Legacy Programs & License Keys
Get download links, license key instructions, and information about programs and plugins that are no longer developed by Topaz Labs. Also included in this article is information about replacement programs for our legacy products as well.
What Are Legacy Programs?
Legacy programs are older or outdated programs that might still be used by someone, even though newer options are available. Basically, legacy programs are programs that we've discontinued selling and updating or have replaced with a newer program.
Potential Conflicts and Limited Support
While we are not aware of any specific conflicts, legacy programs may not work on your computer in the future due to changes in your operating system, hardware, various drivers, or even conflicting software. As a result, the support we are able to provide for these programs is limited.
Free Upgrades To Newer Programs
If you own some of our legacy software, you may be eligible for a replacement program for free. You can check for your specific free upgrade options here.
New License Keys
As discontinued programs, we are unable to create new license keys for legacy programs. You'll need your original license key to activate the program if re-activation is needed. Your legacy keys can be found in your user account as noted below, or our support agents can look up license keys from your www.topazlabs.com account. We'll need the account email or other identifying information to access your account details.
License Keys for Legacy Programs
While our current AI programs only require a user email and password to access the program, our legacy programs used a license key (sometimes referred to as a serial number) to authenticate ownership.
You can find your unique license key for any legacy products you own in the My Products section of your www.topazlabs.com account.
Here's what it looks like in your account. Your key will be a series of numbers where you see XXXXs in this screenshot.
If you are unable to locate your license keys, please contact us directly for assistance.
Classic Studio Downloads
Note: Studio 1 is commonly referred to as Classic Studio. Also, if you go way back with Topaz Labs, PhotoFXlab replaced the Fusion Express 2, which was in turn replaced by Classic Studio. You'd have to be an early customer to have either of those programs, but Classic Studio replaces both.
Classic Plugin Downloads
Note: If you purchased these classic plugins/programs in the past, you will need your license key to re-activate your program after you install it. Classic Studio does not require a license key.
Classic Plugin Replacements
Note: Many of our legacy programs have been replaced by our new applications. If you own any of these programs, you may be eligible to upgrade to a replacement program for free. You can check for your specific upgrade offers here. Please note that not every program qualifies for a free upgrade even if it was included in a replacement. Your www.topazlabs.com account will specify which free upgrades are available.
