. Remember though, as with all other plugins that Topaz imagine, once you purchase, it will update and introduce new effects as they become available. It’s why I am very happy to be in the Topaz family. Don’t take my word for it though… See for yourself!!

    Good alternative to high price lens

    Very easy to use. The masking process could be a little frustrating at times but can be easily overcomed by, either using ReMask or creating your own mask in Photoshop, saving it and loading it onto Lens Effects. Overall Fantastic!

    I would give it 5 but you need to up the game tiffens stand alone and plug ins have more len effects to use. topaz may be slightly easier to use. So I am still with you.

    Fun and easy to use

    I’m still learning more about this, so haven’t discovered all there is to know yet. But sure love the Bokeh effect and so far have played with that the most. Also love the way I can change focal point to enhance what I want the viewer to see first in an image. Thanks for another great product, Topaz!

    Great Product

    As usual Topaz comes out with some outstanding plugins. So far I haven ‘t used it much but when I did it did a nice job. I have recently purchased Impressions and spending most of my time with it. Keep up the good work. I love the webinars as they are very useful. The ones I miss I go to the ones that were archived.

    Absolutely fabulous lens effect!

    Easy to use getting great results!

    Out of all Topaz’s editing software Lens Effects would be my favourite, so diverse in what can be created. Just love being able to add a real retro feel to my images. I’ve actually bought Lens Effects twice, lost the first one when my PC crashed, just had to have it again and with it came some new features which I’ m really enjoing!!!
