Topaz Simplify

The Topaz Simplify plug-in allows you to create stunning art from photos by transforming regular digital images into beautiful works-of-art. With Simplify, you can achieve a variety of creative art effects including: watercolors, textured oil paintings, cartoon-like images, abstracts, charcoal drawings, line art, and photorealistic paintings – giving your photography a true creative edge.

The unique size-based technology in Topaz Simplify processes your photo in the same way a true artist would: it eliminates detail-clutter and leaves behind only the essence and natural structure of the photo. By selectively removing unnecessary image clutter, Simplify helps you create a bold and powerful piece of art in just a few clicks.

  • Intuitive edge-aware selective brush used to dodge, burn, smooth and brush out effects.
  • Integration of the „Apply” button, offering the ability to stack presets and settings, creating stronger and personalized effects.
  • Addition of the new histogram and curve tools.
  • Finishing Touches Tab with tools to add vignettes, tone and transparency.

Detail Simplified

Topaz Simplify uses a proprietary Topaz Labs image processing engine based on multi-level topological decomposition. Simply put, „topological decomposition” enables Topaz Simplify to choose exactly what size of image features to keep and which ones to throw away, all while retaining the original photo’s integrity. When applied to photos, this has a great effect: you retain the spirit of your original photo while determining exactly which features you want to keep, and in what style. Instead of having to select between a few cookie cutter effects, this technology allows you to tailor an original effect, customize it for your photo, and make it completely your own.
