I found that setting the LR External Editor file naming method will apply that change to all plug-ins. Not just the one selected.
My other Topaz apps save their resulting files by appending “Topaz Noise AI” or “Topaz Sharpen AI”. But Topaz Photo AI just saves the file with a number appended to the file name. I wonder why?
And how is your Photo AI presenting you with an export options dialog, but mine simply saves the file.
In stand-alone, you get the Export dialogue screen… If Topaz gets the file via a Plug-in from a host program, it just returns what it gets back to the host… Seems logical to me… If I’m using a host editor and only using Topaz via a plug-in, I just want Topaz to return my file after making the 3 or 4 feature corrections… Topaz is not a primary editor… I’ll use LR or another full-blown editor for my primary editing… Export sizing and naming is better handled by LR than Topaz…
