As we are all waiting for maintenance releases for Topaz Studio 2 to bring additional functionality to make the functionality closer to what we are used to in Studio 1, here are some suggestions for the interim period, note this assumes you don’t have a host such as Photoshop, Lightroom, ON1 Photo RAW, Capture One, Affinity Photo or Paintshop Pro etc.
In the interim you can download the previous version of Topaz Studio, which only includes the free Adjustments and other items such as Crop, Heal, Rotation, Flip etc., but also has a Histogram to help you with RAW conversions. Note that some of the functionality will be gradually added to Topaz Studio 2 over the next maintenance releases.
The suggested workflow would be the following in you need Studio 1:
- If you are using RAW files, convert in Studio 1 then save as a TIF/TIFF image to use in Studio 2
- Remember to use the Healing Brush to touch-up before going to Studio 2.
- And Crop and Straighten as is required before going to Studio 2.
- Then after doing your work in Studio 2, if you need to adjust the crop or straighten again go back and do that in Studio 1.
If you already have a host, some listed in the first paragraph, you don’t need to do this. But if you want to, download the Studio 1 version from here.
