Intelligent Contrast Technology (Click to Learn More)

Have you ever blown out your highlights by increasing image contrast? You won’t ever again. Topaz Clarity uses intelligent contrast enhancement technology to increase the impact and depth of your image completely naturally. This unique approach makes it almost impossible to create artifacts and halos – and gives you more powerful photos with less effort.

Features introduced in Topaz Clarity:

  1. Selective Contrast Control. With Clarity, we have developed a cutting-edge process of selecting specific contrast variations in your original image, allowing you to quickly target and then increase or decrease the contrast and clarity in that specific variation.
  2. Breakthrough Halo-Free Algorithm. Boost contrast and clarity without emphasizing transitions between light and dark areas, eliminating the common problem of halos, noise and artifacts.
  3. Advanced Hue/Saturation/Luminance Technology. Using IntelliColor technology, you can easily enhance your image with the HSL filter, getting stronger, yet more natural HSL adjustments.
  4. Re-Imagined Masking Workflow. The masking module, now attached to each adjust- ment tab contains a comprehensive set of tools including an edge-aware brush, gradi- ent mask, smart feather tool, color aware tool and more.
  5. User Interface Design. With Clarity, we have continued to develop a cleaner, more modern and efficient interface to improve usability, workflow and overall aesthetics.
