Add Electric Effects To Your Underwater Photos: A Topaz Glow Review

I'm just going to skip the intro here and jump right to my point: Topaz Glow is my favorite Photoshop plugin of the moment.

At a time of year where everywhere I turn, everything is lit up for Christmas, it just seems right to light up my photos, too.

You might expect every photo processed with Glow to have the same look. But that couldn't be farther from the truth. The plugin includes about a billion presets, and then you can tweak your photos from there.

And Topaz Glow doesn't just leave your photos with the lights-in-the-tree twinkle. I mean, it can. But where Glow really shines (ahem) is in making an in-your-face, red-light-district, girls-girls-girls neon effect. It's an acid trip. It's the reflections of traffic lights at night in the rain.

And it's so, so rad.

I spent no time at all debating which underwater photos to doctor up first. The answer was obvious: nudibranchs. Because what glows more than a nudibranch? What's more electric than a technicolor sea slug? But they can shine brighter. It's time to light up the reef even more.

It's a reef rave, and you're invited. Check out some of the electrified nudibranchs I made with Topaz Glow.
