Topaz Labs Texture Effects is a new Photographs Tool, that allows users to create a variety of textured, toned, and lighting effects in a fraction of the time it takes in other editing software. The program includes a library of over 150 expertly crafted effects, an extensive collection of texture assets (275+ high-resolution assets!), and instant access to effects other Topaz users have shared with the new Topaz Community. That means no more scouring the web for a look that inspires you. With Texture Effects, inspiration is only a click away!

I had a play with a pre-release version of Topaz Texture Effects & it certainly looks a very powerful creative tool for photographers, in the brief time I have used it I am impressed with the ability to tone and add lighting effects to images. The Bokeh effects also look promising too for use in macro images too.
Here is an example of some autumn trees.  Only Topaz Texture Effects was used to transform this image.

Like other Topaz software, the program can be used in a standalone program, or integrated as a plugin into Photoshop CC. Topaz Texture Effects is also very easy to use, with the adjustments being controlled by fully adjustable sliders.
