Topaz Simplify 3
Topaz Simplify is a plug-in that transforms regular photos into works of art. It can change them into watercolors, line art and photorealistic paintings. Through a unique size-based technology, it processes the photo like an artist would. It eliminates the clutter and leaves only the essence of the image.
The goal of the technology within Topaz Simplify is to provide unlimited artistic possibilities for photographers. It doesn’t just provide cookie cutter effects, but rather gives you the tools to create your own personal and unique photographic masterpieces.
Topaz Simplify uses a proprietary image process engine based on multi-level topological decomposition wherein it suppresses and recovers detail base on a specific range of sizes determined by the user. Simply put, this plug-in simplifies the details of an image much the same way a painter would – by eliminating the non-essential items from the photo. It breaks down the image into a base image and the edges of the objects in the image and allows you to control both aspects independently.
