Ok, I am a subscriber to Adobe, paying $14/month for LR and PS. I also have purchased Topaz Clarity and Black & White and enjoy using both. For some strange reason my GPU is supposed to be supported in LR but is not and I have to toggle GPU acceleration off, so the processing is less than optimal (FYI it’s a Nvidia Gforce GTX 960 4gb). It’s put me off from continuing using LR for photo editing, I could save some money by ditching Adobe and using other excellent free software such as RawTherapee.
One of the things that has me stuck with Adobe however is the Topaz Plugins, and this morning I was notified by email of the Topaz ‘Detail’ for sale, however I noticed for the first time this mentioning of ‘Studio’.
I find the whole Topaz forums and website a real mess tbh, it is not clear at all what or how to go about implementing any Topaz packages, indeed I recall finding contradictory information months ago when trying to get Clarity and B&W to work in LR…
So I’m having to write a post here hoping someone can help shed some light on what my current options are and whether I am barking up the right or wrong tree;
- Am i gathering that Topaz now has a Studio of it’s own, something separate from LR?
- Can I use Clarity and B&W in this ‘new’ Studio? (as well I take it ‘Detail’ should I choose to purchase it)?
