This is a panorama I wanted to processed and keep looking like the natural colors and lighting.
Here is the original shot
I checked out just two of the presets in Topaz Studio, Basic Correction (Basic Correction, Precision Contrast, Brightness and Contrast) and A Basic Correction (Reduce Noise, Dehaze, Basic Corrections, Precision Contrast and Brightness/Contrast). I think the results of both looked too processed for my goal of looking natural.
A Basic Correction
I thought that both presets were very nice when added at 20% (and did not really help when I used both)
Basic Correction at 20%
A Basic Correction at 20%
I like the old preset system of Detail, Clarity, Adjust, because there were a lot of presets (logically organized) that you could try fairly quickly. I hope that the current preset system will keep improving.
What do you all think about using Topaz Studio? Which version do you like best? (And feel free to tell me that you like the photo )
