Topaz Clean

Topaz Labs is offering the Topaz Clean plug-in at 50% off now through May 31. Topaz Clean normally runs $29.99 but will be $14.99 with the promo code mayclean.

Topaz Clean lets you smooth edges and surfaces in your photos. Clean has three main controls, described by Topaz Labs below:

  1. Smoothness: smoothes the surfaces of your photo. Useful for removing blemishes from skin, removing dust + noise, creating a “flatter” texture, and more.
  2. Edges: smoothly enhances edges with a unique process that looks “vectorized”. This creates smooth and well-defined lines in your photo that work great on image features like hair and eyelashes.
  3. Texture: recovers and refines original detail in your image to keep it looking natural. For example, re-introduce original skin texture in your portraits to prevent your post-processing from looking too overdone or “plastic”.

It works as a plug-in for Photoshop, Lightroom and Aperture – or it works standalone too with Topaz’s photoFXlab app.  In order to get the deal price, use the couple code mayclean during the checkout process here on Topaz Labs’ website.

DaVinci Resolve 11 Edit Page

Just a few years ago, DaVinci Resolve was a boutique, all-in-one hardware/software solution for colorists that was a six-figure product. The price currently stands at $30k; however, Blackmagic began offering DaVinci Resolve for Mac in 2010 for $995, which was a huge deal at the time. The price still stands at $995 for the full version; however, Blackmagic also offers a Resolve Lite version for free. The $995 full version is also included for free with the $1995 Blackmagic Cinema Camera and higher level cameras.

In DaVinci Resolve 10, we got a timeline for making some basic editing functions when we import a XML from a supported NLE. Again, it was a huge move that further extended the value of Resolve.

Blackmagic announced DaVinci Resolve 11 at NAB 2014 and they have stepped up the game even further. Now, you can start and finish your editing project in Resolve 11 with no need open another NLE.

That’s right; Blackmagic just jumped head-first into the NLE market. [Read more...]
