Kim: In my last video I showed my post processing procedures and in this one I just want to show another plug-in that I think is really fun which is called Topaz Adjust. I’m going to flatten this image. I went to layer and then flatten them into the bottom and then I’m going to go ahead and make a copy.
And as you go along, I will go ahead and save this because this program tends to crash a lot the Topaz Adjust. So, I’m going to go ahead and pull up my filter and then come down to Topaz Adjust and then Topaz Three.
And it basically comes up and it shows you on the left here all these different options and it kind of gives you a more intensified look and I tend to like this one here, so I’m going to go ahead and click on that one and click, okay.
And sometimes it does add a little bit of extra noise, so I go ahead and run a noise filter on it and click okay, and sometimes this just gives some extra fun dimension to your photos. I have another one here that that I really like it on. Okay, so I pulled up another photo and I just want to show you how it looks with this one.
And this one I think has a lot of fun options that look really nice. Again, I tend to like small details with the shininess of the jersey, it just really add some nice touches to it for psychedelic. Let’s just go ahead and try that one. So, we come over here and click, okay, and then maybe it looks like it has a little bit too much noise, so we go filter, noise ware, in this one I’m going to go ahead and do portrait because I want it to remove a lot of noise click, okay.
And if you want to you can just keep running that over until you get rid of some of that noise, but it’s still adds that dimension to it that looks really cool. It’s just kind of a fun technique you can use with you’re photos enjoy.
