Topaz Simplify started off as possibly not useful software for me…to be perfectly honest. However, now that I have tried the entire Topaz Bundle, I can say that there have been times that this plug-in has improved my images, and has been exactly what I needed.

You can view the full size image by right clicking on it and choosing “view image”.
One of the great features in Topaz Simplify is that you can click on any of the presets to view the effect on your image, and you can simply click the “original” tab to bring the image back to it’s unedited state.

You can also create custom presets as well. To create custom presets, you would need to first make your desired adjustments on the right side of the plug-in window. Then, you can click the “Save” button on the lower left, you will see the following at this point:

Anyway, I enjoy using this plug-in for its artsy effect on my photos. I’m not sure that I would have purchased it on its own, but as part of the Topaz product bundle, I’m happy with it.
