The application also has a very large library of presets that are either, generated by the company or by a personal contributor that owns the program like you and me.
In other words, each person that owns the program can use all the tools provided by the program and others; like images and textures to create unique editing presets.
Those presets can then be saved and submitted to the Topaz Studio Library where other users can download them and use them in their workflows.
In essence, this ability allows the program to grow and become this enormous repository of user-submitted edits. Each one unique and completely free.
The program also allows you, as a user, to download and change said presets with your own settings and textures.
The possibilities are endless!!
Among the preset categories, you can find Action, Black and White, Duotone, Fine Art, Landscape, Portraits, Sunsets and Skies, Urban and Vintage Presets among many, many others.
The folks from Topaz Labs have really created a winner here!
