This is the filter that I bought first and is the one that I generally suggest people start with. I can tell you now that you had just as well buy the bundle now. It will save you umm, a bundle and once you play with Adjust you’ll be sliding down that slope to plug-in in addiction and buying them all anyway.

Here is the before Topaz Adjust version of the prairie sunrise photo. Quite a dramatic difference!

I seem to use Photo Pop, Dramatic, Gritty, Neutralizer, Simplify and Spicify (crowd pics below) the most.

I really like the grunge effects on the “right” landscape and I use Simplify quite often before I make a painting from an image.
