Mock topaz affect

If you don't know what the topaz affects are then just Google it. It's wonderful packs of filters that give photos paintingeffects and more. Unfortunately not everyone is able to download or get this to work. So I figured out a way to make a photo seem like it has the topaz affect.

1) Open your photo and duplicate you photo twice just in case you do not like that outcome.

2) Go to Filter> Noise> Reduce Noise. Set your Settings to 10, 0, 0, 0.

3) Once your photo has gone through reduce noise, it will look soft so, sharpen the photo.
