My Favorite Photoshop Filters

I get a lot of emails asking which Photoshop filter plugins I use on my images.  By far, my favorites are the Topaz filters.  I like the fact that they offer easy-t0-use presets, but also allow you to go in and fine tune the look as much as you want. I don’t really endorse too many photography items, but this one is must-have in my opinion.

I thought I would post a few videos from my YouTube channel that show the ones I use most often.  At the end of the post, I’ll even tell you how to get them a discounted price!


First off is Topaz Adjust – by far, my favorite.  It is perfect for giving images a little bit of extra snap and impact.  This video is from a few years back, but still gives a good idea of what the program does.

BW Effects 2

Another favorite is Topaz BW Effects 2. As the name implies, this one specializes in black and white images. It even has some nice sepia-toned, stylized ones as well.  Presets galore!!!

Of course, they have plenty of other products- those are just my two favorites.

Save some money!

Want to get some great software at an even better price.  Follow this link to the TopazLabs website and place your order. Then use the coupon code ” larryphoto15″ (without the quotes) and you will get a 15% discount.  How cool is that?

Best of luck with your image-making!


  1. I’ve just started dipping my toes into the world of Photoshop and to be honest it’s been a bit of a steep learning curve so far. These filters sound pretty handy. I’ll definitely give them a run at some stage soon.

      Steep learning curve is an understatement! Just gotta break it up into small parts and focus on learning one thing at a time.
