I recently downloaded Topaz Detail 3, a much welcomed upgrade to its predecessor!  Topaz Detail 2 was great for adding detail to any image, but I found it had its limitations to only add detail.  Topaz Detail 3 has gone above and beyond the scope of Detail 2 by adding some extremely powerful post processing options to the already incredible detail adjustments.

I find myself looking at Detail 3 more and more as a one stop post processing workshop.  It has some very exciting features that mimic the Camera Raw Basic interface.  The introduction of the ever powerful Highlight and Shadow adjustments has made Detail 3 flicker pretty hard on my post processing radar.  Whether you are editing a single RAW file (like the tree below) or a tone mapped HDR image (like the Barbers chair below) Topaz Detail 3 can make some striking post processing modifications.

Check out these before and after shots as well as the video tutorial to see if Topaz Detail 3 has a place in your photographic workflow!
