Spent most of the day hanging around with my dad and didn’t get a chance to get out and take pictures. I decided to play around some more in Topaz Studio 2 with this photo I took last Sunday. I used one of the artistic looks, then added 3 textures. For the final step I blended the original photo into the artistic version. In Topaz Studio v1, you used to be able to add a photo into a layer…so far in v2 I’m not seeing this option which is why I used Affinity Photo to do the blending; maybe its on their list of things to add (there are some other things missing in v2 that used to be in v1).
