An example workflow using Topaz Labs and Skylum Software.

Hi everyone,

I thought I’d post a workflow example using one of my shots from my recent visit to All Saints Church, Kingston Upon Thames.

Original image.


Lens corrections and corrected verticals in DXO PhotoLab 2 + Viewpoint 3, my standard RAW editing software.

As this image was shot at ISO 1600 I used Topaz Labs’ A.I Clear to remove the noise, more apparent in the full sized crops below.

Sharpened using Topaz Labs’ Sharpen A.I. The effect is quite subtle but noticeable in full size image. Full sized crops:

HDR from Skylum Software”s Aurora HDR 2019

A few adjustment made to taste usingย Sklyum Software’s Luminar 3 including White Balance correction and here’s the final result. I also wanted to restore some of the colour and contrast in the stained glass window over the doorway.


This was a quick edit but I think that it shows the awesome power of these Artificial Intelligence software products from these companies and the original image again for comparison.


Kind regards
