    Glow is the best

    I love the new glow program. I have had so many likes and comments on my images posted my facebook page. Everyone wanted to know what I was using, and now it’s finally here for everyone to take their image to the next level. Thanks Topaz, you hit a home run with this one.

    Glow for Your Christmas

    It’s finally here! I wrote one article about Photographic Visions in the December issue of my blogzine ( http://issuu.com/joseantunes/docs/fddecember201issuu) but did not mention the name of the program used, because it could not be named yet. Now I can say the images there were done with Topaz Glow.

    Glow is, again, a look at the new and more user friendly interface Topaz Labs has designed, but it is also a set of new visions that depart from pure photography, most of the time, in complete new directions, some of which may be much too graphical for some… and just the right thing others need for their projects. There will always be someone that finds the right tool or effect in these visual collections. And the time, Christmas, is right to get some Glow on your photos. Try the program!

    Unleash your creativity

    Glow as is the case with all of the Topaz products provides the abilities we as photographers utilize to bring out the very best in our artistic visions.
    I have been a Topaz evangelist for years and I can tell you that Glow is another in the photographers toolbox that is a “Must Have”

    What a fun product!

    I’m a big fan of Topaz products, and this one is right up there on the “fun meter”. You can do so many creative and interesting things, there really is no limit to how creative you can get. While animals and plants are great topics, I find this works well for landscapes and cityscapes too. It’s great to just spend some time playing around with any image – you’ll be surprised at how many unique outcomes you can get!

    Transforms your photos with fizz and pop!

    Ever had some photos you were not particularly fond of? Some which were lackaday, gloomy, overlooked, forgotten – they’ve been sulking in a corner – and you’ve no idea what to do with them? Well, dust off the cobwebs and apply the revivifying powers of Topaz’ latest product – Topaz Glow – its sixteenth in its suite of remarkable plugins: “Sweet Sixteen!”

    And remarkable it is: if it can resurrect so many ‘second-tier’ photographs, so to speak – just think what it can do to all those precious keepers – those myriad photos on which you pride yourself? Transformative is not the word. Electrifying gets close, but not quite. A sea-change? Well, mebbe.. but words will fail you too when you witness the incredible powers of Topaz Glow and its amazing effect on your work! I cannot recommend it enough..

    Awakens the Beast!

    Some Topaz products are subtle, Topaz Glow is IN YOUR FACE! It awakens all your creative molecules and dares you to be different. And yet you can tone it back to bring out those highlight effects just in the places you want. The more time I spend with it, the more I discover. Brilliant.

    A fractalius plugin for Mac users!

    Whenever I’d come across this type of effect before, I’d always wanted to play around with it. Being a mac user, I’d never had the ability until now!!!

    Glow is absolutely awesome and can be used subtly or used to create over the top, artistic creations.

    So many possibilities for creativity!

    As a Mac-user, I have been waiting for a software plug-in like Glow for a long time, and It has been well worth the wait! The possibilities for creativity are limitless, from subtle background enhancements to an electrifying “Wow” factor with fractals and other effects. The range of presets provides a wide range of tools to add just the right artistic touch for every kind of image. The pre-sets are just the beginning, though, as I found myself experimenting with the sliders, and even combining different effects by using layers and masking in Photoshop.

    Add Some Spice to Your Photos

    I can’t say enough good things about Glow. It’s fun, easy to use and gives the user control.

    Glow opens your editing up to so many different possibilities. By adding layers and/or masking in your host program and trying various blend modes, the sky is the limit.

    Take it for a test drive and have fun!!

    What a great Plug-in

    I am not much of a review writer so this is brief. Read most of the other reviews and agree with them. Was easy to download, test and bug free for me. It is fast on change order using the presets included to give a starting point. Using the sliders and light blend with percentage strength, you can really get some great looks and tempered to your own style. I checked it with most of the Graphic Programs like Photoshop CS 4, Sagelighteditor, PaintshopPro X6 and FXlabs. All work well with it or it is stand alone product to work on a solo image with just the Glow Plug-in. I am totally satisfied with the product. At the least you should do the trial and then get hooked on it which will probably happen.

    With every new Topaz release their product line covers more and more post-processing ground, and Glow takes their unequaled effects to the extreme! Nothing like this has been available for Mac users before, and it’s great to have the ability to add crazy glowing effects to my images to totally reinterprete them. It’s amazing what you can do with literally a single click!

    Another Outstanding and Fun Program from Topaz!

    Once again Topaz has raised the bar with Glow! Starting with the excellent presets you can create images from the highly dramatic to the very subtle. As with all of the Topaz programs you have the ability to customize these and create an unlimited number of your own. After working with the program I have found that it is a lot fun to see how images can be transformed in ways that I have never imagined! You simply have to try it!

    Topaz has another winner

    I was looking at other fractal software and many like flaming pear & others are obsolete or dont work with Macs. I easily downloaded this software a couple of hours ago and though I have only processed 3 images, I already know I am going to love this and get a lot of use out of it. I have most of Topaz’s other products and love their interface & controls. The presets for Glow are great and the sliders make refining an image to your taste quick & easy.

    Go wild or go mild

    Glow can add whichever effect you want with many variations in between. The only hard part of using Glow is trying to decide which of those variations to use on a photo, and combining it with other Topaz products such as Impression is even more fun.
    Give it a try.

    amazing

    I am just starting to use it, and there was years ago, a similar filter which was NOT available for Macs. I cannot remember the name of it. And now we have it!

    To answer the person who gave Glow a bad review, you have to practice with it! There are so many adjustments, so many ways to change the light, the color, the subtleness, that I hope that you re-review this after a time using it.

    Anyway, I am very very glad that Topaz now has this superb filter! I am adding it to my arsenal of great filters.

    Topaz also has come out with another filter which can make a picture look a bit like the original plug in for Photoshop which is now called OilPaint. Ive been playing with it, and its really beautiful. As I said before, you have to practice a bit, and make perhaps 10 different ones to compare. Total fun!!!

    Fantastic Results

    I just ran this filter through the paces using an old photo of some Zebras I photographed back in 2012.
    I used the preset Whisker Wires 1 with some adjustments and was just amazed at the results.
    This filter is another arrow in your quiver to help get those creative juices flowing.

    Effects that would take forever any other way

    Few plugins come along that just scream out of the ordinary, this is one of them, although it might not work on every image and certainly some images would be poorer because of it, but the ones that do, well they are gonna stand out from the rest.

    Effects achievable by the plugin are on its own league, sometimes it’ll take judicious use of it, and some images will benefit from the full effect. Glad to have it in my toolkit and will make use of it quite a lot. Great Job Topaz!

    Not just flash and glitz

    When I first started playing with Glow, my thoughts were that it was great fun and I could do some sparkling black light effect photos, but in the real world, it would have no practical use…at least not enough to make me fork over my hard earned money for. But I continued to play with it and started to turn down the volume. All of a sudden, I was able to get textures and subtle accents that I couldn’t get any other way. I was able to enliven some of my formerly nice, but unremarkable photos enough to make them noticeable. So when you get this program, do all the fun stuff and get it out of your system… and then get serious with it and really see what it will do for you. I think you will be more than impressed.

    No limits to your creativity

    I have used Topaz Glow for a few months. For the creative individual, there are limitless possibilities. For those who need ‘a little help’, the many presets give you a running start. As a photographer, I like my photos to exhibit realism. But there are times when I need to present something beyond a straight photograph. That’s where Glow shines (forgive the pun!).

    Topaz Glow

    I wasn’t sure I’d have a use for Glow at first. But, after a few days of playing I realized there is much more to the program than black light and neon effects. Those can be cool too, but with the pre-sets, blending modes, and controls on the right-side panel the possibilities are as great as one’s imagination.
    Topaz webinars are very helpful for getting into what else the program can do.

    Its good but

    So the big Topaz secret is out. For months we have been teased with little nuggets of what this plugin can do. What it doesn’t say is what it doesn’t do.
    Now before you all jump in with the usual “What do you mean” response. What Glow offers is an amusing slant on an image. But after using on a few images, my thoughts are it works great on some images but not so great on others. Maybe Topaz want you to do this, use on certain images, but not on all. It doesn’t work with PhotoFX, which I find surprising considering that all their other plugins do, really well. There is a lot you can do with this plugin but think carefully before purchasing. If you buy it as a discounted product, well its definitely worth it. But miss out and pay the full price, I am not so sure unless you really REALLY want this. Try the trial and see if it is want you are looking for. I would LOVE a defog or dehaze product, maybe incorporate it into the Clarity plugin. This is not a negative review. All I am saying is Topaz Labs set a very high bar for their other products, I am just not so sure this is as good .

    Used at full strebgth, Glow can be overwhelming and gimmicky, but used in moderation as an accent to existing images, it can be very useful. I would recommend checking out the various tutorial by Blake Rudis and others.

    Topaz Glow

    Topaz glow looked to be equivalent to the new Redfield Fractalius…HOWEVER it falls short of the mark by a mile. Had I not fallen ill the day after I purchased this I would have immediately wrote you and requested a refund. The adjustments do not allow for the fine tuning I use as an artist, the colors are not accurate, and instead of being able to add to your image, the effects I feel take away from the context of the image, placing the focal point on the filter…which in my books is wrong. It is highly unlikely I will purchase further filters from you, there are better effects out there. I also purchased Impressions which by the way I am not thrilled with either…I threw my money out basically. The only thing I find Impressions good for is enhancing my textures! Sorry guys..you will not be recommended by me, just the opposite! Pamela L Phelps

    very easy to use

    I found Topaz Glow easy to use and the video very helpful. I am still learning
    all the possible differences I can make to a photo or picture. As I am a newbie
    to the Topaz products and photography I worried in case they were too technical, but with the helpline, video ,and having fun trying different ways of using the Glow I am getting some excellent results. I would recommend Topaz glow to everyone, no matter how advanced in photography etc.

    Love the Hair and Feathers preset

    I’ve had the Glow for about a week now, and am just starting to use it a bit. I’m loving the Hair and Feathers preset, and it works wonderfully well on flowers, too. I find it similar to Fractalius, but easier to use, and control. And, in case somebody is as far behind the times as I am, it works fine with Photoshop 7!

    Easy to Use and Fast

    I had some experience with Fractalius on a 32 bit computer that crashed and wasn’t worth repairing, so I got a high power 64 bit machine. At the very time I was contemplating installing Fractalius, Topaz Glow was brought to my attention. I’ve had a great experience with all the Topaz products, so I bought Glow. I’m pleased to say that I find it easier to use than Fractalius and the large array of presets are fun to use. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. LOL

    Glowing Praise (almost)

    I so looked forward to singing high praises for the Topaz Glow software I recently purchased on line but am afraid I cannot in that there was no real description of the different modes of redesigning an image. However, the more time I spend using Glow the more I find I can do. The best way to find out what can happen to your photos seems to be taking one image and running it through all the various options, including those found underneath the directional lines in the right-sided column of basic hints.

    I’m not sure whether Topaz will have a guidebook for “Glow” but I imagine someone will produce one. This would become a fun learning project to really see what “Glow” can do. Once some of the presets are learned I began pre visualizing shots based on pre-planning which preset I might use. Fun stuff! Thanks Topaz!

    Fun To Use

    I have had such fun playing with the various settings in Topaz Glow. I have used it to produce both subtle glow effects on flowers, enhancements to the fur of animals to just make the image pop as well as outrageous over the top dazzling effects on cars. Some of the settings, like dizzy, I find rather blurred so have not found a use for them but I like the way you can use two or three effects and blend the layers to get the look you want.

    An interesting effect

    An interesting and useful set of effects. I use quite a few of the Topaz packages and they are good. Glow extends the reach of my effects collection and, mixed with other effects, can produce some really interesting images. It is a little expensive for what it is but worth having.

    Topaz Glow

    I have been very happy with the new Topaz Glow. I watched the webinar and decided to purchase the plug-in since I already had the entire suite of Topaz products. I was impressed with the subtle changes that can be made with the application using the presets and different blend modes as well as the very bold changes that are also possible. The flexibility is a great feature to create new and interesting images

    Ultimate plug-in

    Topaz Glow is extremely unique, intriguing, and artistic. It allows you to think outside the box to produce works of art out of virtually any type of subject matter. Within each preset there are many sliders giving you a remarkable number of combinations for each effect. My favorite technique is to produce two or three Glow variations of an image which I save to the desktop, and then in Photoshop I blend these variants using the blend modes. The results are amazing. If you like surrealism, wild colors, pronounced textures, and images that knock your socks off, this is a must-have plug-in.

    Open Your Mind

    At first I thought GLOW was going to be nothing more than a glorified SIMPLIFY but in fact it’s much more than that. I’ve been using it in a fairly subdued fashion by using layers and blending modes in Photoshop thus enabling me to find new ways to enrich my output. Let your imagination run free with this software and you will be rewarded.

    More control needed

    The sliders jump from no effect at zero to too much effect at 0.1. Also it’s unfortunate the effect can’t be painted into a part of the image. It would be nice to also have more options for changing the streaking/outlining paths so that more customized variations could be made.

    Topaz just keeps reinventing themselves and they did it again with their latest filter “Glow!” The photo possibilities are endless with so many great effects in Glow. Take it a step further with a combination of Topaz filters, perhaps a touch of Clarity, a touch of Glow, and then Impression and the reaction is Wow!

    Glow (so far)

    The interface for Glow is very similar to Impression and that is the crux of the details. I love the way both products are controlled and deliver the almost impossible results to achieve any other way. But… The interface, and especially the start up is very slow compared to all of the other Topaz Lab products. The issue we now have (given all of the Topaz Lab filters) is to take the end-result concept you have in your head and figuring out your workflow to get there. Yes, there are many alternative paths but I suspect you will need to develop experience with each and understand how they all work with each other’s effects. Glow is an asset in my photo-editing tool box and allows me to do things to an image I thought was not possible. That said, it’s a bit like being a kid in a candy store; so many options and only so much time…

    Would MAYBE recommend to a friend after it's been out for a while...

    I have been using Topaz products for many years now, in fact, starting out with Adjust and then gradually buying more of their photo plugins, getting up to around 8 or so of them. I love the GLOW plugin, especially when it doesn’t crash! Unfortunately, it has been crashing repeatedly since I installed it. An update came out recently and I jumped on it hoping that it might have fixed the crashing problem. Actually, it crashed worse! So, I uninstalled it and reinstalled the original version which I can use with some trepidation. Undoubtedly, Topaz will get this sorted out in time. Checking the specs on my computer, it is more than qualified to run the plugin since checking the support page on GLOW, that is one of the criteria that Topaz is commenting on. It is already a great plugin, just marred by the instability. This is the first plugin from Topaz that I’ve had problems with. I hope that they refine the bugs out of it so I can get an updated version that runs solid.

    Easy to use with the presets and the sliders can take you anywhere you want to go .

    Glow is great for some pictures and doesn’t work well with others. You can get some interesting effects when being heavy handed with the sliders on some subjects. A light touch can give a picture just the thing it needs to stand out . It can be like a pinch of cayenne pepper that makes a dish stand out but you can’t quite figure out what it is . .I am having fun with it and I like it .

    Great potential!

    As always, Topaz has introduced powerful new graphics tools in the new Topaz Glow.
    But Topaz is constantly improving their products, then bringing the upgrades to us at no additional cost. Some features of their other products will likely be brought into Glow (and Impressions) too. Here are some of them I’d like to see added to Glow:
    1. Layers.
    2. Adjustment Brushes
    3. Snapshots
    4. Apply
    I believe there will be a fairly big learning curve to make the most out of our enhancements, from mild to wild. I’m just starting up the curve and I’m excited to learn more.
    Bottom line: It’s FUN!

    Up until now, the effects made possible by the new Topaz Glow were only available to PC users. As a Mac user, I was always curious as to why no one had made the same effects available to us. Not only has Topaz Labs succeeded in giving us the same effects, but with more variations, so even PC users will want this as well. Like the other Topaz plug-ins, Glow is extremely user friendly. If you like working special effects into your images then this is a must have.

    Amazing art

    I thought knew what I was doing with GLOW….I’ve been very happy with my efforts….
    BUT having watched Blake Rudis on the Glow software webinar , I now realise there is so much more that’s possible to massively enhance my creations.
    It’s yet another winner from Topaz.

    Try it out but watch the webinars as well

    Topaz Glow is a fantastic product completely unlike anything I’ve worked with before. At first I thought it was really weird and not very practical but after watching 3 different webinars on glow I learned a lot more about how to use it. I’ve had some fantastic results with it and I can’t wait to work with it some more. Experiment with it but watch the webinars as welL

    Great effects, but with some glitches

    I love the effects. However, working with large files, the time it takes Glow to update the image after moving a slider was 10-20 seconds. To speed up Glow’s processing time, I followed the advice of a Topaz consultant: I reduced the size of my image by making a jpg file (1024 pixels on the long edge and 150 ppi). My plan was to find the set of adjustments that I liked using the jpg; save those adjustments as a preset; then open the original larger (psd or tif) file and simply apply my preset to the larger file. However, when I did that, the image looked very different on the large file than it did with the same preset on the smaller jpg. I also see that the previews for each of the presets is based on a small file size. It’s quite frustrating to see an effect I like in the previews (e.g., the liquify presets, or the fur and feather presets), only to apply one of those to my image and find that the effect is not nearly what I had expected, when applied to my larger file. These are all things I’m willing to work with to get the great effects in Glow.

    Loving Topaz Glow

    I have been playing with the new Glow filter and am having a lot of fun with it. I like that you can take your photos from simple fix to wherever you feel you want to go. I am still learning the ins and outs of it. But so far I am very impressed with it. Topaz Labs makes it so easy to use the filters and the Webinars really help me understand how to get the most from them. Can hardly wait for the next filter to come out.

    Must be used with care while exercising good taste...

    Like other Topaz tools, this one should be used carefully. It’s easy to go overboard because it offers so many variables, but it can transform an image that would otherwise be “ordinary” into something that’s visually intriguing. The possibilities are seemingly endless…you just have to be able to stop yourself from going “over the cliff”. When you’ve done that, it’s easy to start over using a little more care and taste. It is great software and I do recommend it highly.

    If it were possible to upload examples I could illustrate how “Glow” rendered images of a Dale Chuhully blown glass piece into something special by adding a neon treatment to the already-bright colors of the subject. It’s exciting to watch the transformation and experience the visual results.

    Topaz Glow

    I am a wedding and portrait photographer and I have tried Topaz Glow in a couple of instances with great results. One I shot a bride in a hotel lobby with a waterfall in the background and then made a selection in Photoshop and inverted the selection to isolate the bride and applied the glow to the waterfall, it looks fantastic.
    Also used the Fur & Feathers feature to great effect with a few dog portraits, very happy with the result

    not meant for serious photographers

Making my photographs look like neon signs is not my thing. However, try it out for yourself. I’m sure many others would like the effect Glow creates.

    Brings the fun back

    I am so impressed with how easy Glow is to use. I like being able to use it as a stand alone. I went back and used some older pictures and was able to bring creative new looks to some pictures in my files. I took a still life of a pineapple and electrified it, Then took a frame from a client shoot of his muscle car and used Neon to create a sort of Back to the Future look. Client loved it and I had a immediate sale.
    I used a shot of a semi-silhouetted palm trees branches with Neon and it was striking. I use all of the Topaz products, but Glow is really great and has a great price.

    I purchase every new Topaz plugin

    I found Topaz Labs just by chance. I had purchased a number of “Serif’s Software”. They advertised that there one program was just as good as “Photoshop”, WRONG! Anyhow, I believed that Serif was selling “Adjust”, so I bought it! I didn’t use it before I attended a few webinars, the rest is history! Within a number of weeks at the end of the year, (I don’t remember which year),
    I had all of the plugins plus the FX software. Why did I purchase all of these plugins? The answer is that Topaz has excellent Pros that demonstrate the capabilities of the plugins in ways that you would never think of. Consequently, I look at the purchases as an investment for the imaging part of my business which did not exist before Topaz, so therefore I always rate the plugins highly even though the last 2 are a bit more complex and not as intuitive to use.

    User Friendly, but....

    Very easy and fun to use! If I could change one thing it would be to have a ‘brush’ that if you wanted to lessen the effect, or take it completely out of one area, you could. I did “dream” mode on a pair of swans, would have been nice to be able to take the blurriness off of their heads only.
    Otherwise, love the program! Very fun to play with. Thanks!

    Love it, love it!

    You can use GLOW as bold as you like for startling effects, or, like me, be more subtle and enhance the parts you want to stand out. I use GLOW mainly alongside other post-production apps, rather than a stand-alone, to give a wow factor to specific parts of my picture. Many reviews I’ve had haven’t realised that something like GLOW has been used, they just wonder at how such an effect was achieved.

    Interesting but not essential

    I have been using Topaz products for many years now, in fact, starting out with Adjust and then gradually buying more of their photo plugins, getting up to 12 of them (my favorites: Adjust, DeNoise, DeJpeg, Clarity). Glow is interesting but not essential, it does not stand out much from other plugins as Simplify or Clean, I think there are similar combinations of them. But please, continue to offer us dreams with your plugins ! (a French user who don’t speak English very well…)

I wasn’t disappointed it gives some quite spectacular results and it also installed in Photo Shop as a plug in so I use it from there most of the time. It is also fairly easy to use and I like the idea of the slider controls to fine tune the results. All in all a great piece of software.

    Interesting effects

    Glow is able to produce many interesting effects. The effects can be easily customised and the controls work well. It would be useful to have a reset button to restore an altered effect. I have become used to resetting Topaz effects each time I use them and feel that Glow would be improved if it was the same.

    GREAT PLUG-IN

    Very happy with this addition; can be used as a stand-alone app or as a plug-in for Photoshop / Elements. the pre-installed templates are really good and the flexibility of the settings, enable you to add as much or as little effect as you like

    A glowing experience

    Topaz labs did it again! They came up with a tool that enhances my creativity by leaps and bounces. The results are breathtaking. I rarely use the presets as they are but I make use of the interface that allows the user to make an effect his own. Great stuff!
    My only wish is that a future version will allow to separate and view favorites.

    Needs more work

    All a bit too wacky with no refined examples of what ‘Glow’ can (or should) be able to do. Maybe the next iteration will be better, I hope so, as it stands it is probably the least useful of the Topaz range and as yet I would not recommend it. Like all the range it’s easy to use and seems stable.

    Looking forward to Glow 2.0

    I like the effect this program offers but not as well as some of my favourite Topaz apps like Adjust, Clean and Simplify. I tend to apply these filters and either dial them way down or change blending modes to allow them to accentuate the image without totally taking it over. For me the glow filter does not do this as well as the others mentioned. It just may take some more use on my part but for me the ‘jury is out’ on Glow

    Glow adds another box of really useful tools to your creative expression

    I never write reviews, but Topaz just flat out knocks it out of the ballpark. Glow gives you a very special set of tools that are easy and powerful. If you want to add some interesting glow effects you can do it the hard way and spend hours or you can quickly and intuitively try the pre-sets until you find the glow effect you like. Thanks Topaz Cats. Keep all the cool tools coming.

    i reviewed the lower rated reviews first to see if i agreed with them

    I can understand why a few folks don’t have a big use for this. However many people (like me)will be able to use it for special effects—– race car special items, commercial shoot coming up in March.. As far as paintablity in selected areas I would think using PhotoShop layers—- opacity adjustments and Blend modes should be able to get plenty of adjustability. I have not experienced any crashes yet. I think some of the slowest some people reported my be a result of amount of RAM available and/or the chip they are using . I bet some of these issues , if the result of the program , will be addressed in future versions.

    use sparingly

    Out of the box, the effects seem a bit extreme – at least for a photographer. However, applied with lower opacity and/or making use of blendmodes, your photos can really come to life.

    Mathematical transformations that result in digital wonders

    Both wonderful and strange, a new gem in the digital toolbox.
    I see its main potential in the more graphical and arty field of photography.
    However it represents with muted strength on classical pictures a touch that
    depending on setting reaches between subtle and surreal.

    Doesn't meet my expectations

    Like the other products I own, I was looking for more from this release.

    I am sorry to say that I am having trouble using Topaz Glow. This is the first time with any of their products. My computer constantly freezes up and I cannot get anything done, so have stopped using Glow My computer is about 5 years old, I’ve heard that it might be my graphics card as a friend of mine had the same problem with an older computer. I have followed the directions to upgrade the graphics card through Intel, but that is still not fixing the problem. I might have to get my money back for this product.

    Off to a great start

    The presets give an idea of what the filter is capable of and are good starting point for experimentation. Effects can be subtle or over the top. Sometimes over the top works. The effects are quick to update when making changes on the fly. Only 4 stars as it does not work with Topaz PhotoFXlab, and it does not support the large matrix previews which I found to be a great improvement on recent filters updates.

    the tool I have been looking for

    With the type of subjects I photograph ‘glow’ is the word I would use for the result I am usually going for. So when this software was released I was immediately interested.

    So I downloaded the trial, tested it on 3 images and purchased it.

    Why? The results are breathtaking. With any tool you can go overboard and Glow is no different but once you find your balance the images one can create are wonderful.

    Lots of presets to get you started, an easy to use UI and great results. What more could I want.

    One of the best plugins for Photoshop to come in a long time.

    There are hundreds of Photoshop plugins around, but many of them are not really useful or necessary. One of the most difficult things to do in a photo is add a beautiful glow around an object, and control the amount in several ways. Topaz Glow does it easily, with plenty of control, and the results are gorgeous. I plan to use it in some of my hi-fi equipment product reviews. Adding just a bit of glow around a photo of a $40,000 power amplifier will really make it stand out.

    I found the present to be very exaggerated and I don’t see myself using this plug-in. Wish I had tried before I bought. Maybe there is a possibility of a refund. I love my other Topaz modules.

    Creative and Fun to use

    I am just a hobbyist photographer who likes to have the best resources that makes me happy with my pictures. Topaz Labs have made life easy and I have all their products (Except Impression). The presets are so many in Glow and teweaking them to your taste is easy. The first time I used it and it brought a smile to my face as it was fun to create a different look altogether. Some Pros I know use it more creatively and I know I will master it to perfection sooner than I can imagine.

    Instant results

    When I first tried Glow, it kept crashing with a tlglow. exe stopped running message. Once I updated my graphics card driver, the problem was resolved. The first picture I processed with a preset jumped out at me, an instant result. Since then I have been trying different types of pictures, Landscape, indoors , close ups, flowers etc. and find this a great program to work with, and the manual adjustments easy to use with a never ending choice of what kind of result you want to apply, great fun !. I am just a hobby picture man aged 76, but I love the artistic pictures I can create with this programme . definitely recommend.

    Electrifying Effects

    Searching for some unsusual and eye-catching looks? If yes, i would recommend Topaz Glow. Of course you shouldn’t apply these effects to every photo in your collection. But for some special occasions Topaz Glow will deliver unique, electrifying results. Never seen that in any other plugin.
    Glow is easy to use as all products from Topaz Labs, price is fair for what you get.

    Fine Finishing Tool

    I am just getting started with Glow. Glow adds another tool to polish off an image in subtle ways with more control than possible with other techniques. I find the Strength and Blend sliders to be most valuable and fun. There is something new and interesting to discover every time I use it. Glow has a wealth of possibility.

    Still getting to know this

    I only gave it a three star right now because I’m still trying to figure it out. I’ve had some success but more failures I’d have to say. Not because of the software itself, but trying to figure out what works best with this. I’ve had a couple of people say they like the results but I’m not getting as many as I would like. I think I’ll call this a work in progress and see where it goes.

    Great for adding a "little something extra"

    As a photographer I don’t go for extreme “over the top” effects, but on selected images I find that, used with a light touch, Topaz Glow can give an image that “little something extra” that sets it apart and adds some mystique without making it look unrealistic.

    Does much more than at first recognized

    Like Blake Rudis, when I first saw it, I wasn’t too impressed, because I’m not into fractals. After some tutorials when I discovered how to get a more natural look, I then realized the potential and now consider it for all photos that can benefit from even a suggestion of glow.
    I have a lot more to learn about it and when I do, I suspect it will be used a lot.

    Look a little deeper

    At first Topaz Glow seemed to be a crazy effects package that I didn’t think I needed in my workflow. However, when I started examining the blend modes and what they can do for my highlights in my image in either soft light or screen are amazing. Take a trip over to Everyday HDR or catch one of Blake Rudis’ webinars on the subject and you’ll be impressed

    Very easy to use by even the most amateur person.

    I own both Topaz Glow & Redfield Fractalius & I have to say that Topaz Glow knocks spots off of Fractalius. Fractalius is a very good program but, it is limited whereas Topaz Glow has so many options & you really control the end effect. If you are on limited funds but want a good program then buy Topaz Glow, you will not regret it. However if funds are not a problem & you want a good program then I still recommend Topaz Glow, you will not regret it.

    Released a little to early, still needs work

    What consumers were not told before they purchased the product is that there are some issue with some graphics cards that either cause an extremely long time for the product to launch, or that simply crash the program running the app. It takes my computer which is running Windows 7 on a 64bit Asus model CM5675 over 2 minutes to load, and then sometimes crashes once loaded, but if it work, the results are very good. If you are familiar with Fratalius the results are similar, but with much more functionality. I will continue to use the product and hope they come up with a fix for my problem. They told me it was simply updating the Graphic driver on my system that I did, but with no better results. Good product if you have the right graphics card. I had sent a request into their support people but have not heard back from them yet. The rating would be much higher if the program would load quicker and not crash.

    with topaz glow you can create very beautiful and cool glow effects on your images. Therefor you can use 70 presets, opacity and blending modes and you can create and save your own presets.
    Although I miss a histogramm installed in topaz glow. And some presets more than actually 70.
    Some presets does ugly halos or other not needed details in some image selctions like trees and sky.

    Creative Challenge

    I have the full Topaz Suite and with the Glow Filter I am revisiting my Portrait file of images. I am impressed how easy it is to transform an image into an artistic form. The challenge for me is to use my creative imagination in conjunction with Photoshop and Topaz. I generally use Smart Objects as part of the editing process and I get a buzz during retouching as the image develops. Credit to the Topaz Software Design team in coming up with another excellent program.

    Strange

    Normally, new plug-ins from Topaz Labs fill a need. For me, Topaz Glow is an exception. In applying it to some of my photos, I found the results to range from interesting (but not something someone would want, let alone pay for) to hideous. I have not found an application where Topaz Glow provided an improved “look” to a photo.

    From a functional standpoint, the plug-in works well. The interface, like recent editions of other Topaz plug-ins, is easy to use and straight forward.

    The problem is that the effect requires a certain taste in order to appreciate it. I don’t have that particular taste. I have requested a refund from Topaz Labs accordingly.

    Saves ignoble shots

    It’s good to “save” bland shots, though the effects are too bold – you have to use it inside an app to enable limited, more discreet effects. So I found it most useful for shots I might otherwise have deleted, and to turn those into flashy posters. More a plugin for graphic artists than the classic-minded photographer.

    It is definitely different, and extremely easy to use. It makes a photo into a work of art. However, other than works of art, I see no real use for the program. Some of the presets are wildly overdone, but there are manual adjustments which can be made to tone it down.

    All in all, I like the program. For those who like to play with artistic effects in photography, it is great. It will do in seconds what would take hours in Photoshop.

    Not for everyone

    I purchased Glow impetuously, on the strength of the other TOPAZ products which I use frequently and with great results. I wish I had just utilized the trial version first and then I probably wouldn’t have bought this particular product for my use. To be fair, I almost exclusively do male portraiture and Glow has limited use on human subjects without looking over processed, unless you’re looking for a supernatural, otherworldly result. I will follow the tutorials and maybe I can still successfully use Glow in my work.

    Glow is a great program that sparks my creativity. I really like how much control I have in color adjustments. I also like how you can revive so-so images. As an experimental digital artist it was obvious I needed to buy this after only a day on the trial.
    The things that would earn it 5 stars for me are: Would like to be able to see
    my selected Preset listed above the active screen once I choose it ( that would be so helpful in activating the Settings mode ). Would like SMUDGE effect be able to be applied without erasing the white fibers. And it would be good if an image could be rotated.

    Glow GLOWS!

    I’ve been using Glow for about a month now, and it has almost become my “go to” plug-in.
    The presets are a great beginning, and sometimes enough for finish image, depending on the image. There is such a range of applications with Glow that it comes pretty close to being a one-plug-in process…almost. I have used it on a WIDE variety of image types, and found Glow to be remarkable in every situation. If I had to choose only one plug-in to use, Glow would be the one to meet most if not all needs for post-processing.

    Overall effect

    The plugin is well loaded with presets and fine tuning sliders. It works fast and reliably. Similar in many ways to “Fractalius” but much faster! The use of “Glow”, as ever, is dependent on the original image, the purpose of the enhancement and the final required result. Many camera club judges in the UK hate images which are “over cooked” and prefer them to look more natural. I bought “Glow” because, even as a judge myself, I like the effects it gives with the right image. Fur works extremely well! I like it overall even if it’s use ultimately may be limited!

    Remember the Sliders!

    I admit chuckling when i heard about Topaz Glow. Nonetheless, I took a chance and downloaded the 30 day full version trial. After approximately an hour of using Glow, I knew it was a keeper and I purchased it out right. Topaz Glow is pure magic. I used it with photos I would have otherwise ignore and the results are jaw-dropping. Several of my friends have downloaded it and admittedly had “meh” results. But I reminded them of the fact that they have complete control and the included presets are “ball park”. Then they were happy. My advice to all who use it, “remember, presets are merely ballpark, use the sliders and guides to achieve perfections and receive “wows”.” Topaz engineers…. take a bow. You did gooooood. 🙂 Oh! One more thing….. use Topaz Glow with other products, Glow and Impressions work extremely well together, as does Restyle. Fun to experiment. 🙂

    As a wildlife photographer I wasn’t sure how much I’d use Glow. Turns out to work very well for me. Some of the presets may seem a bit extreme but it shows you what is achievable.

    Having fun!

    This is the most fun I’ve had working with a new filter in a long time! I’ll admit that I was initially lured by the neon effects, and those were the first I played with – like with any filter, the neon effects are good for some sorts of photos, and not so good for others! But that’s fine, because the other effects categories have plenty to offer that are interesting and unique. I’ve enjoyed seeing the kinds of tweaking I can do to the base filter using the individual parameter controls, as well as using the opacity slider and different layer modes. One place where my experience with this filter is a “cut above” Simplify and Adjust is how closely the plug-in preview mirrors what I actually end up with when I get back into Photoshop — while the other two often surprise me with the differences I discover (and maybe that’s just the loose nut behind the keyboard, but still ….), A number of the filters do a really nice job when applied subtly of creating something unique about a picture while still preserving a photographic reality. Right now, I’m really enjoying getting to know Glow, and my friends are enjoying some of the results. I’ve only had the software for a few days, so there’s a lot more to discover, but I’m excited to explore the artistic possibilities! Four stars for now … but I suspect it’ll go to a five once I get into it some more.

    love it!

    I have been playing with the various features of this program and I am in love with the results. It is too much fun playing with the various features of this program. The possibilities are endless for creating something that looks like a graphic artist made. I am fully an amateur at this post processing but I am getting professional results! I strongly recommend this program or the Topaz suite to any photographer looking to take their work to a new level. Not to mention Topaz Labs has outstanding customer service! Just for the record, I do not work for them nor am I related to anyone in the company. I just really love the program and appreciate exceptional customer service.

    Topaz Glow is fun and easy. You can go wild with the effects or you can simple make subtle changes.
    I use PaintShopPro X6 and it installed easily with no issues. There are a good choice of presets and I’ve experimented with many of them.
    It is a pleasure to use especially when doing graphic art.

    Use sparingly for lovely effect

    This is a great addition to the Topaz library of effects. There have been other similar effects but only for Windows based PCs and they were by no means as customisable as this great Topaz filter. It can be used full on for a startling eye catching effect or very sparingly to greatly enhance an ordinary photo. Many thanks Topaz, another winner!

    Flexible Software

    I have found in the short time I have had Glow that is has different results on different photos. Use lightly on portraits creates beautiful results. I have used it on metal, such as trains, and it really made the train pop. I haven’t used it on a landscape yet, but do definitely intend to as I have seen remarkable results there, too. It takes some time I think to get to know all the intricacies of a software, including this one, so expect a bit of a learning curve. The tutorials help a great deal. Experiment too.

    This is really helping me to knock out quality visuals FAST 🙂

    I have a certain clients that go after neon effects/glows for motion graphics, stills, posters, book covers and digital signage to add punch to their colors and give backgrounds a certain flair, contrary to the flat design trends that most are flocking to…. This plugin frees up alot of time now that I don’t have to do as much manually. I’m using the existing presets to create my client/project presets to reduce the turnaround time for requests; most of my work involves tight turnaround times, so this plugin is a major blessing to me 🙂

    Add Just The Right Amount of Spice, Mmmm

    When I first saw Topaz Glow it looked fun but too glitzie for me … Bling!! My mind was changed 180* when I saw a skilled use in a Topaz Webinar,. That Webinar demonstrated to me what a great tool Glow is and I was convinced that this was a great spice to be added skillfully. Just like Chile, too much hot spice ruins the pot, but adding just the right amount makes a winning dish. Did I purchase? Well, of course!

    Great to add a little bit of "pop"

    “Glow” is great to add that little bit of “pop” to a photo. I’ll add a “Glow” effect, then reduce it until there’s just a hint left. If the viewer thinks an effect is added, it’s too much for me. “Glow” gives me that control. Example: I can thicken a bird’s plumage just enough to make it a bit more noticeable, rather than plugged into an electric socket. I also add very subtle stars with “Star Effects” so the view thinks it’s natural.

    Interesting Effects

    When I first saw the advert for Glow I thought, no way, it looked way too garish in the the effects, however I decided to download the trial to check it out. I found that by reducing the opacity and the the blend mode of the program I could enhance the image without overdoing it. I utilised it for quite a few varied images ranging from floral to landscape and whilst it wasn’t effective in all cases, a large majority benefited from the program. And I decided to purchase it. As stated by changing the blend mode generally to the overlay or soft light I can get a good benefit without getting outlandish.

    Glow is Fun

    Having spent the last couple weeks playing in Glow, I must say I love it. While there are not many human photos that I like with Glow effects (personal opinion) landscapes and still shots can be taken to a whole other level. I love that a little bit of Glow goes a long way to add inner light to a subject. A whole lot of Glow can make a photo into a piece of modern art that surprises and delights me..

    I love that Glow can make a mundane shot look spectacular and take it into a whole new realm. For example, an early shot of a poorly lit, noisy Gerbera daisy (that I just could not delete) became a cool neon-electric shot I adore. When I took the shot a year ago, I was just learning about my new DSLR and had no lighting except a flashlight, but the composition was good. Using Glow made it look really cool.

    As expected, It is with night shots that Glow absolutely rocks. Firelight on my relative’s Airstream became magical. Glow can also turn day into night. I had a day shot of Santa on a train car that looked awesome with Glow effects and appeared shot at night when done. Which, in my opinion, saved a boring shot by adding light wherever lines of (unlit) Christmas lights were strung.

    In the end, I recommend you try just about any photo in Glow. There are real surprises waiting in even ordinary photos. The creative me is thrilled when I find them. And who knows, you may like how photos of people come out as well so don’t let my opinion stop you.

    Topaz Glow

    I have several software and plug-ins from Topaz and have never been disappointed. They always are easy to use and, with their slider controls, quite versatile in letting the user go beyond the default settings.

    My only complaint, and it’s a small one, is that I prefer plug-ins for Photoshop so I wish I knew beforehand whether it was a plug-in or standalone software.

    If I have missed something and Glow can be used as a plug-in, I’ll happily change my rating from four stars to five stars!

    Interesting

    As I am relatively new to this software…I can only give a star rating of 3 at this time…I find that I cannot isolate a certain area of the photograph to apply the effects, rather I have to apply the effects to the entire photograph….I do not know if this is my fault because I missed this portion of information..or it is not an option…on the whole..the effects application is helpful in customizing a photograph..and experimenting with the effects being applied is interesting…if isolating certain specific areas is not an option…I believe Topaz should develop an option of this sort… when I gain more experience with this software I will rate it again..I use other Topaz Add-ons and find them exceptional…

    Images Pop

    I recently purchased Glow and I am very impressed and excited. While Glow allows me to add unique textures and incredible lighting effects, I find that Glow is most exciting when used in a blend . When blended, the effects Glow produces allow me to enhance an image in ways that can be very subtle and yet have tremendous impact. While many of the capabilities of Glow allow the user to produce unique images, I find that Glow’s greatest utility is in subtly enhancing an image to make it special.
    Truly a great product!

    Some bugs in the Windows Version

    The “All Effects” rendering is a bit slow for the thumbnails, and once an effect chosen, it does take some time until the preview of the picture is rendered.
    Also the handling of the Effects (right panel) could be improved.
    A selective +/- brush could be implemented in case you do not want the effect to cover all of the image
    Pretty interesting pictures can be generated using the tool. I am impressed

    Less is More

    So many latch onto the latest post processing application throwing their images way over the top, so it was with caution that I considered Topaz Glow fearing it was just another way to convert a photo into psychedelic freestyle. The problem with making stark, garish renderings intended to attract attention is that they are eventually overused resulting in the newest cliche. The power of Topaz Glow isn’t in the “Peter Maxification” of your photos, although I can see some might try, but rather its subtle application that converts a bland photo into a stunning work of art. Use its techniques gently and you will be pleased.

    A bit too non-photographic

    This is more about electricity than glow. Try it; it will either suit you or not. I love Topaz Impression and Simplify, as they help me to make very subtle changes to my photos. This plugin seems much more dramatic. However I have not yet spent much time with it, so I may yet be converted! I use all the Topaz plugins, sand am a great fan. So far, for this one, the Jury is out. Still you can always try it for free, so there is nothing to lose.

This product is easy to use and getting results are quick. I am thinking of putting an entire photo gallery together with this filter.

    Now I use it.

    Glow was a program that I down loaded the trial and tried to figure if I would ever use it. Was it a fun program?? Yes. Could I see any practical use?? No.

    Then I watched a couple of your webinars ( which I love by the way ), and started to see how others are using the program and my mind was being opened as to how I could fit it in to my work.

    I bought it and found that I use it quite a bit. Not everyday but a whole lot more than I thought I would. I use it when I am using Impression at times.

    Glowing Success Live

    At first like many, I thought why? After using it in my workflow, all I can say is, “WOW!”. I primarily shoot live concerts, so I didn’t want a drastic effect. With the use of blend modes, opacity and masking it can used as an enhancement, not a noticeable addition.

    Never Thought Glowing Lines Would be for Me

    Just like Impression I hated the product when I first tried it.
    It turned good photos into something that looked weird.
    Blurred faces with Impression lots of uninteresting bright lines with Glow.

    I got lucky with Impression & tried it on a rubbish photo which was transformed into something interesting. After that I learnt how to use it, and now it is one of my favourite ways to present my photos.
    When I first tried Glow I could not see how it would work for me; too surreal and not realistic enough for my taste. I looked into the Glow Webinar which gave me some better ideas on how to use it and I have become a convert.
    Love what you can do to enhance images, turning them from photos to Digital Art.

    My pet hate about both Impression & Glow is the start up screen which usually goes to Featured which is slow & not changeable. I would much prefer it to go to My Pre-sets.

    Easy

    Topaz Glow is easy to use and has the flexibility that I need. My main business is portraits. When I first purchased Glow I thought I would only use it for some of my other work but I find with it’s adjustments I can use it to enhance my portrait work also. Good job Topaz!

    Nice variety of effects

    On an older computer I had used a different plug in program to achieve similar results. I used a trial version of Topaz Glow for only a couple hours and knew I’d purchase the program. Processing speed is much faster with Glow than the other plug in had been.

    I like that the working window is large and the interface is easy to learn. With one slider it is very easy to lessen or adjust the strength of the effect. I own many Topaz products but Glow is rapidly becoming my favorite.

    Fun

    Interesting and unusual. The effects can be beautiful or dismal depending on the original image, one’s imagination, and one’s taste. My exploration of Glow has been mostly late at night after a long work day constrained by corporate parameters. Cruising my images in Lightroom for candidates for reimagination, a likely prospect is chosen, opened in Photoshop, and the fun begins. I have yet to be disappointed by the possibilities and the surprising results.

    Great Fun

    I’m an amateur photographer and my aim is to capture images that I can put on the wall of our living room and have a guest say “Wow, what a great picture”. Out of hundreds of pictures I’ve been lucky enough to come up with a couple that meet that goal. After working with Glow for a little bit (only the tip of the iceberg) I can see how much potential there is to create images that will really “pop” and stand out. The possibilities are almost endless. Glow is a lot of fun and more than worth the money.

    Outstanding Plugin for Artistic License

    Very simple to use and just the thing to turn a discardable shot into something you would be proud to show. Very easy to use with an intuitive feel. Don’t forget that you can tweak the effects to your heart’s content. Don’t just use the presets. Think of them as jumping off points to your own vision.

    Topaz

    I have just spent the Xmas break experimenting with Topaz Glow. I am pleased to say I was surprised at the versatility and control that you had over all aspects of the program and the results obtained were very pleasing. The presets need to be adjusted(unless you want some over the top effects) to suit the image and when used with Blending modes and tweeked in Photoshop the results can be amazing, yet subtle. Early days yet but it has convinced me to purchase the plug in.
    Now trying it with Topaz Impressions and combining the two.

    Great for Abstracts

    At first I didn’t like Glow. I watched videos and attended a class and didn’t think much of Glow. I could rarely make a photo look better with it and it was a lot of work to get there, so I decided not to buy it.

    Then a friend tried Glow after using Photoshop’s Polar Coordinates and some other things, so I started playing with Glow on some of my abstracts that I had made using Polar Coordinates. They were gorgeous! Especially on a black background. Then I simply had to buy Glow. Now I have a lot of fun making abstracts that glow, sparkle and shine.

    Exciting Glow Software

    I’m relatively new to Topaz Software. I was introduced to Glow through Mike Moats, the Macro Photographer. I started using it immediately. I found it easy to work with and that, for me, it has an intuitive feel to it which makes it quite user friendly. Along with the fact that you can access an extensive number of presets you can also create your own which is a feature that I truly like. An amazing photo software that I’ll be using for a very long time.

    Topaz Glow ist ein sehr nützliches Tool, das zu Bildern mit interessanten Effekten führt. Anders als andere Topaz-Tools läuft Glow auch mit PS CC 2014.
    Die Vorschau ist ausreichend schnell. Das Tool ist stabil, ich hatte bisher keinen Absturz.

    Meine Wünsche für die nächste Version:
    Anzeige des aktuell aktiven Preset-Namens (aktuell muss man in der Liste das blau umrandete Preset suchen/danach scrollen); automatisches Anlegen einer neuen Ebene in PS mit dem Namen “Glow” + Preset-Namen; Anlegen von Favoriten (statt Umweg über My Presets)

    I was really happy to find a program like Topaz Glow that was available for Mac computers. A couple of years ago, I had the honor of judging the annual photographic competition for the City of Lone Tree, Colorado. One of the entries was a tiger, not unlike the one featured in the Glow display ad. I really liked what the photographer had done with his image and asked what software he had used. I forget the name. It doesn’t matter anyway since it was only available for PCs and I’m a Mac user. Need I say more.

    I Really Like Topaz Glow

    I have found that Topaz Glow, when used lightly, can give my commercial pool and spa photos a certain pop without looking over processed.

    Here is an example where I used a light application of Topaz Glow :

    http://www.waterfirerock.com/p1032419766/hb128bf3#hb128bf3

    I processed this photo using my usual post-processing techniques. As a last step, I applied Topaz Glow Neon and then reduced its layer opacity to 25%. This gave the image a creative pop without being overwhelming.

    That this point I don’t believe that any of my commercial pool and spa images will be considered complete without first running them through Topaz Glow as a check to see if they can be improved.

    Nice work TopazLabs!!

    I have applied it to several types of images: flowers, landscapes, inanimate objects, etc. You can vary the effect from very subtle to bold and eye-popping by selecting your blend options or only locally blending in using a separate layering tool. Just experimenting is the best way to see what this tool can do.

    Topaz Glow Review

    At first when I saw the examples of Glow on the website, I was turned off because they seemed to be “overdone” However, after downloading the free trial and using it myself on my own images – I absolutely LOVE IT! I enjoy the way you can tweak the settings to fit the image. I like to take my finished image from Glow into PS as a layer on top of the original. I then use the opacity and fill settings in PS along with a layer mask to apply the effects to certain parts of the photo and just the right intensity. Thanks Topaz for a wonderful product!

    Been waiting a long time!

    I’ve been waiting for a long time for software to replace Fractalus, who refused to cater to Mac users. So, finally, here it is….AND I like it even better than Fractalus from back in my “Windows” days.
    Glow is easy to use, offers very good controls, and renders super fast on my Mac.
    Thank you Topaz for making this!

    Impressed by the creative posibilities

    I purchased glow just after one hour of trying it because I could not let go of the special discount over the holidays and I HAD TO HAVE IT!
    Since then (end of the year) I have spent my evenings playing and exploring the Glow possibilities. I have produced a series of images that gave much satisfaction. The more I get to know the filter, the more I like to try in another image. In addition, combining it with other Topaz filters like Clarity and Impression, I have created images that are the type I like to name as ArtEx Photographs/Images (ARTistically EXpressed photographs) as they express my artistic creativity on original photographs of my own.

    I am a sold customer of Glow and other Topaz Labs filters!

    Let There Be Light!

    I’ve been waiting for a plugin/standalone like this for a long time! At first glance, the interface may seem a little sparse because masking, layers, and brush tools aren’t present. Do NOT let this put you in a doubtful state of mind. “Glow” is a powerful tool that will unleash your creativity. As artists (and I mean amateur and pro alike), we use an arsenal of “tools” to breathe life into our images. From deciding ISO, shutter speed, f-stop, and lens to which photo editor to use and what “tweaks” we apply, we cobble our art with the tools at hand. This first incarnation of “Glow” is impressive. I’m sure that each upgrade will be even more dynamic. I use Photoshop to edit my images and have incorporated its power of layers, masking, and blend modes when using “Glow” (as a plugin) to enhance an image and find it a clean work-around. Kudos Topaz Labs for having the foresight to include .psd files with intact layers as a readable format! “Glow” perfectly rounds out Topaz Labs’ superb suite of image editing software.

    MIxing reality with fantasy

    I have been using Glow for a couple weeks. I especially like the Fur and Feathers presets that I then personalize. I also enjoy adjusting the opacity for strategic areas in a photo. The opacity will be ranging from 50% down to 0 % of specific parts of my pictures. This is why I call it “reality and fantasy”.
    Please check out my site on Flickr for examples. The last 35 photos were all made using Glow: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rgravelle/

    Topaz Glow

    I found the learning curve for Topaz Glow a little more involved then I expected, since I use a similar plug-in. The key is to be patient and not move those sliders very much – a little most times more then enough. The presets make the process smoother to get started and allow lots of opportunity for my own creativity. Once comfortable with Topaz Glow it adds another great tool to the Topaz product stream..

    I use Topaz Glow as a plugin in Corel Painter 2015. When I am finished with a drawing, I use Topaz Glow to add punch and/or texture to the drawings. Then, I blend out the unwanted texture and pinch out the unnecessary glow edges. The fur and feather presets are especially good on hair.

    good product but needs more portrait capabilities

    Glow emphasizes working with landscapes as opposed to portrait shots. If you could add more presets for taking pictures of people, I would like it much better. I understand that Glow may not be the best product for portrait photography since it emphasizes fur, feathers, graphics, etc., but I hope you can expand it’s portrait capabilities with things like hair, clothes, backgrounds, etc to a more enhanced capability. Yes, i use radiate and some other presets – I just wish there were more.

    An Interesting Product with Limited Use

    Though it is easy to use, I am not a fan of the results. I occasionally use effects like that offered in Topaz Glow for pictures that are not in focus or just are not that exciting and sometimes these effects can make them more interesting. Yu can, however, get similar effects from Photoshop/Elements or a number of free add on filters. With that said, I love Remax4.

    Lots of possibilities

    I have many of the other Topaz filters and like them, I am pleased with Glow as well. I just got it and haven’t had too much time to use it yet, but I like it already. After playing around with it for a short time, I found that everything that you do with it doesn’t have to have a “neon glow” to it. I used it to create a leathery look to a portrait without all of the glow. Like all other graphics software, it just takes time to work with it for a while to see what all of the adjustments do and work with different combinations of them. It also works well with Photoshop and Lightroom to combine effects to get the look that I want. I look forward to working with it more.

    Exciting options

    I have used and benefitted from Topaz Software for many years. The recently released GLOW is, to me, the most exciting of the Topaz Programs. I have used it extensively on photos I took late 2014 during a holiday to South Africa. I am continuously amazed at how it almost miraculously transforms a very normal photo into an amazing work of art. Fabulous results have been achieved with landscapes, animals and portraits.

    much easier to use than Redfield's fractalius plugin

    Redfield’s fractalius plugin is cheaper and has been around since mid 1990’s…BUT topaz labs’ GLOW plugin is easier to use, gives one more choices, more adjustments’ sliders, *The only drawbacks are: just 6 or so blend modes and no masking. If topaz was to expand their blend modes to all 16 or so adobe blend modes and have masking-where one could mask in/out various GLOW effects in their plugin, and have it accessible via their own PhotoFXlab plugin, then topaz’s GLOW would really be awesome!

    More useful than you might think

    I’ve seen others say Glow was an interesting tool, but not right for them. They may be missing a bet. Undiluted Glow may overwhelm many images, but Topaz has included a very useful tool called “Strength” which allows you to dial down Glow’s effects. Often, this will provide just that little nudge that turns a really good image into a great one. I’ve given Glow four stars instead of five not because of any dissatisfaction with the application, but because there is so much room for growth in Glow that will make it even better.

    Topaz Glow is a nice extra plug-in for some of my images. However I only use just a few of the presets and when I do I take the slider way back to just give it a hint of a painterly look. The trick for me is not to over do it. I have posted several of my images on Facebook using Topaz Glow on Macro Abstracts/Soft Focus Flowers (Mike Moats) Site. I have been getting a lot of likes on my photos. I also use other Topaz products combined with Glow in my editing process.

    Great - just learn to use sparingly

    Really unique, powerful effects – the reviews below miss the point. Of course the effect is bold, that’s the point. If you want subtle variations, hints of Glow, then simply duplicate your layer, apply to one layer and adjust transparency. This is a basic PhotoShop principle…not sure why so many people are thinking it’s “all or nothing”

    At first I thought GLOW was too obvious and didn’t use the trail much until it had almost expired. I gave it some attention a few days before it expired and realized it I could make a good photo even better if I played with the settings. It didn’t take long for me to get the hang of it. Now it’s one of my favorite plugins.

    An absolute marvel

    One of my hobbies is creating abstract digital art and by applying “Mysterious II” as a 67% Duplicated Transparent Layer over my original painting it went from vaguely interesting to deeply textured, beautiful and intriguing.

    Your other filters are perfect for artistic, naturalistic, colour and image enhancement and correction but Glow is so well suited to my works and renders effects that match my style that it feels like cheating.

    Fun to use

    I have used it on two images successfully and really liked the results, but not so much on others, but then I’m a newbie experimenting. It’s definitely fun to play with, and on the right image, it does wonders. If I could give a suggestion, it would be to allow the bottom left slider’s setting to remain there. It’s a tad annoying to have to keep going back and resetting it. Also, I can’t imagine anyone using any of the choices at 100% intensity. I almost didn’t buy it when I saw those extremes. Why can’t it be included in Fx? I created a major problem by trying to get it installed there.

    Not that great

    The sample images looked better then what I was able to produce. It’s a hit or miss with the effect on images…with a usual miss. If there were a way to only use the effect on part of the image without having it effect the whole thing…and by this I mean not having to do extra work with layers in photoshop, it might not be that bad. But at this point…the effects remind me of basic built in filter effects that come with photoshop.

    very helpfull for picture editors but i’m not happy for system requirements, bucause it require 64bit OS, but 75% or avobe people use 32bit OS this is so bad, bucauce i’m sure 75% people don’t want or like update their OS from 32bit to 64bit OS only for this software. i think this 64bit OS requirement thek this software down to downer. you should also release 32bit supported version.

    Topaz Glow

    My initial reaction was that the software was very close to Topaz Impressions. However having used the software on different types of images I found that the software brings out more detail in certain areas ,that other softwares cannot due .
    If you want to bring more artistic modes to your images then this, without doubt is the software for you.
    For more normal images, Topaz Glow if used correctly ,can offer delicate touches which bring out your images and improve and show out your images from the rest.

    Awesome Program!!

    Topaz Glow is awesome and I would definitely recommend it to anyone! It works as a stand alone and also as a plug in. The only reason I’m giving it four stars instead of five stars is because it does not have any masking features and you can’t stack filters. Maybe those features will be available in an upgrade, but in the meantime it can be worked around using a layers based program.

    I don’t mean any disrespect to the people who gave it low reviews or who said this program isn’t for “real photographers”, but please don’t let those reviews keep you from purchasing Topaz Glow. Yes, you can create the “wild looking” photos, but you can also create beautiful, subtle finishing touches to your images and people wouldn’t be able to tell you used this program. When I first tried a few different filters, my reaction was YIKES! However, I watched the tutorials Topaz Labs provides on their site and on YouTube and I also watched other tutorials and webinars on YouTube – I learned a lot and it was easy to learn. I also experimented with the program.

    If you apply a filter that is to “weird and wild” for your taste and/or isn’t something you would ever do when you process your photos, just go into the filter you applied and adjust the sliders and you can also change the blending modes and opacity Topaz Glow is a FANTASTIC program – you just need to experiment and watching a few tutorials would also help. The learning curve is easy and the results are beautiful yet subtle..

    Topaz Labs has some great learning resources that don’t take up much of your time. If you would like to watch a longer webinar that is really in depth as to what you can do with Topaz Glow, here’a link to a great webinar by Topaz Labs with Blake Rudis that I found on YouTube. Since it’s a webinar it is kind of long, about an hour, but it’s definitely worth watching even if you just watch it in bits and pieces. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNjDbcpF9eI. The title of the webinar is “Integrating Topaz Glow into Your Workflow, presented by Blake Rudis”.

    Bright effects

    I have fun using Topaz Glow to make abstract photos. I have used it to enhance some photos, but mostly I use it when I want to do something more wild. I feel the asking price is kind of high so I went and bought the program when it was discounted. I do not use it in my everyday work flow like I do the other Topaz products.,

    Give your images that extra 'wow' !

    After trying a free trial of Topaz Glow, I was hooked.
    Whilst it doesn’t want to be used on every image, when you see an image that you just know will really pop, try some of the Topaz Glow presets. I’ve already created some amazing effects on the right kind of images.
    It’s a winner as far as I’m concerned.

    Like but better than Fractalius

    The gimmick facture of Glow lasts a few weeks then its a program that could easily be left in the closet. That would be a shame. Use with a mask to place the effect on part of the image only – eyes, teeth, fruit ( used it for one banana out of a bunch just today). Topaz is also a safe site so you can be sure no virus comes with it. Not that another companies product gave my computer a virus but my anti virus software came up with a warning. It certainly does not have the controls of Glow or the flexibility.

    I would like to see more suggested setting for the software like say “Eyes” opening a new bunch of suggested setting. I would still like Glow to go a step further. than it does at the moment. Maybe not the most important of all the Topaz plugins but it sure is fun to play with and a useful addition.

    Nice addition to the toolbox if you are looking for a unique feel

    Pros:
    Easy to use and modify effects
    Great for floral and animal photos
    Effects seem to work best when there are a lot of shapes and details or when the light varies in portions of the photo
    Price is reasonable

    Cons:
    Unable to apply an effect to a portion of the photo (wish it were more like NIK in this regard)
    Many of the effects are very similar
    Unable to modify the colors individually
    Not practical for most photos unless you are creating an 80’s themed collection. This is really more of a taste issue though
    App is slow, even on a machine built for gaming. I am using this as a filter plugin with PhotoShop

    It would be nice if Topaz labeled the effect used on the sample photos on the web site. I would really like to know what effect was used on the Per Grunditz bird photo.

    Lots of Fun

    Topaz Glow is fun. Used with a little restraint, it can enhance many photos…for wilder effects, use it at full strength. I am amazed with the results when used at more subtle levels. Subject matter makes a big difference. I tried it on some Northwest Indian art and loved the results. I would have given it 4 1/2 stars if that had been an option.

    Topaz Glow is a super program and renders some pretty spectacular special effects quickly. Super time saver and of course, way easy to use. I was up and running within a few minutes after installing this program on my computer. Would recommend all to purchase this as one of their plug-ins for Photoshop. The program was a breeze to install and ease of use is outstanding. You will not believe some of the really super cool special effects you can generate with Topaz Glow. I am really happy with my purchase and have the Topaz suite of other programs and this is one of my favorites. You can’t go wrong with this program.

    Didn't Think It Would Work For Me But It Did

    I purchased Glow on a whim and really didn’t think I would use it very much. All those electrified, effects are not my style. What I found was that it is really good for adding punch to very flat images. When I use Glow on an image, I put it is on a separate layer in Photoshop and adjust the blending mode or opacity to keep the effect from overwhelming the original image.

    I have enjoyed using glow and seeing the ‘pop’ added to my photos. It really adds brightness and vibrancy to bland images. Many of the effects are over the top but with the strength control and different blending modes, you can tone it down. I’ve discovered whole new looks in some of my images and that’s been fun.

    Award winning!

    I was introduced to Topaz Labs through a photographic web site that I belong to. I had noticed a certain “look” from one of the artists that I wasn’t able to create with the tools I had. Finally, curiosity got the best of me and I wrote to him and asked how he processed some of his work. He was appreciative of my recognition and clued me in regarding “glow”. It wasn’t long after and I was on Topaz’s site exploring all they had to offer. Fortunate for me, Topaz offers ALL their software free for 30 days. I downloaded Glow and got to work. The software is very easy to work with and offers many modalities. I found that if you use the features subtly, very unique interpretations can be expressed. I applied my new “look” to some of my work and entered a contest. I am happy to say that although I didn’t win, I was a finalist, which is more than I have ever achieved. Now, I am the one that my peers write to asking “how did I do that?” Yes, I have recommended this software to many people.

    Make your images stand out!

    The best part of Topaz Glow is the ability to control the intensity of the effect so it adds a subtle enhancement to the image which makes it stand out, but doesn’t distract from the subject.
    My favorite technique with Glow is to use a Glow layer of the image and mask the main subject so the Glow adjusted background compliments the energy of the main subject without affecting the sharpness and clarity of same.
    Glow is also excellent for quickly adding the sparkle back to water images without blowing out the highlights. Using and adjusting the “Electrify” or Fur and Feathers” control panels, and setting them in the 6% to 20% range works well for this.
    Brilliant product!

    one of my favorites!

    I absolutely love this plug-in. In my opinion It is the opposite to HDR effect in that it emphasizes highlights to enhance an image instead of shadows which can potentially be more grungy looking. I particularly appreciate the wide spectrum of adjustment options. You can be as subtle as you want to very extreme making Glow quite versatile. I really love Glow in portraits and landscapes. It beautifully enhances hair, clouds, and water as an example. Just a smidgeon goes a long way to enhance fur on animals. If you want to achieve a more ethereal and dreamy-type effect, I highly recommend Glow. I trialed Glow prior to purchase to better understand it as I was not convinced before and now it is one of my favorites!

    Great for a Graphics Junkie

    I admit to having always loved graphic art, but never thought I could do it myself. I have had a great time playing in Glow and discovering all the cool and sometimes surreal effects I can get on my photographs. It was worth the money just to have all the great play time, even if I don’t have the moxie to put any of my work (yet) on the web. P.S. It also seems to add some sharpening to my photos, as well, but that is just a side benefit.

    Glowing Review

    Topaz Glow is a fun plug-in! There are so many different options that this single plug in feels like its actually a lot more. The effects are fun and amazing. What really gives you control is the strength option. You can tone down this filter as much as you want or you can just let it do its thing. I do recommend creating a smaller image first if you are experimenting with altering the Glow type as it can really bog down a computer. I have a 12 GB 1333 MHz DDR3, ATI Radeon HD 5670 512 MB Apple computer and find a delay of about five seconds at times as the screen refreshes. If you’re patient you can use your full size image. No worries. Love the product.

    Easy to use and amazing results

    Such a simple and easy interface that creates amazing effects. The basic pre-sets are a great starting point and you won’t be disappointed with the results that they bring, however the power and the fun in Glow comes when you start experimenting with the sliders beneath the pre-sets.. Once you have applied the pre-set, click it again and sliders appear offering hours of fun.

    Maybe that is a down side. You may not get any proper work done experimenting with the effects that Glow offers you. But its got to be worth the risk!

    a Great product

    While this is a good product what stands out is not the product itself ,which by the way is a very impressive. It is the fantastic tutorials, which not only are truly wonderful but are easy to follow , it is one product which continually impresses me each and every time .
    Great job.

    Easy to use

    I bought Topaz Glow only a few days ago, didn’t have much time to play with it. So far it works fine, easy to find my way around. Great in retouching portraits, furry animals come out outstanding. As a new user I need to look at one of your webinars to improve my workflow.

    MAKES YOU THINK AHEAD OF TIME FOR THAT SPECIAL EFFECT.

    I AM INTERESTED IN DESIGN AND THE USE OF PHOTOGRAPHY IN DESIGN. I HAVE ALREADY USED IT ON SOME TYPICAL PHOTOS AND ADDED THAT EFFECT THAT WAS NEEDED TO SLAP PEOPLE IN THE FACE, EFFECT. I WILL DEFINITELY GIVE THIS PROGRAM A WORKOUT.

    A Toy?

    The thing that I learned quickly was that Glow was not just a toy and a little goes a long way sometimes. My original thought was a kool plugin to make things glow and fun to play with. Then after working the settings under the hood of the program I decided that this was no toy and could be used on any photograph. In fact there is a place out there for just Glow users like HDR users.
    It brings neon life to photographs!

    Easy , Fun and classy

    I have only worked on 4 or 5 photos so far but I am very pleased at the ease and the amount of settings to tweak and experiment with. My advice is purchase it .It is not expensive. It is fun to use and it is a great addition to the full line of Topaz filters . I have them all and use them all. Thanks Topaz for a great product..Sincerely, Ray of Hackensack, New Jersey

    Not Just for Wild Effects

    Many reviewers seem to regard Glow as a novelty plug-in. Certainly, with high settings, the results can be very abstract — even garish. And there’s a place for that. My taste runs toward more realistic images. I find that when applied with restraint, Glow adds warmth and mood to nighttime street scenes (particularly those with neon lights) while retaining a very realistic appearance. I wouldn’t use Glow on every photo. But it’s a useful plug-in, and what it does, it does well.

    Love the visual aspect of it and simplicity of the program

    I have already won several photographic competitions on Facebook with one edit using Topaz Glow. I am getting more ‘Likes’ than ever for my edits using the program. The program suits my style of photography as I love stylistic and abstract edits.

    I have promoted the fact today to a friend that Topaz Lab is on special at the moment for all programs. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to trialling Black & White and Impressions, as soon as I can download it properly. Margaret Forbutt

    Topaz Glow

    An excellent find!

    I really like Topaz Glow. When I failed to see the recent lunar eclipse due to heavy cloud cover, I looked at my older supermoon shots and decided to swallow my disappointment by “playing” with them in TG. Quite fantastic digital art images! But I also use TG to spice up my nature photography by using just a little bit of the strength on presets and adjusting the result with the sliders.

    Therapeutic

    Remember when you were little and coloring in coloring books would soothe your mind, make you relax, and take you to far away places?

    Even if you are a pro, and I am, you will have fun with this easy-to-use and imaginative plug-in. It is great fun to use the controls and tweak your images in so many different ways. The presets are very nice, but using the controls makes you be able to produce what YOU envisioned.

    I had downloaded the free trial (which has no limitations) for the period allowed, tried it out, used the customizing controls…and was sold! Works easily within Lightroom and/or Photoshop. From experience, I know that this will then work easily within Elements as well. Try the free trial! You’ll be sold too.

    Topaz Glow

    I think this program goes beyond just photo manipulation -ie effects, exaggeration etc. I think it is a fractal program that can create effects that could not be achieved any other way. I find myself using on most of my images. I love it.

    In a Class of its' Own

    I have used Glow for the past 6 months, and having been in the computer graphics industry for over 15 years, I can confidently say that Topaz Glow is in a class of its’ own. There is nothing on the market that can ‘hold a candle’ to it. The presets are well thought out and are fully adjustable. Your only limiting factor is your imagination and creativity.

    Fun filter for creativity with those "less interesting" shots

    Very easy to use filter from the Topaz collection that creates quite dazzling abstract images and seems very well suited to shots that might otherwise seem mundane simply using the pre-sets. But of course it goes well beyond those with the ability to adjust all of the levels of the parameters for each pre-set – I haven’t had chance to explore this aspect fully as yet but can see that this will allow more subtle effects, and will couple well with the use of layers in photoshop to apply the effect to selected areas of the image. The user needs to be very cautious, more than with other Topaz filters, to use Glow judiciously and more subtly to create images with the best impact rather than of the cliche’d variety.

    Fractalius with more

    I haven’t explored all of this program. It has a lot of similarities to Fractalius, which is annoying as I bought that a while ago. As I recall, again there is no undo button and the whole process is annoying. Some good stuff and I’m sure I’ll find some things I don’t know about yet.

    Real fun plugin with serious potential for some intriguing pictures

    after a week of playing with Topaz Glow I don’t really have any negatives to say about it functionally it works really well on my MAC as a plugin to Photoshop cs .
    I think it can make ordinary snap into something very interesting to look at. Can certainly transform any image and give a vibrant interpretation of the original , great with textures and bright coloured subjects.
    Very fun program with lots of options and adjustments to play with.
