Troubleshooting and Guides:

Using Topaz Labs as a plugin to Adobe Lightroom Classic:

To learn "How to use Topaz Labs as a plugin to Adobe Lightroom Classic" go to this link here. 

If you don't see Topaz Studio 2 in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom:

When you install the Topaz Labs software it should automatically put the plugins into Photoshop or Lightroom for you.

If you are not seeing the Topaz Labs software as a plugin to an external editor, try reinstalling. Here is a link to our Download Page. Make sure the external editor and any other applications are shut down and completely closed when you do the installation. 

After the installation, invoke the plugin in Photoshop under the Filter >> Topaz Studio 2

Lightroom you use Photo in the menu bar >> Edit In >> Topaz Studio 2  

If that does not work, try opening up the Topaz Labs software first, then open up Photoshop or Lightroom after. Sometimes that will kick the software plugin into gear.

How to Put My Topaz Plugin File where Photoshop will Find It (Windows):

Check that you have a link to your plugin file in the appropriate Photoshop plugin folder.
