An email alert this morning from Topaz Studios indicates a site wide sale of the pieces that make up the Topaz Studio processing system. Topaz Studio itself is a free download and then you can upgrade all of the parts to their “Pro” level. The sale goes thru May 7th (I think) and offers a 40% discount. I use Topaz Studio for specialty effects and find they have some very helpful corrective aps in the suite. The basic Studio suite is FREE and they claim it always will be along with the upgrades to the aps. This is a good time to try it if you are interested in alternatives to the LR/PS way of life.
