Topaz is working on a new structure for its software effects called Topaz Studio, and it’s now in open public beta! Topaz Studio enables Topaz to deliver new technology more rapidly than through the traditional one-by-one plug-in model.
You can check it out for free here (Windows or Mac) or by visiting the graphic on the Plugs ’N Pixels home page.
Give it a spin during April and be sure to send your feedback!
What is Topaz Studio?
Topaz Studio offers precise, straightforward, natural tools like Basic Color Adjustments to streamline new adjustments. Find an effect you love, add the Adjustments you want, then save your custom effect to have instant access to that exact workflow later.
You can even share your effects with other Topaz Studio users through the integrated Topaz Community. That means no more switching between community or local, all effects now show when you pick a category or search (as long as you’re online).
•Multi-image. Open and work on multiple images within the application simultaneously
•Snapshot feature. To apply your effect to your image and allow you to use it as the input image (saves as a new image in the image tray)
•All effects now show in the effect view. No more local/community separation
•Ability to drag and drop multiple images at once
•Scopes to show your RGB, HSL and image details to refine your looks
•Photoshop and Lightroom plug-in support
•New mask interface with enhanced calculations and ability to combine multiple mask types
•Host Topaz Plugins
•Access All Adjustments during Open Beta

Remember, this version is still in Beta, NOT the public release version. Feel free to use to create example images, but please know they are still working on solidifying what the release version will look like based on user feedback.
