Hi again...to my knowledge Topaz Adjust is a plug in for Photoshop. It also works in Photoshop Elements, which is way less expensive.

They just released a stand alone software called PhotoFXLab which allows you to use any of the Topaz labs plugins without going into a software. You can see how it works on You Tube

But...if you are interested in photography you really need to learn to use a photo editing program. It doesn't have to be the outrageously expensive Photoshop CS6. You can get Photoshop Elements for about $40 or Paint Shop Pro X4 for around the same price. I used PSP X4 for 90% of my workflow even with owning Elements because I know that software inside and out. There are so many tutorials online for these softwares you can be up and running in no time.

Scott, Kevin, Roger (and anyone else of course).. Let's talk LR4 presets and the gold tones on the ships.

I've been trying to create a few (using pics from last years Dream cruise) starter presets to use on my upcoming pics but not very successfully.

Have you guys created any yet to help tone down the yellows and gold tints.. Want to help a girl out and start me down a path

Kelly are you talking about shots from inside the ship? I shoot in RAW and adjust my WB in LR4. You can get some funky colors inside but easy to change the Temperature then copy and paste WB to whatever looks right. Maybe post something so we can see what needs to be corrected.

Like Roger, I also shoot raw and adjust WB in LR. I use the eyedropper and click on things that may be grey first then adjust the WB sliders as necessary. There is really no preset to deal with the various lighting around the ship.

Hi Kelly. I also shoot in RAW adjusting WB using ACR. You might also want to try using a cooling filter on the final image (around 20%) to help tone down the yellows.

I always shoot in raw and play with the WB and Temp sliders as well. It just crossed my mind tonight to ask if any of you had created starter presets to save a little time.

Got to love those nice calm yellow and gold DCL color tones hehehe
