Topaz released a new plug in recently, called ReStyle. You can download any of their products for a free thirty day trial, so I thought I’d give it a go. This isn’t a full review or tutorial (I haven’t used it long enough to do either of those). But I have used it a bit so I’ll try to introduce you to some possibilities with three examples I’ve played with. If you want to see the “before” versions of these, I’ve included them towards the end of the post.
On the way home, we stopped by the Fort Christmas Historical Park in Christmas, Florida. They were having their 35th annual “Cracker Christmas” event where they provide demonstrations of early settler life in Florida. There were also some Civil War reenactments going on.
Skills and taste develop over time. Reviewing your older images for things you may want to change is a good idea. Just don’t spend too much time on post processing – leave enough for new images too!
This morning I reprocessed a photo that I made last October at Viera Wetlands. Below is a series of images that show you a progression from the original images to the final result. Look in the captions for each image for details on what I did, and scroll to the bottom of the post to see the most recent version. You can also click on these photos to see larger versions.
I guess you can tell I’m not a straight out of the camera, photo journalist type photographer.
