Topaz Clean 50% Off Deal Ends Tomorrow

Topaz Clean

Topaz Labs 50% off deal on the Topaz Clean plug-in ends tomorrow, 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.
