Topaz just announced a new product called “Glow”. I never was a big fan of the overuse of the oil-paint-filter in Photoshop and so I was quite happy when Photoshop CC2014 removed it altogether. My first thought was “Strike, now we just have to deal with HDR. The overuse of the oil-paint-filter is eventually over”.

I might was wrong. With this new plug in from Topaz, “Glow”, this fed could take on a new form…

We saw a somewhat similar effect a while ago, called the “Fractalius Filter” by Redfieldplugins. So far, I think this is quite a nice filter for everyone who’s in the fantasy-business, doing dreamy composites or “awesomify” sleeping cat pictures to get fierce tigers.

You can buy this Photoshop filter until December 31st for 49.99$ by using the code “INTERGLOW”.

I think can safely say that our Facebook timelines will get quite colorful very soon.

P.S. We were not sure how to tag this one, for some it may be a piece of news about an amazing plug in, for others it’s an early warning…

    To me it seems a little expensive for a one trick pony. I think it’ll date quite quickly too (although the flying birds pic is kind of cool).

    Beautiful effect but a bit pricey.

    I’ll wait for the GIMP plugin.

    I think the plugin Fractalius from redfield does this as well and is really great too!

    It looks nice, but wouldn’t use it all the time and too much money for me… was hoping to find an alternative that was not quite so expensive
