I edit my photos using multiple programs; topaz labs is one of them. Using LR, you can copy and paste settings from one photo to another. But if I edit my photos using topaz labs, for example, I cant copy and paste what I did into the next photo.
I understand that I can create external presets for photos, but in doing so and selecting it, I'm prompted back to topaz apps, to edit my photo where I have to select the preset again.
In other words, I have to click the preset in LR, to take me back to topaz labs, to select the preset again and edit anew.
Id like to copy and paste topaz edits in LR like I copy and paste lightroom settings too. how can I do this?
You can't - Topaz is another program and not even from Adobe.
If you go to Topaz via Photoshop, you can use smart objects to copy adjustments (assuming Topaz supports the workflow).
