Afternoon Tea


Love it … beautiful work …

Very stylish.Would love some detail of how this effect was achieved.

Nice pp work …

Created using Topaz Studio and GIMP … something like

  1. Applied a highkey preset I created (Reduce Noise, Basic Adjustment - exp 0.8, clar 0.6, shadow 0.3, high 0.35), Sharpen)

  2. applied the highkey preset again

  3. used a preset Flands that I have shared with community at 40%

  4. used Mex Bike (shared with community) screen 40%

  5. applied BA PC BC HSL preset (shared)

  6. Applied Native Animal preset (shared)

  7. used a color overlay to create a vignette

  8. Added a canvas texture in GIMP.


Excellent work Shazzy

I tried to follow your recipe but two of your presets are not showing up in the Community. Your highkey preset was a winner.

Which two Elle? Not sure why they wouldn’t unless it has to do with which of the enhancements are used. I can send you copies of the settings for them if you really want them.

Glad you liked the highkey

Flands and BA PC BC HSL presets did not show up in the community initially although BA PC BC HSL is showing up now when I just checked. The presets were only loading through the H’s using All… but I was able to get the other two by typing in the Preset name… All is not all, the slider runs out of room. Appreciate the offer tho. :grinning:

Hi @ShazzyCo, I could not find the high key or Flands presets in the community? All the others were ok…thanks again. If you can not re-share them, I wouldn’t mind you sending me the settings for the 2 I mentioned in a pm? I really like this style/look you created.

Shazzy gives the parameters for the high key in her post. You can make up your own and save it…
