That is no longer there and in file i only have choice to save look , or can only save as a ts2 file???. it was there a week or so when i was last in ts2.
also when closing t s 2 down i get this!(
file has been changes do you want to export yes or no.
when i cl yes it goes back to my folder and changes the original pic, where as before it would save a copy of the worked pic. thanks Denise
denioz is correct. This is a bug – at least on my iMac system – that Topaz should have fixed by now.
I have tried launching the standalone from Photo Mechanic, Photo Mechanic Plus and PhotoLine. In each case it seems to behave as a plugin with no Export option to save as a jpg or tif. Only save as a project.
The same bug occurs when a file – jpg in my tests – is dragged from the Photo Mechanic Contact sheet to the Topaz Studio 2 shortcut on the iMac Dock.
Sorry I’m feeling a bit slow here, if you are launching TS 2 from another host (PM, PMPM, PL) then you are running a plugin, right?
If the TS 2 icon is sitting on your computer desktop and you double click that icon to launch then do you get the standalone version as you should? (Or, however one launches a program directly from a desktop with Mac, if not dbl click).
If you launch from another application it will only save back to the image you launch from thereby acting as a plugin where you use the Accept tick to update the original recieved. Obviously this will cause issues if you use Photo Mechanic because it can send the image if it is a raw file, and allow it to be opened directly.
Which is basically what I said. The question is why does TS2 behave this way. One can do the same thing with Capture One, Affinity Photo, ON1 One Photo RAW, PhotoLine, etc. and the editor offers a Save As/Export option.
The same applies to the drag and drop to the iMac Dock.
Thank you all for answers, I can export as per advise if i dont drag and drop my image to ts2 tray on bottom of pc. but if i cl on 2 of the options to open from up the top of pc. and this gives me the export option.
should i still put in a ticket for, as i was able to open by dragging and dropping a few weeks ago. or is this a bug that has been looked into or should i submit a ticket.
