A recurring theme in Topaz B&W Effects is that it helps you replicate traditional workflows with a modern twist. For example, traditionally you control tone with color filters, but in B&W Effects you can tweak the specific color and intensity of that filter.

Another example: traditionally you’d have to manually dodge and burn your photos for good contrast. While Topaz B&W Effects still lets you to do this, it also offers a faster way: the Adaptive Exposure feature takes inspiration from modern HDR processing techniques to quickly create incredible tonal contrast and texture detail.

Have you ever converted a B&W image and been surprised at how flat it looks? You’ll never have that problem again. Topaz B&W Effects is an end-to-end workflow for B&W photography that will help you consistently create stunning images.

Tonal contrast

Tonal contrast is everything in a B&W image. Instead of simply desaturating your image, Topaz B&W Effects converts color information into beautiful and natural image tones.

  • Add more visual impact with darker blacks and whiter whites in your photos.
  • Get natural results taken directly from your original image’s color information.
  • Built-in Zone System tool to help you get the optimal exposure and tone in every image.

Authentic film look

B&W Effects is designed to let you create any kind of B&W look that you desire. Some of the most beautiful of these have their roots in film photography. Topaz B&W Effects helps you recreate that authentic film feel.

  • Use authentic film grain styles that were physically scanned from real film.

Each tool in Topaz B&W Effects focuses on creating better tone or texture. You can’t go wrong – no matter what workflow you use, Topaz B&W Effects will help you create powerful and emotional black and whites.

“Most people forget the importance of mid-gray tones. Mid-grays are what gives substance to a B&W image and makes it juicy – they tell the story. I love how Topaz B&W Effects handles the mid-greys in a very subtle and precise way.“
“Topaz is hands down my favorite plug-in and I use it daily. It’s easy and intuitive, which allows me to tap into my creative juices and make the images I imagined in the field.”
“For my post processing I use all Topaz plug-ins, some of which are truly amazing. I especially like the fact that I can start by trying many preset options, which makes it easy to see different options in minutes instead of hours.”
