    So, today I shall be taking delivery of PS CS5 (I've always done my editing in LR and maybe PSE/Gimp occasionally).

    Elsewhere, I see you can get a discount on the Topaz suite of plug-ins through Scott Kelby's site.

    So is the suite any good? What does the panel think?

    I'm a Topaz user (and also have the Nik and OnOne Suites as well). Topaz' price point is the most competitive of the three. I don't use every app in the suite but the suite is good value still. Adjust is probably the most useful and B&W effects is also useful. Denoise works well also. Lens Effects and In Focus are also quite useful.

    They have a 30 day trial and video tutorials so you can try before you buy.

    I use Topaz B & W which I find useful. I don't use it a lot but it was very cheap!

    Thanks for the comments. I'm holding fire and once I'm a bit more up to speed on on CS5, I'll try the free trials.
