20% Off on Topaz “Adjust”

About Adjust:
With Topaz Adjust you can give your images the soul and character you envisioned in the field! Unlike our eyes, a camera lens can’t compensate for all the tonal values we see right in front of us. If you shoot something bright, you’ll lose all the details in the shadows. If you shoot something dark, the highlights will be blown out. You can try to correct contrast, details, and vibrancy yourself, but it’s difficult to make images pop like you want.

Topaz Adjust is designed to enhance three characteristics: contrast, detail, and color. Specializing in producing vivid images, Adjust uses Topaz’s adaptive exposure, adaptive saturation, and even includes our cutting-edge detail enhancement algorithms to give you the secret “oomph” ingredients that make your images stand out.

Major features introduced in the latest version of Adjust include:

High DPI Display Support for Windows.
High DPI monitors now display Adjust and Simplify properly. The application GUI has been updated to display correctly on 4k monitors.

Preserve Image Metadata.
Adjust and Simplify now preserve all image metadata.

Separation of User Data and Program Files.
Computer user accounts now store saved effects separately for each computer user. User-created presets are now saved in user specific data locations, in their own separate folder. Once you log off your computer user account, your custom effects stay private!

Import Your Custom Topaz Effects Easily.
Adjust and Simplify automatically imports all of your saved effects from previous versions!
