How to Run Topaz Plugins From Photoshop Lightroom

How to run Topaz plugins from Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

As you already know Topaz has excellent a must have Photoshop, Lightroom and Photoshop Elements plugins. In this tutorial I will explain you how to run Topaz plugins from Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. First off course you need to install Topaz plugins if you do not have them already on your machine. I have all Topaz plugins installed including Fusion Express 2 which is free by the way, and let me give you one more information: if you have Topaz plugins installed with Photoshop for example and you plan to install Lightroom 5, you will have instant access to Topaz plugins because Lightroom is smart enough to pick up Topaz plugins and make them available from Photo menu or on right click on image. Lets go step by step.

Step 1 Run Fusion Express

Although you can run Topaz plugins from Library, Slideshow, Print module, I will assume that you are in Develop module and you have done some basic adjustments. There are 2 options to run Fusion Express 2: from Photo > Edit In > Fusion Express 2 or on right/Cmd + click on image > Edit In > Fusion Express 2.

Step 2 Choose Edit option

In second step you will need to choose Edit option and I will suggest you to select first from top (Edit a Copy with Lightroom Adjustments) or to edit image with Lightroom adjustments applied. Since you will work with duplicated image to which are applied adjustments if you follow my recommendation, at the bottom of dialog in Copy File Options section, you have options for new, duplicated image that will be created.
