New Name: Glow in Studio

Topaz Glow has officially moved into Topaz Studio and has been renamed to Glow in Studio. This change has been made to remove the unnecessary version numbers we provide with the previous versions (e.g Glow 1.0.2 and Glow 2). Moving Glow into Topaz Studio will enable us to focus on the overall mission of improving the entire Topaz Labs experience, from start to finish. With this new name, we begin the journey to a more integrated, complete, and user-focused product, where the possibilities are endless.

Now inside Topaz Studio

Going forward, you will now access Topaz Glow from the Topaz Studio application, in the Workflow Panel along the left side of the window. Here's where you'll find it:

Plugin Access

Keeping with Topaz Labs tradition, you can still launch Glow directly, as a Photoshop plug-in. However, we've moved the location of the Filters menu entry, so you know you're launching Glow in Studio! Please note the new location:

Before

Filter → Topaz Labs → Topaz Glow 2...

After

after_Glow_ps.gif

Filter → Topaz Studio → Glow...

Can't find it?

External Editor Access

You can still launch Glow from hosts that support external editors, like Lightroom. However, we've changed what you need to choose from that list just a bit, so you know you're launching Glow in Studio! Please note the new location:

Before

Photo → Edit In → Topaz Glow 2

After
