    A bit disappointed. Textures are rather low resolution. Textures applied on images 5616x3744px (like from Canon MKII) look poor, pixelated or blurred.
    If you are looking to enhance your mobile images, that’s a cool tool, but definitely not for a professional use.

    Thank you for your feedback!

    • Thanks for trying out the new program! The included textures are all high-resolution 5000x5000px files. I think what you may be seeing is a display issue…are you on a very high resolution screen? If so, try to save the image or process back to photoshop and see if the texture addition still looks blurry. If this is the case, can you send your screen resolution details to help@topazlabs.com and reference this post? That way we can be sure to get it updated to display correctly. Thanks!

    Cannot use a Photoshop layer

    So I download a trial, I open it stand alone and then in Photoshop CC. There appears to be NO WAY to put the filter on its own layer and so any texture effects are destructive. That does not fly!

    Was this helpful?

    Thank you for your feedback!

    • LBColeman,
      If you’re using photoshop you can always create a duplicate layer of the background and then apply the filter to that just like you would any of the other filters in Photoshop. If you’re using the standalone version you can work off a copy of your image and blend them in another tool. Or, you can use the overall mask section at the bottom of the adjustment stack to blend with your original image. So it’s totally possible to finish your edit non-destructively. If you’d like more information on how to duplicate your layers check out the getting started section of this tutorial:

    Looks like an incredible product – after installing:
    I can open it, browse, load a pic (jpg) and that’s it.
    Win 7 64, Photoshop CC 2015, LIghroom CC 2015 or Texture alone –

    An awesome way to add texture to images

    Another excellent Topaz Labs product. It’s easy to use, and allows you to add texture to your images very quickly. I have this mad idea that a photographer should be able to make art from almost any image, and the Topaz Photo Collection is key in bringing me closer to this ideal. Texture Effects adds a further jump-start to the creativity enhancement I’ve experienced with the other products, and really allows me to inject mood, feeling and tone into my images.

    Not for use within Photoshop

    I use Topaz a fair amount, especially BW Effects2 so looked forward to trying this.

    To use within PS, which I would always do, Topaz recommend reducing the memory PS uses, just so that this won’t crash. I ALWAYS use PS, whereas I would occasionally use this, so making PS slower is never going to be an option.

    I’m not sure how good the finished image is because I’ve never been able to get one (not even in standalone version)

    I use a new laptop with 16gb RAM but only 1gb on graphics card – something else I’m not going to change.

    Sorry Topaz, this just doesn’t work for me – even if it was a free upgrade to my suite

    Was this helpful?

    Thank you for your feedback!

    • Aggpup,
      We’re sorry you’re having issues with Texture effects. It is a very graphics intensive program and as such requires a good bit of Dedicated Graphics memory in order to function. Also Photoshop tends to be pretty Ram hungry but if you look in the settings for adjusting the amount of dedicated ram they recommend 3.5-4.5 gigs. So if you have 16, you should be able to reduce this without experiencing a slowdown in Photoshop. Hopefully this helps.

    Re: Memory Intensive

    I just downloaded and started exploring TextureEffects, and although truly a wonder child for texture addicts, for its first venture out of the chute, I can’t help but note how much memory it demands. It REALLY EATS a lot of memory, folks

    Topaz recommends resetting your Pshop CPU usage down to 25%, which for some, is just not a reality. I myself could not keep it from crashing (in both the standalone and in Pshop), until I made sure my video card drivers were updated, and I lowered the Pshop CPU to 25%). After that, yes, it quit crashing, but it’s still sluggish, and still buggy with scrolling and preview panes. I’m sure these will be ironed out with future updates/releases.

    If you have the firepower to run this thing (which means it’s designed only for 64bit machines), the developers at Topaz have put a LOT of thought into this program. What is especially gravy is the fact that yes, you can import your own textures into the program, and you can stack as many textures as you like. One caveat: it does NOT create it’s own layer: make a duplicate layer of your photo first before opening Effects in Photoshop.

    Another great product.

    I built my machine to be able to work with photos of all sizes. I have used quite a few photo related software products and have to say all Topaz products are currently superior to everything else on the market and Texture Effects is no exception. Easiest to use, reliable outcomes, never crashes or stalls on me. I like to be able to quickly create an image effect and goof around in PS any longer than need be, and Topaz allows you to do just that.

    Excellent Editing Capabilities

    I’m very impressed. The new interface is very easy to use and I love some of the new masking tools. The ability to layer up multiple effects, even multiple effects of the same type is excellent. There is so much flexibility in this package that it will take weeks to explore.

    Some of the features I find most useful are presets and the browser but the ability to tweak these further or develop your own presets for future use.
    The spot masking tool and the way that each effect has its own mask so that you can control where the effect is applied.

    The range of effects such as Blur, Diffusion, Colour Overlay, Textures, Dust and Scratches is excellent and well thought out. It’s also nice to see that I can import more of these effects as I also ready have a large library that I have previously created in Photoshop.

    This is a real time saver for me and takes away hours of experimentation and guess work in Photoshop. It’s a real winner that bridges the gap between traditional photography and digital art. The only negative I would say is that the name “Texture Effects” suggests this is just about blending textures. I think this totally undersells what the application is capable of – but I can’t think of a better name.

    Well done.

    Slick and very versatile addition to the Topaz stable.

    After three days of using Topaz Texture Effects I can say that it works remarkably well. It’s a super slick plugin with a very easy to use interface underpinned by some powerful processing power. From a simple select, click, and done workflow to a feature laden creative control mode, everything works smoothly to allow you to work swiftly or alternatively spend time exploring the infinite creative options this plugin provides.

    The ability to add your own, textures and overlay files to the library is a real winner.

    Great said of tools. Do layer masking without knowing layers

    Textures off course, color tinting, light leaks dust of any color etc. Each effect is a layer with easy masking and its own blending mode. Dip into a bunch of presets. Look at the layers in the presets learn from it, alter it by changing, deleting or adding effects. Great videos. At least one step-by-step tutorial shows you where all icons are and what they do.

      If you have been experiencing issues running the Texture Effects application, please uninstall the current version of the application that you are using, and head to the Texture Effects Downloads Page(http://www.topazlabs.com/downloads-textureeffects) and download the latest version of the installer you would like to use.

    Almost overwhelming!

    There is so much to Texture Effects that the learning curve is very shallow. The initial presets give so many choices, then the sliders give even more control and options for the selected preset.

    Then, you can combine Texture Effects with other plugins, such as Simplify and the painter effects. The webinars are great to get started and helps steepen the learning curve.

    What’s Great? So many choices!
    What’s Not so Great? So many choices! But time and play will fix that.

    Textures on Steroids

    Wow, you just have to really question why Topaz would give anyone as much power as Texture Effects has. Talk about pinpoint control. If this thing had a stick shift it would probably be about a 50 speed on the floor. You can do absolutely anything you want with any texture. Not only does it do that but it also gives you the ability to blend textures within a textured layer. You have to be careful not to overdo it. Because you will and you will love every minute of it.

    great... fantastic potential... but !

    have had a few crashes…
    I love making Grunge images and add load of texture overlays to my images all the time… BUT I cant seem to find a normal “Film type Grain” texture… (probably cant see the wood for the trees) still along way to explore as I have only had it a few days…
    Screen Previews takes some time to come up. (I am dealing with Images of 500meg, but my 27″ iMac & Photoshop handle them fast enough.
    NO simple to Step Backwards, out of gallery view “Browse” (needs a good quick step back arrows or something similar, like Safari forward & reverse arrows. I find the X cancel button un-nerving, as I always associate that with cancelling out a program…)
    cryptic menu icons, would love to see a “Roll over” text explanation occasionally.
    “Favorited” ???? I know that means Favourites, but come on… this changing the english language is confusing… not all countries speak american or spanglish… haha (but that is An Australian vs US language thing I can live with)

    Major thing however… I have a 27″ iMac, and yet I still have to have lots of ‘drop down’ menus, which means loads of scrolling, when I can easily fit several columns on the screen comfortable… (so I have a load of wasted space, and yet still have to scroll.) and no options, and even then the text is way larger than the similar Photoshop text that I can easily read, even with my (aged) eyesight + Glasses… when will I get preferences to change that.

    and all on one side, the Right, to me image… so the other side of the screen to image is empty… (photoshop puts tools to the left and the right etc, and am well used to that. (yes I am not used to this program, but will work on that)

    and if I drop them all down I could be ages searching fro what I am looking for to modify. (Buttons.???)

    as an Ex-professional photographer I prefer a 18% grey (mid neutral) screen background… (photoshop and other s allow me to set the screen background, as a dark grey can change my “perception” of how light or dark the image is…

    more in a week when I have gotten used to it… and learnt how to add my own photoshop screen over lay textures with in it…

    Another Great Filter from Topaz

    Topaz Texture effects lets you add that extra pop to your photos to make them stand out among others. Although Texture didn’t work on my laptop at first, the software techs at Topaz logged onto my machine and was able to determine the issue and correct it in no time. The only minor issues with Effects is that it slow in “saving” the processed photo; and currently I have to use it as a stand alone rather as a plugin (that was being addressed for my specific type of laptop). I would recommend Topaz Texture to others, as well as their other filters.

    Great, but...

    While Texture Effects makes adding textures to photos easier that through Photoshop, for example, it is not as easy to use as suggested, particularly in downloading external textures. Also, my version does not permit me to scroll down the specific textures and see a preview, although that function does work by using the arrows on my Mac.

    • R McPeak,
      We have recently completed an update to Texture Effects, which resolves many issues reported to us.
      If you have been experiencing issues running the Texture Effects application, please uninstall the current version of the application that you are using, and head to the Texture Effects Downloads Page(https://www.topazlabs.com/downloads-textureeffects) and download the latest version of the installer you would like to use. Please know that all downloads contain the complete application, with all features. The size difference is due to the number of included resources – so if you have trouble downloading the Full installer, please try the Mini installer. Once you have downloaded the new installer, run it to install the new build that contains the fixes listed above. If you’re still having issues just message us at help@topazlabs.com and we’ll work with you to get it solved.

    A great addition to the wonderful topaz image manipulation collection.
    I love experimenting with all those possibilities and the variations that
    are available for every image I load. Along with Topaz Restyle and Impressionist, they are an indispensable tool in my daily work on photos
    and other images.

    Bravo Topaz!

    Crashes on save

    As I understand it, texture effects was written to take advantage of newer graphic cards. My mac (2008 Mac Pro) can’t be upgraded to the newer cards. Every time I try to save a file, the software crashes. It is unusable at this point. Time for a new Mac? I don’t know but check the specs on yours before you buy it.

    • Jerome,
      Sorry to hear your machine didn’t meet the specs for Texture Effects, it relies heavily on the OpenGL3.2 standard (as noted on the system requirements at the bottom of the product page) or higher as it utilizes the toolset to create a lot of it’s effects, the standard is from mid 2010 so if you have an older machine or components you will need to upgrade your hardware to be compatible. More information on compatible cards here: https://support.topazlabs.com/hc/en-us/articles/213692577-Topaz-Labs-and-OpenGL

    I love the new Topaz Texture Effects because of its ease of ease and the hundreds of textures offered. Each texture has a set of adjustments so you can be as subtle as you want or as bold as you want. I listened to the 1 hr. webinar and started using it immediately! I love other Topaz effects but Texture Effects is one of my favorites now! I have already recommended it to friends!

    So many options

    Texture Effects has so many options for adding textures.But other than a huge library, once you hit on an effect you’ve built from all the program’s features and effects, you can save “your” effect/texture for future use with a single click. Texture Effects also lets you share your effect files with other users online, and to import theirs and save them for your own use. I’m still learning what this program has to offer, but I would highly recommend it other users.

    Texture Effects

    I actually purchased this program before watching the video. Only because of there reputation. I have something like 10-12 other programs of there’s and they are all good. They are all easy to learn and like wise with this one. Its always good to watch the videos because I always pick up somethings I didn’t figure out. Then there’s the videos you have in your archives just incase you forgot something.
    I have been with Topaz for about 6yr. There is nobody else. They are so good at what they do. I have been doing this for almost 50yr and have a Master Degree. So I know what I am talking about. I am not giving my name because its not about me. Its all about the Product’s, the Satff, Teachers, and those that are behind the scenes that makes this company what it is.

    How many stars would I give Topaz Texture Effects?

    I would give Texture Effects exactly 1-Gazillion stars. For those who were not good at math, that’s a “1” with a gazillion zeros after it. And that’s after just about a week. Once I really get into it, I can foresee raising that number to 9 Gazillion. That’s a 9 with …. well you get the picture. Texture Effects has taken my otherwise good (my opinion I assure you) photos and made them even “Gooder.” Seriously, the software is nothing short of a giant leap forward for me. Topaz’s webinars are also deserving of bravos. Brilliant, informative, entertaining, and best of all, they sent me back to the computer with a new found creative spirit. In case you’re uncertain about this review, I like it.

    I love the filters. But...

    The filters on this program are terrific and I enjoy going through them and working with them. My only complaint is that the Topaz programs are getting bigger and draw more resources with each new one. To some with amazing computers, this is not an issue. If you marginally can keep up with laptops, then the resources drag. But, hey, I want my images to have a new flair at times and this program gives it to me. My only other complaint is that it makes the images blurry when blown up and trying to sell such an image can be problematic.

    Some Dissapointments

    Review of Topaz (plugin/freestanding)
    I have a number of Topaz filters and the effects texture Effects produces are quite similar to effects produced by others. Sometimes I feel that “more is less”, when it comes to filters, and find that when one buys a new product that filters are applied in an in appropriate manner.

    Lots of potential

    Just installed Topaz Texture Effects. I’ve done some experimentation with it and see a great deal of potential as I get to know the plugin. This should be an interesting plugin to work with. I can see where the Topaz Labs team given a lot of thought and work developing such an interesting program. The only glitch I ran into was when I first tried to open the plugin it would stop working. With some great help from the Topaz Lab people I discovered that it was because my video card wasn’t up to date. As soon as I went online and updated it Texture Effects worked perfectly.

    Makes adding effects so simple.

    While it is possible to achieve most of the effects by other means, these are far more cumbersome and time consuming. A few improvements are still needed to the plug-in, such as the ability to cancel a step without going back to the beginning, but these are few in the context of a plug in with so many features. As with their other plug-ins, the Topaz team has achieved a very high standard with this valuable new addition to their range.

    Perfect tool for me

    I’m a texture challenged photographer. I look at some of my images and think to myself that ‘this image needs something’ but I’m not sure what. Some can look at their images and ‘see’ a texture effect. Me, I need some prodding!

    So Texture Effects leads me to the texture for my image! Love the community too! Seeing what others are doing is a big help too!

    I’ve seen comments about slow speed and no integration but I have no such comments. The speed is perfectly OK on my PC. (10 times better than the new ON1 software.) It integrates perfectly with Lightroom CC, my primary tool.

    I’ve also seen comments stating that Topaz Impression is the same thing as Texture Effects and I completely disagree. I love them both. Thanks Topaz.

    When I take a image into TextureEffects via PS no presets are available to see when I try to create my own adjustments I’m unable to select any options as it flicks out immediately and selects whatever it likes. I have downloaded twice and still unable to get any use out of the product. I have tried with PS CC2015 & PS C6.. not sure where the issue is as all other Topaz products have worked. I can see the product has great potential if I could get it to work.

      Before you open the program as a plugin in Photoshop it needs to be opened as a standalone product in order to build those libraries that PS needs to see our effects. Try that and comment back and let me know if it works. Might just change your review 😀

    Yep still 5 stars but the “however” in the title is the fact I am concerned that we shall now see endless straight clones of someone else’s talent. This product should be used to speed up workflows or give ideas and get the creative juices flowing. It should not replace personal artistic interpretation.

    Easy to Use, but a bit limited

    I have use most of your applications and have been a user for several years. I have been using On 1 texture & preset functionalities for over a year. So I have a medium of comparison. The Topaz Textures program is very intuitive as are your other products, requiring a minimal learning curve. I especially like the ability to contribute and download from the Topaz Textures Community.

    What would improve the product even more, would be the products ability to import and use 3rd party presets & textures. I have not tried to import any of my 3rd party textures, or presets of which I have many such as Nicoleasy & Photomorphis. On one of your webinars I asked if I could import presets & textures fm these providers, but was told that Topaz Textures does not support 3rd party textures/presets.

    I also download graphics and textures from stock photo companies that I use when working with textures such as Graphic Stock and others.

    I think that these capabilities would be beneficial to your users, and I know I would use your product more often with the additional capabilities in part for this reason and, because your software is more intuitive…at least for me it is.

    This is a very good product with some features that allow considerable flexibility. What I miss are some Photoshop tools that I regularly use in conjunction with textures. I find blend if, levels, and curves useful in applying textures, or parts of textures that are absent in Texture Effects. With the addition of tools like these Texture Effects would be great. Still, I am very happy with this product and applaud Topaz Labs for their fine efforts.

    Packed with creative options!

    I am really enjoying this new product from Topaz. I have used textures in my photoshop edits for years, but am enjoying applying them in this whole new way. The program runs smoothly on my MacBook- and I love the interface (similar to Impression). I like being able to modify the presets to my heart’s content, save favorites, save my own presets, and download presets from other users. I haven’t tried uploading textures from my computer, but will probably do that as well. Really fun, robust program!

    Exceeded Expectations

    I have to admit, I was a little frustrated when I downloaded and tried to use Topaz Textures without reading the directions first. My bad. I didn’t bother with the Trial version, as I have been consistently impressed with all the other Topaz products I own (that would be all of them). So I was a bit disappointed, but committed now that I own it, so I had to learn 🙂

    When I took the time to learn how to install and use Topaz Texture Effects, the results were “jaw dropping” beautiful…..I use Textures almost exclusively now.
    I highly recommend Texture Effects! Thank you for another great product…..
    Sincerely,
    Dean Fey

    I don’t care much for the effects in this group of textures. I prefer for a photo to look like what it did at the capture moment. I guess I like the Old Western best of the group and Color Blast might work in some situations but basically I prefer the original capture if that was done correctly. I will say that Topaz is easy to use and might work for people who enjoy applying textures to their photos. I normally do not do that.

    Preview textures easily

    I use textures frequently in my work and Texture effects gives me the opportunity to view the effect the overlays of color and textures will have. I can also import my own textures or overlay them in PS later. This cuts down my work time significantly as I get a very good idea of the direction I want to go quickly.
    I also use Adjust and Detail in conjunction with TTE

    I was very excited to have Topaz Texture Effects. And when it works it is fabulous . But it happens many times that the texture doesn’t work. The image turns in a black image and I have to restart my computer to fix it. So for the moment I don’t use it anymore, hoping op an update!

      We have recently released an update to fix some issues that our users were seeing with certain system configurations in Texture Effects that we believe may resolve your issue. I would try uninstalling Texture Effects entirely from your hard drive and re-installing the latest update from our Downloads Page:

    I was quite excited to try texture Effects, looked as if it was right up my creative alley. Alas, come to find out my system does not have enough dedicated memory to support it, and I am unable to upgrade my graphics card, so I will have to wait a few more years until I can afford a new computer. Colour me: bummed.

    Artistic Excellence

    Topaz Texture Effects is a pleasure to use. It easily makes the artistic rendering of, even poor, photos possible. The pre-defined settings usually make other adjustments unnecessary or minor. In a church setting it can improve the visual beauty of everything from a Bulletin to a meeting poster. A simple picture of the open front door can be transformed into an inviting work art. Thanks for your imaginative product.

    Topaz Texture Effects.

    Initially had a problem with the software. I contacted the technical folks and they responded quickly with a solution. The program runs like a champ and effects are very appealling so that I can change the mood of the photo from something very suttle to a more dramatic effect. Easy application and straight forward changes are easily applied.

    Useful for Examining New Possibilities

    Although it takes a little time to learn how all of the various features work, Textures looks like it is going to be a very useful program. Like Topaz Restyle and Impressions, it provides a good way to expand one’s thinking about alternative ways to process individual photos. It still has a few glitches, but I’m sure these will be worked out over time.

    Some of my concerns are relatively small, but hopefully will be resolved in future versions.

    As with Impressions, Topaz has chosen to have one’s new files open up in a category of stacked Effects called “Featured” rather than immediately providing access to “All Effects.” Fortunately, it doesn’t take as long for them to load as it does in Impressions, but it is an annoyance. I can understand why they might want to have a “Featured” category for those who are new to the product, but why can’t this be just another category and allow the program to open up into “All Effects” for experienced users who just want to get on with the process of using the program?

    While Topaz has provided a number of interesting stacked Effects that are searchable by their individual names, for some reason they decided not to name the individual Textures, thereby making them unsearchable. This is a real pain for anyone who wants to build their own Stacked Effects. True, one can build a category called “My Textures” but this can quickly can grow fairly large. It would be a lot easier if each Texture had a unique name that could be searched.

    For some strange reason, in the latest version (1.0.1), one cannot arrow over the Textures (as one can with the various Effects). Instead one must mouse over or click on each Texture individually to see how it interfaces with one’s file. In fact, if one does use the arrow key you are automatically moved to the first Stacked Effects in the Featured menu.

    All in all, I think the program has a lot of potential once some of the glitches have been worked out.

It is really easy to use and you can just pick a preset or create one. You can also check on loads more online. So easy to download an effect from the community. When I did that, I couldn’t believe it was all on my computer! Great program and something I will use all the time. Nothing bad to say about it!

    It’s an easy way to add a multitude of texture effects. Much easier than doing all the effects manually. However, I can only use it on one of my computers with the best NVidia graphics card. My photos are 6000 x 4000 and they are too big for the intel graphics cards in all 4 of my laptops. The cards crash with every save action. I have to reduce the pics to 3700 wide before the laptops can handle the processing.

    • Danise,
      Sorry to hear you’re having speed issues with Texture Effects, it relies heavily on the OpenGL3.2 standard (as noted on the system requirements at the bottom of the product page) or higher as it utilizes the toolset to create a lot of it’s effects. We doe recommend having 1-2 Gb’s of Video Memory in order to have the best experience in Texture Effects, of course larger images will require more resources as well.

      More information on compatible cards here: https://support.topazlabs.com/hc/en-us/articles/213692577-Topaz-Labs-and-OpenGL

    Only for the uninitiated

    I have so much experience doing texture effects myself, I don’t really know why I bought this product. Should have done the free trial first. Maybe I thought it would be quicker and easier, but actually just as much work to get the exact look I want (and I always want exactly the look I want 😉 My extensive collection of textures is way better than the ones included here. Would only recommend this to someone like photographers who want a quick “arting up” of their shots and who don’t know how to do texture work themselves. To those with lots of texture experience, just stick with DIY.

    Textures has an abundance of options for creating your special image. It offers an easy to use interface. As with other Topaz products such as Glow, Impressions my only wish is if there were a way to recall , by name, a specific selection made for an image, somewhat like the “History” function in LR.
    More often than not I’m wanting to know this when I’m scrolling through any number of choices looking for the ‘right one or 2 or 3 … ‘ candidates that might work for a particular photo – like the ‘Snapshot” feature in LR

    Hi. Texture Effects is brilliant,very easy to use, Just read the manual or watch a tutorial,and your away.
    After applying a texture,the sliders are great at adjusting the after outlook.
    You can add extra effects to ones already applied ,its not quite like visible layers ,just hit the add button,and apply another effect.
    there are quite a lot already installed,but its easy to install your own textures,and under individual headings.

    I’ve been using Topaz filters for over 3 years. This is the best module they have done. I love adding texture and this makes it ten times easier. Not only that but it allows you to try dozens of effects quickly. I can use my own textures or thousands available online.

    Great Program

    I have all of the Topaz photo editing programs and I think Topaz Texture Effects is one of the very best ones. It allows me to add dramatic textures to my photos and adjust them in a variety of ways so I can achieve that special look I am after. And, it could not be more simple and intuitive to master. I would highly recommend it to my friends….

    Great effects

    Amazing range of effects, each of which allow user to totally change emotional tone of image. And, after having settled on an effect,may change it further to accentuate or minimize different aspects. Additionally, it is possible to save the effect you created as an action! Definitely worthwhile.

    My, but this is a fun tool

    There is an amazing amount of power here. The most clever thing that has been done in this program is enable multiple effects, layered, with the ability to repeat types of effects. Just as flexible is PS in the way you put things together. I am just getting started, but I see this as being a “must have” tool for my fine art work. I am looking forward to spending quality time with each individual component so I learn how to get the most out of the software.

    I really love Topaz Labs plug-ins.

    Applying textures in Elements can be laborious. Texture Effects makes it much simpler and easier to mask and preview options of which there are many. It also provides more options to adjust the effect. If I spend more time working on an image, its because I have a hard time selecting the one I like best.

    Topaz Texture Effect fills the niche that was missing in some of my captures. One can “Topaz to an extreme” but with the right choice of image, with the special feeling in it that you are struggling to express how you felt when first making the shot ,it is the answer.

    I think the concept of including the Community to share their Textures is a brilliant idea as we all learn from each other. Well done Topaz for this excellent programme that compliments the full suite of Topaz I already own. Although early days, I am enjoying the easy process of creating textures as part of my editing workflow.

    A Fast Way to Explore New Looks

    There are a lot of possibilities here. Even if you are adept at doing this sort of thing on your own you’ll find a lot of assets and presets that will help you try out many looks rapidly. You can share your presets with the community. Can you introduce your own assets (other than the base photo) into the plugin? I’m not sure, but that would be good, as I was a little disappointed with one or two of the border assets that looked to me like they were just made with a Photoshop grass or leaf scatter brush. There are a few textures I would never use, and a few I wish there were more of. But you can probably say that about anything, and the ones I dislike may very well be the ones you love. The variety is already large, but I hope users can extend the assets, or at least obtain asset updates from Topaz in future. All in all, 4 stars.

    Has issues working with a NAS

    If your image files are saved on a NAS it will allow you to open and work on them BUT NOT SAVE THEM!!!

    If your personal texture files that you want to import are saved on a a NAS it won’t allow you to import them – this is solved with mapping the drive.

    given that textures are quite large files, the fact that NAS storage with photographers must be quite common these days, I find these issues perplexing and annoying and limiting my ability to use it

    Simplifies adding texture to images

    I generally don’t add a lot of effects to my photos. I do mostly landscape and wildflower photography and process them “straight” although I occasionally like to play with some images. Texture Effects simplifies adding textures, borders and other effects to an image. I have yet to manage to import any of my own saved textures to the filter. It crashes every time I try. Perhaps once I get that bug worked out I’ll use it more. If I had a friend who was adding textures or borders to images frequently I would definitely recommend this filter.

    Excellent Preset's to spice up your shots

    Having just purchased Texture Effects, I was initially thinking I may get a few examples where I could use this but have found it to be great at spicing up a shot that mat not be exactly as you envisioned. The presets are great and already the user community is fast adding to these. Of course you wouldn’t overuse it on all shots but it can really give some new life to something that needs a bit more kick (or something different). Another great tool from Topaz to have in your kit bag.

    ACDSEE 9 ultimate users will find it works well as a plugin or external editor.

    Great program. It will come close to Clarity and DeNoise as my favourite plugins. I never batch process. I develop each shot I want to keep individually, some times just DeNoise and a touch of Clarity sometimes several passes with clarity to apply very specific toning and contrast. This plugin suits me and my individualistic style brilliantly. It allows me to enhance and display in a new way, but at the same time apply the setting to other images if I require.

    GUI is good enough for "playing with"

    however i don;t find it practical for real use in a real workflow. this comment applies as well to the Topaz ReStyle. the user interface is not practical and user friendly. in ReStyle i have not seen anywhere the name of the patch currently used for instance. one always have to memorize the name and that’s quite unefficient (not to say boring). apart from that i do like the results one gets when using them!

    Inspirational

    Another great new product from Topaz. It’s easy to use, there are lots of features that put the user firmly in control and I particularly like the Community Presets which are available. Where these include textures that don’t come with the default textures those new textures seem to get put into a Downloaded textures category so that they could be used again on other photographs. This is why it’s important to only upload to the Community presets that contain textures which are either your own or come with the program. Uploading textures which have been purchased could infringe copyright. Since this program (and Impressions) came out I have been revisiting my old slides. These programs have given them a whole new lease of life. The ability to use your own or purchased textures is a very welcome feature as is the masking for individual layers within a preset and the preset as a whole.

    It is great that with the release of Texture Effects enthusiastic and detailed third party reviews have been quick off the mark and I can especially praise those from 2 Little Owls Studio and Blake Rudis in particular. There are other good ones as well. This is a product well worth having if you want to give your pictures that something extra and make them rise above mundane record shots. It is vital however to check the system requirements to ensure your computer and graphics card are powerful enough. The trial should then be downloaded just to make sure before you buy. If you have an artistic mind then Texture Effects and Impressions are two programs just for you.

    The use of textures can play a huge part in adding to the punch of a photograph. Having the variety of textures and multiple controls over the administering of those textures within Texture Effects is invaluable!

    A Long Overdue FX App
    I sure there are many applications which can be used to create image backgrounds and the like. However there is not one that provides the gamut of texture options that Topaz Textures provides.
    To start with there are 7 categories of presets each with 20 plus preset textures (depending on preset)… but that only scratches’ the surface. The real mother lode is found in the Add an Adjustment Area…
    …Where there are14 groups of texture/effect adjustment tools (Diffusion, Edge Blur, Edge Exposure, Film Grain, Posterize, Split Tone, Vignette, Borders, Color Overlay, Double Exposure, Dust/Scratches, Light Leak Texture + Basic Adjustment…) which can be used singly or in a stack to create custom texture, tone, and/or lighting effects to add the Master to your masterpiece(s).
    And that only scratches the surface of the creativity you can unleash with Topaz Texture.

    A must to have.

    Hi, it’s a wonderful program that gathers all the tools I need without leaving it. Those smarts choices you offer to building effects with different adjustments are the best on the market today. It is user friendly and powerful.
    If I may challenge you (because I know you’re good!) is to find a way to get to my textures banks without loading it in the program. Because I have a lot of them and it’s copying what I already have, it’s double up the space. I know that I have to load them for the fast instant preview (very nice and fast), but it’s a challenge and I like to whish!
    But as it is, for me you are ahead over all the other. It’s a must to have and at a good price.

    I have used texture effects a few times and it is a simple solution to a complex problem. The textures are good but limited, but with a bit of tweaking I get very useful results. Often I layer additional textures and effects to the image and have produced some nice images. Topaz Labs updates their products and provides links to their updates, so that you always have the latest software, and I really appreciate their approach to business.

    Excellent New Edition to Topaz

    I like the wide variety of textures available and that you can download or add your own to the list. I like that we are able to tweak the textures to fit more closely to our needs. I believe the quality of the textures are excellent.

    It’s a nice program to the edition of the Topaz plugins. I have found their products to be very easy to use and a great asset to the work I do, Topaz Effects is no different. It’s worth the money and your time to try it out.

    Great variety and a lot of options

    I have been a fan of Topaz filters/plug-ins for several years. I especially use B&W effects a lot. I have the complete set. I love to add textures, but doing it manually in Photoshop is sometimes inconsistent. I was excited when this was created.
    Let me list the Pro’s”
    Wide variety of textures and effects, I’ve just begun to explore them.
    Ability to manipulate the one you choose and change easily, including changing only some aspects of it (which I really like).
    Seeing the impact of the layer style used as you slide your cursor down them
    The mask is color aware (works fairly well)

    There are only a few Con’s that I think they will fix with updates
    The program is “glitchy.” still, here are a couple of examples:
    *When I go to it as a plug-in from Photoshop sometimes it opens within Photoshop and sometimes it doesn’t, it opens independently outside of the program.
    * The community textures previews load very slowly and on a few occasions I’ve had some issues getting them to show up on the screen
    * It is very slow to open as a plug-in. I have an i7 processor and quite a lot of RAM, but you will sit and wait for it.
    * This is an issue with all of the Topaz Plug-ins, which isn’t the case with several other plug-in providers I also use. I wish when you go to the plug-in it would create its own layer. It’s always two steps, create a duplicate layer then go to Topaz. I don’t have to do that with the others.

    If it weren’t for these, it would be a 5 star Plug-In I think these will get resolved over updates. Overall, however, I would definitely recommend this to other users. It’s creative, it’s easy and it does some wonderful things.

    I got wonderful results right off the bat. The interface was familiar; so I could jump right in. Once a preset is chosen it is so easy and intuitive to modify it to my liking. Looking forward to downloading content from the cloud (and uploading my textures !).

    Not only does Texture Effects offer an array of fantastic settings, but I can customize or create my own so easily, so fast, with infinite possibilities. To quote someone else “It’s like being a kid with a new box of crayons.” It is actually one of my favorite Topaz utilities and one of the best photo software items I have ever purchased.

    • Faye,

      We have recently completed an update to Texture Effects, which resolves many issues reported to us.
      If you have been experiencing issues running the Texture Effects application, please uninstall the current version of the application that you are using, and head to the Texture Effects Downloads Page(http://www.topazlabs.com/downloads-textureeffects) and download the latest version of the installer you would like to use. Please know that all downloads contain the complete application, with all features. The size difference is due to the number of included resources – so if you have trouble downloading the Full installer, please try the Mini installer. Once you have downloaded the new installer, run it to install the new build that contains the fixes listed above. If you’re still having issues just message us at help@topazlabs.com and we’ll work with you to get it solved.

    Awesome Creative Applications to Your Photographs!

    I have worked with texture layers in Photoshop Elements, but the results with Texture Effects takes the creativity to a new level !
    Adding by downloading my own library of textures within Texture Effects only enhances your creative possibilities. I took two ‘mundane’ windmill photos from several years ago and created compositions which were beyond my expectations when using Texture Effects. I never realized the possibilities as to how the photos could look until I scrolled thru all the available effects that are readily available within the software!
    I own the entire Topaz Collection, and next to Clarity and Impression, this new program will be a Favorite!

    Thank you for your feedback!

    • Sorry to hear you’re having speed issues with Texture Effects, it relies heavily on the OpenGL3.2 standard (as noted on the system requirements at the bottom of the product page) or higher as it utilizes the toolset to create a lot of it’s effects. We do recommend having 1-2 Gb’s of Video Memory in order to have the best experience in Texture Effects, of course larger images will require more resources as well.

    What prevents me to allocate five stars is the fact that, at present, Texture Effects does not work with PhotoFX on the Mac. This is a pity as it prevents a seamless workflow across the two flagship products of TopazLabs.

    versatile and controllable

    I writing this review solely based on the main part of Texture Effects that I use, and this is the importing and application of my own texture. Because I enter a lot of salons and competitions it means that the entire image must use original material, therefore the import function is paramount. The import is easy and once done the textures are used the same way as the others. I find the plugin to be very handy and more controllable than simply using PS, it also speeds up the workflow. It’s a value for money plugin, however its not essential, you can do the same thing without the plugin. In saying that, I would recommend it.

    Boosts Creativity

    Love adding artistic atmosphere and feeling to my photos. Topaz Texture Effects is spectacular in boosting creativity. Does a fabulous job in allowing you to easily visualize many different textural looks. You can also use the program to explore edge borders, vignettes, and other effects. Most importantly it permits the loading of your own texture and border resources. The program is not only useful but tons of fun and a snap to learn.
    I do have suggestions for improvement in future versions. I have a lot of my own textures and loading of my textures and borders was quite slow. Additionally once the textures are loaded into a category, the categories cannot be reordered. This is somewhat limiting in searching through a large texture library. I would like to see faster loading of textures and the ability to sort the texture library by alphabetically by name.
    One final note is that unfortunately Topaz Labs does not include a phone number for technical support. Instead a painfully slow email only system is utilized which can lead to considerable frustration and lengthy delays in achieving resolution.
    On the whole I do love the Topaz Texture Effects program and would purchase it again in a heartbeat!!!

    One click easy

    Although Tex Eff. is quicker than Impression, having to wait for preset’s to load before being able to select one is annoying. I would like to see a bit more in- depth instructions. I would love a comparison mode, and slider reset to default instead of zero would be convenient. I would like mask sliders to work in real time and to be able to view the mask alone to refine. And maybe a layers palette to see each effect as it relates to other effects and the overall image.
    Overall a fun program, I will be looking forward to future refinements.

    Really enjoying this program ...

    Texture Effects is an easy, intuitive way of creatively transforming photos. The moment you open the program you start seeing your shots in significantly different ways, and that gets the creative juices flowing. It is surprisingly easy to modify the presets, create your own effects, use the layers, and the way the masks are set up is simple and extremely useful. The jury is still out on how useful the community sharing feature will be (the potential is for it to be overwhelming) — getting in the habit of saving your own effects, however, will quickly create your own library. Along with Adjust and Clarity, this is a ‘go to’ Topaz product.

I do like the results, but there is no undo button and you have to save and exit but not exit by itself. Not intuitive. The set up is so limited it’s like you have dressed up an old filter.

    Topaz went in a new direction with its interface, and it takes some getting used to. There are so many texture choices, many of which are useful and impressive, but the bulk of them are over the top. It will take time and practice to reveal its true potential, but for my workflow so far, it’s a ‘niche’ plugin, as opposed to, say, Topaz Adjust, which I consider essential.

It comes with numerous presets, a lot of witch I will most likely never use. I will not use it as much as I do with other Topaz products. Like with Impression and Glow you have to have the right photo to make it work. I also have the complete collections of NIK and onOne products and purchased these before discovering Topaz plugins.

    FUN, fun fun

    Wow… this brings a whole new aspect to my photography. I have used textures before, but always hated the long process of picking one and applying in Photoshop, only to pick another and not like that either. This is SO easy. Plenty of built-ins AND I can add my own. I’ll probably spend more time exploring, but the easy nature will be a blessing. Thanks, Topaz Labs!

    Great Fast Results

    It is so great to use a product where the available results can be viewed
    directly and altered easily instead of having to visualise and imagine everything before attempting to work hard for the effects.

    A Must for Texture users - A must for someone wanting to try textures

    Using textures use to be just a popular choice in adding effect to the photo. It was a supporting part in the creative process. Now it is often the main character in the photo in order to turn the photo from ordinary to terrific!

    The best part in using textures is the results we see after application. Sometimes disappointing sometimes exciting but the key is the ability to QUICKLY see those results and discard them.

    Topaz has this down perfectly! Plus permitting MULTIPLE textures to be applied quickly just makes the possibilities endless. Not to mention the ways of blending each layer creating even more possibilities.

    Just so everyone knows. My age is 69, never sold a photo, been taking my own pictures since 2009 and had no idea before 2009 that people did something to photos. So you can be sure no one would come to me for a photo shoot and Topaz and I have no association!

    So if such a beginner found it useful I am sure in the hands of the pro’s this is great and for the beginner it is easy to use.

    Still Exploring

    This is an enormous trove of textures and such fun to play with. I have always been a straight photographer. No effects or artificial lighting but after discovering Topaz products I have discovered what I was missing. Texture Effects completes my collection. It is very easy to use which can be a drawback since I will sit there for an hour or more scrolling through all the choices and not get other things done. But it is a really neat program.

    Awesome addition to TopazLabs' stable of special plugins

    Topaz Texture Effects is a fun and very useful texture generator, managing all the steps and then some that you would (or do) use to enhance your images: e.g. a large library of textures and lighting effects, blend modes, and a boatload of sliders. It has many features, and I’m just beginning to find and testy them, alone or in combination.

    I have always been a fan of TopazLabs and their unique approach to image enhancement and modification. I own them all, and in my view TopazLabs has done it again with texture effects.

    Early Days

    I have only had Texture Effects for a few days so can neither be effusive of too critical.
    Downloading was a bit of an issue. The link in my account never worked correctly (WIN) so I finally downloaded a trial version and entered my activation code into this copy.
    The user interface in improved over other Topaz products and the view of the original image appears accurately most of the time which it generally fails to do in the other Topaz products I use.
    Like other Topaz products (and this may be an issue with Canon sensors rather than Topaz) you can introduce some repeating background patterns to some images especially in the sky (these patterns are elsewhere but are obscured by detail).
    Like Adjust it is a good product to save an image that just misses on exposure or focus. In fact in some ways this is like the next version of Adjust.

    A Great New Set Of Tools!

    How often do you get a set of actual new photo adjustment tools? Rather than re-branded and renamed tools tweaked over the years, Topaz offers a fresh set of creative options for the artistic photographer.
    As with most Topaz offerings, this is simple to understand and use the first time you open up the Texture Effects software. It doesn’t take long to master the many different looks and adjustment panels. Each panel, in turn, offers seemingly infinite tweaks and variations.
    If you are like me and are constantly on the lookout for new methods and treatments to express your photographic art, Texture Effects is for you!

    Fantastic, not really suitable for large scale pieces

    I only had a few opportunities to trial Texture Effects before the trial period expired. While I think Topaz Labs makes some of the best plug-ins around, and I’ve got most of them, I’m little on the fence about Texture Effects. Everything about it is up to Topaz Labs usual standards, however I think it’s best suited to smallish scale works. I sometimes work on larger scale pieces, anything from 70 x 90cm (27 x 35 inches), and while the effects fit without a problem, they also scale up. So a single scratch, for example, which normally would be quite small ends up being quite large, the result being that an effect can become a little overwhelming and look a bit ‘fake’ or ‘toyish’.
    Don’t get me wrong I think Texture Effects is fantastic (I hope Topaz update and apply some the UI design and features to some of it’s a other plug-ins), I still may get it for smaller scale work.

    Some great recipes/effects

    easy to use and because you can see whats its going to look like in the Right hand panes it maks it so easy to previsulise the effect
    then you can tweek the image with the sliders so you can modify it to to your taste before you export it back to Photoshop.
    works perfectly with cs6 and cc open quickly and because you can put it on another layer you can use layer masks to great effect as a whole or as part of an image. and of course you can then blend it to your liking with blendmodes and opacity
    excellent product.

    Texture Effects

    Excellent addition to the suite. I am still learning and have really enjoyed program so far. This is a very well designed program and is a great addition.

    Give yourself plenty of time to explore and try options. You can make so many different pleasing effects that it is hard to choose a favorite. Using textures and presets from the community as well as your own adds even more to an already versatile presets. Make sure you try borders, scratches and other available effects.

    Program did not work correctly with Photoshop and Lightroom initially. Quick fix from Customer Support resolved issues.

    For the developers: I would like a way to reset to the start of a preset rather than to no preset without having to back all the way out. Maybe I am missing how to do this. After making a bunch of changes I wanted to restart from the basic preset and could not find a way to do it.

    NOT THAT IMPRESSED

    I have always loved Topaz Labs software plugins for Photoshop so I was excited to see the Topaz Texture Effects become available. I paid $45 with a deep discount, and still I believe too much. I’m sorry but I just was not that impressed with the range of effects. Too bad because I absolutely love all the other plugins.

Have you tried looking through the Topaz Community, Texture Effects comes with over 130 included effects but the community allows you to download any other effects that other Topaz Users have shared. Including pros like Joel Wolfson and Blake Rudis. So with the community the number of effects you can get is really endless!

      However, If you’d like a refund you can message us at help@topazlabs.com and we’ll get that processed for you asap. Thank you for supporting Topaz Labs! We’re glad you love our other products.

    Not for me

    I did not like this product at all, It seemed like every other texture was the same, I have impressions, star effect and simplify, I rate them all very high, But not texture effects, It just was not for me, I do wish you had a paint out on impressions like simplify has, This is something I would have on any software I would design. I think this is a very important aspect for any photographers
    workflow. So they can be as creative as the software itself. Keep doing great work, But Texture Effects in my opinion, It is not. Thanks, Kevin Lane

    Describes the software simply

    I am enjoying it very much — in fact, it’s addictive. Best part is that it is so fast even on my older Mac computer. Tutorials very helpful, especially the one by John Barclay. I haven’t tried going to the community for assets but so far have been satisfied with what the program provides. I’ve gotten comfortable with this software much more quickly than with any of the other Topaz products. I’ve had one problem I can’t solve but have already contacted customer support. This software is fun to use.

    Almost Perfect

    In the short period of time that I have worked with TE I’ve come up with some excellent effects on some of my shots.
    Would really like to see an “undo” available.
    Also, when opening the “browse” section, I would like to be able to specify what effects I want to look at rather than both “Local and Community” loading by default. I don’t like spending a lot of time looking thru literally hundreds of presets needlessly.
    I work strictly out of PS where I first convert the image to a “smart object” and then add a “new copy via smart object” so that the image is now on its own layer. I then open the image in TE, make my selections and save back to PS. If I wish to make additional changes later back in TE I create another “new copy via smart object” so that image will now be on its own layer.

    Topaz wonder tool.

    Having most of the Topaz apps for quite while now and having built them up gradually over the years I find that are now getting a familiar formula. Select an effect, tweak it if you want, add a mask to the layer and control the bits you like of don’t like. With texture effects the mask is built in so use this instead. The only real small gripes I have are that the interface website to purchase Texture effects had a purchase button that did not change colour and very quickly changed the cursor after clicking once. Not very UX friendly to not indicate that you had actually purchased something and that the purchase was in process. The texture effects pan and zoom is a little clunky and could be better, like use the space bar and mouse/trackpad to pan, but revert back to the effect adjustment after releasing the space bar. As it is you have to select zoom to go in, select pan to pan around then select the effect control you want to adjust. Nice you can add your own textures though and a good range of textures already included. Liking the light leak panel.

    I am happy with Topaz Textures. I was asked if I would recommend this product to a friend. I have already and they have also purchased it.

    Graphics card doesn't support this product.

    I’m giving it a Yes recommendation for folks to at least try the Texture Effects free trial, as I assume it will help many of those interested in it.Your past products have been fun, useful and reliable, so I’m going to recommend the trial version based on my experience with those Topaz products. Ironically, I purchased it but then found out that my graphics card doesn’t support it. Sooooo… if and when I upgrade, I will at least have Texture Effects in my Photoshop “toolbox.” I have to somehow rate this, so I’m giving it a Fair rating because even without trying it, I’m sure I would have found several effects very useful.

    Much more than textures

    This is my new favorite Topaz module. The rich selection of local and community effects, combined with the ability to customize every aspect of the effects and create new ones, makes it a powerful tool. I would have given it 4.5 stars, but I can’t. The effect preview on the screen is not good. Too often, I like what I see, but once I apply the effect and get back to Photoshop, I get a very different image with artifacts that I didn’t see in the preview. To some extent, this problem exists with other Topaz modules.

    Great program, great price

    I have used topaz texture effects for a couple of weeks now and I am impressed with what it allows me to do. It is a valuable plug in for Lightroom and a steal at the current price. When I first download a new program, I try to use it without resorting to help or a digital manual and Texture Effects fits the bill for mostly ease of use. It has powerful features that really assist me when I wish to depart from a simple snapshot to a more artistic interpretation of an image. My only complaint is a universal one for most photo editing software. I wish it was more straightforward to install with Lightroom. Other than that quibble, I wholeheartedly recommend this product.

    Inspiration for Creativeness

    I love the ease and use of Topaz Texture Effects along with Photoshop. Whenever I feel like taking my photographs to a whole other level I can go to the filters menu drop down in PS and there is a whole playground to get new inspiration from. Your photo is on display while clicking on an effect to give you an idea what it will look like. Topaz then has adjustments available to give my artwork the tweaks I personally like to add for a whole new look. When I’m thrilled with the end result, then I can save it at that time. So no harm no foul is done to the photo while I’m playing with it.

    not relevant to my photographic style

    I have tried using it for several images, and studied some tutorials first. I start with an image, and Texture effects produces dramatic changes which do not appeal to me, so I keep working with the sliders till I like it. I sent the last image, original and modified with texture effects when I got done with it, to a friend, and the friend could not tell the difference. In other words, I spent 30 minutes using Topaz Texture effects to bring the originally modified image, back to the original image. I am deferring judgment to some indefinite future image. PS: almost all of my images are glamour portraits, so that may be why.

    Lots of options

    I would recommend for those who are inexperienced or comfortable with photo software that accommodates layers. Lightroom people might like it, for example. You can instantly see how a huge variety of presets will look on your image. That might be as far as you need to go, given the many many choices. But if you have something specific in mind, you can start from scratch. That’s not quite as intuitive and if you stack 3 or 4 assets on your image and decide you don’t like the 2nd one, you can’t just delete the layer like you can in other software. Hours of entertaining fun and a great introduction to textures, if you haven’t worked with them before. I like the standalone for quick and fun adjustments.

    Using Topaz Texture Effects

    I’ve only had the program for a short period of time so I really can only imagine its full potential. I have already seen facets of the program that are incredible, and I have just scratched the surface. On the downside, there have been several times that the program has failed or stopped responding in the middle of my working on a project causing me to start over. The other weakness that I’ve experienced is the extremely long time that it takes a finished piece to “resurface”. Perhaps this is because of the program’s size. But overall the program has tremendous capabilities and has been a thrill to use.

    Time Saver and Creativity Booster

    I bought Texture effects, not because I couldn’t do what it does on my own, but because I wanted a powerful tool that saved me time when I needed to add texture. And it does that perfectly… but it’s so much more. By being able to see at a glance so many variations, and extra effects, I found that my images became so much more than I could have done on my own. The fact that all of the different controls are so easy to adjust and manipulate means that I never have to settle for a “good enough” image. Now, every one is a Wow. Texture Effects, for me, is a program that I will never be without, from now on. And at this price… it’s a no brainer!

    one single glaring flaw....

    Texture Effects is fairly simple to use, and is quite effective at what it is designed for. There is, however, one glaring flaw. Evidently, it is incompatible with PhotoFXlab, the Topaz shell program for the suite. Use of Texture Effects requires exiting PhotoFXlab and accessong Texture Effects either stand alone or through Photoshop. This can completely disrupt workflow and removes a key benefit to use of FX.

    Easy to Achieve, Wonderful Effects

    I am new to Texture Effects, having recently downloaded it. And, I just reviewed the introductory training on the Topaz site. That being said, I jumped in and was immediately able to use the different effects to create a beautiful vintage landscape. And, the presets are a breeze to use, with great results. I have not yet joined the community, and so I cannot comment on how easy that is to use. I think there is a bit of a learning curve, as with all programs, until you can achieve the exact desired effect.

    Another excellent tool in the kit

    Once again TOPAZ has created an image enhancing tool that allows the creative juices to flow. TEXTURE EFFECTS are like icing on the cake to finalize an image, or add that little extra to bring out detail and depth. While each texture has it’s own character and specific feel the combination of textures with the other TOPAZ filters and tools provides an unlimited palate and creative fantasy land to be tapped into.

    Texture Effects gives you a second bite of the apple

    I send out a daily email of my photography to several hundred folks and I’ve been using Texture Effects for a few months now. Since using Texture Effects I’ve noticed a marked uptick in favorable comments about the photography, It gives me a second bite of the apple so to speak because I can take a mediocre image and turn it into something extraordinary. I’ve heard favorable comments on the frames, textures and lighting effects. I’d used all of Photoshop’s filters for years but got to the point I needed more choices so when I loaded Topaz filters, especially Texture Effects it took my photography into new exciting directions.

    A tool that fits a need

    Like the other Topaz Labs add ins (and most other vendor’s products) there is always a void that the niche product fits. In this case, Topaz Texture Effects solved a long standing issue that my wife and I have. While our main photography focus (pun intended) is scenic and nature photography, we often find ourselves shooting exhibits and auctions centering around classic and new automobiles. We often find this experience frustrating because of the large crowds and busy environment that detracts from the subject at hand. We watched a few tutorials and noticed that by washing out most of the background and simplifying the subject (Topaz Simplify) and then driving (yes, another pun) into Texture we are able to really pop the subject. That said, don’t get too fanatical with the effects, keep it simple and the results may indeed change the way you shoot under those difficult situations.

    Topaz Texture is the missing link to creating spectacular photography. This plug in offers the ultimate in versatility to turn even mundane imagery into exciting dynamic art. The plugin contains all of the adjustments, light leaks, grains and textures plus the ability to mask and control just where and how much is added.

    takes too much processing power

    I have a year old desktop system with top of line graphics, ram processor etc…
    I run Lightroom and photoshop together without any hiccups but when I try to use Texture effects it locks up my system. sliders don’t work –changes are delayed. I won’t be using it due to how slow it loads and runs. I would prefer to not have so many preset examples. some look identical. Too many categories and samples to load!!!

    • Donna,
      We’re sorry you’re having issues running Topaz Texture Effects. As with Impression this program uses the GPU/Graphics card to handle most of it’s processing. Lightroom and Photoshop mainly use the CPU, so unfortunately performance on one doesn’t mean good performance on the other. If your system is fairly new or you’ve recently upgraded your video card, as you indicated above, then your problem may be as simple as updating your old video drivers to the latest version. A majority of the performance issues we’ve run across has been do to outdated drivers, it’s a fairly simple fix. If you’d like help just message our support team and they can work with you to find the right set for your system and determine any other issues that might be bottlenecking your performance.

      You can submit a ticket to support here: https://support.topazlabs.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

    Interface need improving

    The results from Texture Effects are good, however, I find the interface not quite user friendly. When trying to edit a preset, it seems to take a long time for the edit panel to open. When trying different textures, it would be handy to see the name of the texture to help remember which ones I like. Also, if I change a texture, I find it difficult to revert to the previous texture.

    I am an amateur/hobbyist photographer and I take pictures of friends and their families as a way for me to hone my skills. I have gotten pretty good at my post-processing with Lightroom and Photoshop, but this Texture Effects product has helped me garner praises of professional-quality portraits. Layering textures over the portraits tweaked with the robust options available makes for quick and professional-looking shots that even a mid-level post-processing person can master. It is easy and intuitive. Best bang-for-your-buck product used in conjunction with the Photographer special Adobe Creative Cloud (Lightroom and Photoshop.)

    Don't overlook this application

    When this app was introduced I ignored it. I owned all the other Topaz Lab’s apps and just couldn’t see how Texture Effects would help in my photo processing. Boy was I wrong! I finally purchased Texture Effects and have found it to be a great application. Like Impression it’s not something to use on every photo, but when it can be used it really works wonders. I’ve used Topaz since they began developing apps and should have been smart enough to get on board when Texture Effects was introduced. I won’t make that mistake again.

    Easy but...

    Product is very good itself however making art is not a process od minutes. It will take hours/days even weeks. Texture effects are fine when you sit down to your computer and within some reasonably short time end-up with what your imagination leads you to. However I am still missing ability to save a project as a project not as a preset. There might be several masks several fine-tuned tweaks applied to certain areas of ART which has to be retained when next day you open and continue with your composition – but they are lost upon closing the program. Saving masks inside project is of utmost importance – and in this version it still not available.

    The Topaz Texture Effects set has been most useful in saving time, whilst not skimping on Quality! As easy as the presets are that come with Topaz Texture Effects, I love how simple it is to add your own customization’s! Being able to share your own filters/presets with everyone is an added Bonus!

    Thinking ahead, a library application to better sort filters/presets is a must. I can see how hundreds of one’s own filters could become unmanageable, and soon.

    This is by far one of my favorite effects for adding visual flair to my images, however there is an issue, if I connect to community and download latest community presets(which sometimes happens automatically) the whole program starts hanging and freezing and refuses to save any of the new presets I make, and I only have a few seconds to select a preset I want before it freezes/can’t do manual presets anymore because it freezes and then crashes.

With texture effects it becomes even more intriguing and special. It has also made several shots into the shot I had thought I was getting in the first place – thus, avoiding having to revisit and reshoot the scene. Timesaver, yes. But it also begs more time spent with archived shots, which can be exhilerating. Good way to get lost in time and enjoy the trip. Worth far more than the price.

    Least favorite of the Topaz products

    Honestly I have used Topaz for many years and all of the programs seem to make a difference in my work flow. However Textures seems a bit gimmicky..Many of the textures are funky and not very useful…There are only a handful that seem to make sense to me. Just not one of my favorite Topaz products

    Takes images past the "Normal"!

    A great creative tool for the image pro that wants to go to the edge with their photograph without the time consuming processes. You can’t go too far with the non-destructive nature of the software.

    A great addition to your plug-ins.

    no idea how it works

    I bought it downloaded it and it is the filters with 13 other TOPAZ Products. However, when I try to run it it says there is an error and that it will not run because I need to update a driver (OPEN GL) to 3.3. When I tried to open the driver to OPEN GL 3.3 it says I cannot update the driver to 3.3 because I have Windows 10. There suppose to be a fix for that but that has yet to actually work without disrupting other programs and applications. SO, I have no idea how TOPAZ TEXTURE works but the other 13 programs are fine.

    Another Nice Dimension To Your Editing

    Most of these presets are over the top for most of the type of photos I take, but they are fun to play with. One of the presets (Day Dreaming) is a dud. No matter what I do the effect has no affect on the image.

    Easy to understand and use.

    I think this is one of Topaz’s best plug-ins. If I had one thing that I would like to add to it, I would suggest a “Content Aware” brush for the “Mask” feature.

    More than Expected

    I usually apply textures via photoshop so thought I wouldn’t use this app much. But there is much more to it than adding textures. As with all the other Topaz apps, provides another quick way to quickly enhance a photo – and so much more. Easy to use, quite versatile. I think this is becoming one of my favorites.

    REVISION ..........

    This is a revision to earlier review,having had a bit of hands on guidance from a pro I had missed a whole section of changes and selections to this program(it is an age thing)…so now will give it five stars and great value for the money……shuffles feet and looks embarrassed :0)

    Fast and efficient at what it does

    Five Stars because:
    – Like many other Topaz Labs plugins, the workflow is amazing: You start producing cool stuff within minutes. Everything is so smooth and fast.
    – Now my #1 spot for texturing needs
    – Fast previews
    – Texture rotation and scaling
    – Double exposure
    – etc etc (many features)

    All that being said, I am sure the version 3 is going to be even better. Because you know what: version 2 is “just” about texturing, and nothing more. There’s not yet style transfers, intelligent image content recognition, and so on. Nevertheless it’s in 2016 an amazing best-in-class product.

    A Practical Tool

    By no means an everyday photo-editing software for what I mostly do, but that does not diminish the fact that Topaz Textures Effects v.2 is a very useful and practical tool if you wish to delve into the world of textures, light effects and image abstractions. You should be happy with what Topaz is offering. A well laid out interface with almost endless options, presets and adjustment tools, combined with the ability to stack effects and change blending modes really makes for limitless possibilities for one’s images. But the best part of this software is Topaz Labs itself. They have wonderful tech and customer support, helpful tutorials, and the free upgrades to your purchased software, You don’t find that everywhere anymore.

    Easy and powerful.

    I think it’s a great tool, easy to learn as a beginner. And the effects are many and very powerful. Lots of fun to play around with and make effectful pictures!
    I have other programs with texture effects but never learned to master it, maybe im a little lazy.. But with this Topaz Texture it’s just right on and i like that!

    Quick & Easy & Fun

    Wow, absolutely NO problems loading to my iMac. Easy to begin using immediately. Fast and fun too. Results are excellent and professional. I import from my image editor after modifying, apply Texture software then export finished image to a separate folder. Very user friendly. The layout is done so intelligently. I love having the vast array of adjustments (one of the best parts, impressive). What a deal! Hats off to Topaz folk!

    It's OK

    Texture Effects comes with tons of textures and it works well but I won’t find many uses for it. Still I’m glad I bought it because when it’s right it works great and is easy to use. And I like the promise that I will not have to pay for upgrades like with so much other software.

    Great effects

    downloaded the 30 day free trial and really enjoyed playing with the different effects, and the ability to fine tune them. Would have liked more “Fine Art” type textures, but I’m hoping to find some on the internet that others have created that are compatible with this product.
    I use as a plug-in to PhotoShop CC and it works a treat……

    Another Great Program from Topaz

    I had been looking at this program for awhile. I have the other programs and enjoy the results. After getting a discount of 35%, on Texture Effects, I couldn’t resist. I would like to see more textures offered within the program itself and really appreciate being able to position the texture anywhere on the image. Regarding the Collection itself, I am still not sure whether to use Clean, Clarity or Detail and would like to see a “What If” chart to direct me to the correct program from the beginning. Keep up the great work, Topaz.
