Topaz Labs is a company that sells digital editing software, most of which would be classified as digital filters. Adjust is just one of their software packages, and like all their other packages, has many variations unto itself. They can be found at http://www.topazlabs.com/.

I have recently purchased the 'Bundle' and find their products to be very effective, as well as entertaining, but there is a learning curve. They do have a 30 day free trial, so there is no reason not to try it out, as long as you can devote a decent amount of time to it during your 30 days. Good luck!

Get it. You'll love it. The only problem is wanting to apply the filter (or any of the other filters you're going to want to buy) to every single photo. I have Topaz, Fractalius and Imagenomic filters and have to stop myself from using them on everything. Lots of fun.

In case you decide to take the plunge and purchase Topaz, HERE is a link to the site Light is Magic which has a 15% discount code for it. Just look in the sidebar under 'Affiliates'.

I just picked up the bundle. They had an offer code for $30 off - I think it was intellinoise. It showed up as a popup while I was browsing the Topaz website. I tried the free trials and really liked the products, which is why I bought the bundle.

I purchased Topaz Adjust ver 2.5 and later recieved Topaz Denoise free... Since then all upgrades to ver 3.0 and later ver 4.0 for Denoise and Adjust have been free... They are cheap but very effective filters... Love 'em...

I've been using them in Corel Paint Shop Pro X2 and they also work in Elements ver 7.0....

I will second what DDC said. Your initial impulse is to try Topaz Adjust on every photo, which in the beginning is probably not a bad thing because you will learn much more quickly that the 'wow' factor - even though stunning - really doesn't work with every photo. What I am striving for now is to use the effects for great impact, but then backing off just enough...so that the impact is still there but even viewers who know about Topaz are not totally sure that it has been applied.

I'm imagining this is what Ansel Adams would do with it...
