One of the most satisfying feelings for any photography enthusiast is when somebody views one of our photographs and simply says, “wow.”
Photography has always been a two-step art form. First, a photography needs to understand what it takes to make GREAT photographs. Next, they need to know how to finish the visual through post-processing. I find there’s more than enough information available about making great images, composition, camera techniques, and so on. These are things we learn, and never forget once they become ingrained in us through countless presses of the shutter. There are also plenty of tutorials on image-processing, but I often find Lightroom and Photoshop are so powerful that sometimes we spend too much time searching tutorials on how to twist and tweak those pixels. There’s got to be a better way! (sorry, it felt like that belonged there). I’ve found my new favourite plugin that gets my photos all the way there, and 9 times out of 10, I get there with a single-click. I would like to introduce you to Topaz Clarity.
We’ve got CLARITY, they’ve got Clarity…
So just about the same time that we launched our brand new magazine CLARITY, the fine folks at TopazLabs released their own “Clarity” – the ultimate tool for creating compelling and powerful images by intelligently enhancing contrast and clarity with absolutely no halos or artifacts. So really, what we have here are two completely awesome CLARITY products, and although we weren’t in cahoots with the timing of both our launches – we are now.
Give it a Whirl for Free
I first tried out the trial version, which is a free download. After spending hours (literally) exploring and experimenting with the plugin on landscapes, architecture, and even portraits, I was hooked. The presets are great, and ability to mask within the plugin is super-cool.
You can try Topaz Clarity for FREE here. If you decide you’d like to add it to your digital toolbox arsenal, then we can save you a whopping 30% by using our exclusive coupon code: CLARITYPHOTOGRAPHY (This coupon is VERY limited and valid only from Oct 15th – 21st, 2013).

Get Them to “WOW”
I realize we all have our favourite processing methods or software products, and new ones are available all the time. Topaz Clarity truly is the easiest and most natural way to make your photos more powerful.
