Topaz Labs has released Topaz Detail, a Photoshop plug-in to manipulate image detail, sharpness, and toning without creating visual artifacts like overshooting or halos.
The company said Topaz Detail uses new advancements in imaging technology that gives it the unique ability to greatly manipulate image detail and sharpen images without any signs of regular sharpening artifacts.
â€œIf you wanted to sharpen an image in the past, you had to be very careful to make sure that there were no halos or other artifacts,â€ said Albert Yang, President of Topaz Labs. â€œTopaz Detailâ€™s new and proprietary algorithm completely solves this issue. Photographers can now both sharpen images and manipulate specific detail types without fear of unsightly image artifacts.â€
Topaz Detail retails for $40 and is compatible with both Windows and Intel-based Mac OSX.
