Topaz Clarity - initial testing  
 
Posted: may 28, 2013
 
     
  I have done some "Before and After" tests with the new Clarity software and thought I would share my initial impressions by way of some examples from some of my recent shoots. For the following photos, I applied presets and did not go into the sliders and masking features of the program.

  Conclusion  
     
  Thus far, I would say this software offers a slightly improved photo depending on the original photo. I have tried some photos where the software just didn't seem to be applicable. Perhaps I should have but I did not include any of those photos here.

I plan to test Clarity a bit more before I decide if the extra effort and an additional TIFF file in storage is worth the results.
