Topaz Impression

Art is a unique expression of individual creativity, not a simple visual style. And although Impression does have pre-built effects to start you off, its ultimate goal is to help you create your own personal masterpieces. Impression is designed to help the user transform images into a realistic looking work of fine art, The name of this program was inspired by the style of painting called Impressionism, Impressionism was a reaction to Realism, a style of painting that aimed to depict the subject exactly as shown.  Painters like Monet, Renoir and Degas branched out of the norm and paid less attention to a scene’s details by painting with sketchy brushwork and thick strokes (impasto).
Topaz Impression contains a diverse range of tools, including several brushes and dozens
of textures. Working with the selective parameters, you can control the size, thickness, hue and so on of the decided medium to create your masterpiece
The best start how to discover all secrets of Impression, is to vist the Impression gallery HERE:
Main Features.  There are some unique features in Topaz Impression:
1. Presets and Collections inspired by art history and different artistic styles. From ancient to modern art, you might just find that the Da Vinci Sketch, Chiaroscuro or Cezanne preset is your favorite.
2. Simulated brush strokes. Actual media strokes using oil paint, colored pencil, watercolor and so on were scanned and masked out with Topaz ReMask to put into the program’s algorithm.
3. HSL Technology in 8-Colors. Easily adjust the hue, saturation and lightness of the overall image or by individually selecting one of 8 different colors.
4. Lighting Effects. Add to your artwork by adjusting the contrast, brightness, vignette and light direction.
5. Textures. Choose from dozens of surface textures including brick, canvas, wood, rock and several different types of paper.
6. User Interface Design. With Impression, we have continued to develop a cleaner, more modern and efficient interface to improve usability, workflow and overall aesthetics.

Imagenomic Portraiture Plug-in

Novinky při plnění cartridgi do tiskáren a renovaci tonerů

Provedl jsem si náhodný průzkum u návštěvníků svého portálu, který byl zaměřen na využívání moderního servisu při plnění  cartridgí do tiskáren a renovace tonerů. Zjistil jsem , že u části uživatelů tiskáren stále ještě panuje určitá nedůvěra k této formě úsporného řešení tisku v domácnosti a v kancelářích. Podle získaných informací, je to způsobeno zčásti nedostatkem informací o technického pokroku, kterého bylo v této oblasti dosaženo a zčásti nepříliš vstřícným chováním pracovníků některých servisů. 
Rozhodl jsem se uvést argumenty, které by měly tyto obavy rozptýlit. 
Jako příklad mi bude sloužit můj oblíbený servis Fillpoint, jmenovitě jeho pobočka v Plzni v Prešovské ulici. 
Především: Fillpoint používá speciální stroje s vakuovým prostředím a renovuje kazety originálními inkousty, tonery a komponenty podle typu a čísla kazety. Plnění inkoustových kazet provádí Fillpoint v provozovně na počkání, laserové tonery renovují do druhého dne. Při pravidelné recyklací v servisu máte svoji originální kazetu pod kontrolou - chráníte svůj obal. 
Servis Fillpoint vám poradí s výběrem při koupi nové tiskárny vzhledem k nejlevnějšímu způsobu doplňování. Fillpoint je v Plzni umístěn v centru městapřesto, pokud nemáte čas k osobní návštěvě provozovny, servis přijímá a zasílá cartridge i poštou. 
Nakonec 2 důležité  informace
- Fillpoint má pro své stálé zákazníky velmi pozoruhodné slevy ( až 25% ) na plnění inkoustových kazet
- Využíváním služeb servisu Fillpoint uspoříte až 80 % oproti nákupu originálních kazet.
Bližší podrobnosti o technologii, zasílání cartridgí a zejména srovnání úspor, najdete na webové stránce Fillpointu: www.fillpoint.cz

AKVIS Points - Review

With the AKVIS Points software you can easily create gorgeous works of art using the pointillism technique. You can make paintings in the style of Georges Seurat and Paul Signac! Discover the world of bright colors!
Pointillism is a painting technique characterized by applying of separate brush strokes in the form of dots or spots. This style is an offshoot of Impressionism. A complex hue is decomposed into individual colors, which are displayed on the canvas as dotted strokes, small dabs of paint of pure color. The optical mixing of these dots gives us the visual perception of an entire painting.
Some Features
- The software includes ready-to-use AKVIS presets which help you start working. It's possible to create your own presets by saving your favorite photo-to-painting settings.
- The program offers the choice between a flat paper and a rough surface that makes the impression even more vivid. It's also possible to add a signature, an inscription, or a copyright watermark to the picture.
- The software supports the Batch Processing feature which helps you to automatically convert a series of images with the same effect settings. It is useful when you need to create a number of paintings at the same style for a book or a blog or to convert a video into a cartoon with the pointillism technique.
The functionality of the software depends on the license type. Some features are only available for Home Deluxe and Business licenses. Special Deluxe/Business features:
- While filtering the image, the program makes snapshots of intermediate steps. Thanks to the indispensable and spectacular Timeline feature it's possible to create variations of paintings without adjusting the settings.
- The program gives at your disposal the special Post-Processing Tools which lets you add final touches to your masterpiece, and strengthen/reduce the pointillism effect on certain areas.
During the trial period you can try all options and choose the license you like.
AKVIS Points is available as a standalone program and as a plugin to a photo editor, for Windows and Mac. The plug-in is compatible with Adobe Photoshop, Corel PaintShop Pro, Painter, etc. The software is available in versions for Windows and Mac OS X. One license key lets you register the product on two computers, it does not matter what system you use. You can even use the program on both platforms with the same key.
Operating system: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 (32/64 bit); Mac OS X 10.6-10.10 (32/64 bit). Interface & Help languages: English, German, Russian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Japanese.

The free version is limited to 50 photos per gallery, which is honestly more than enough. These days, the possibility of someone scrolling through over 50 images on any website is highly unlikely.
The Pro version of Juicebox also gives you a wide range of additional features, including the ability to add audio and watermarks to your galleries, remove the Juicebox branding and add autoplay support. You can also access  additional theming options, host unlimited images in galleries, and more.
There are several ways you can create image galleries using Juicebox, whether it’s with the Adobe Air desktop app, requiring a little bit of extra effort on your part when it comes to editing the .xml file, using a Photoshop template, a Lightroom plugin, or easiest and most convenient of all, a WordPress plugin.

Movavi Photo Editor 2

Movavi Photo Editor provides a quick and easy method to enhance your photos. Whether you want to erase an element in the scenery that ruins its beauty or improve image quality and adjust colors, this application can do it.
The principle that Movavi Photo Editor relies on is simple: there is no need for a complex graphic editor to perform simple operations such as removing objects or adjusting graphic parameters.

Movavi Photo Editor can remove an unwanted object from an image, making it look like it was never there in the first place. Furthermore, it allows image manipulation and fine adjusting, improving picture quality. With Movavi Photo Editor, removing an object from an image is easy. Select areas of the same color with the 'Magic Wand', use the 'Lasso' tool to outline an item and the eraser to remove selections. Additionally, you can clone objects or replace entire picture areas, crop photos, flip and rotate images.
Movavi Photo Editor does much more than smart object removal: use MagicEnhance to automatically fix the brightness, contrast and white balance of your photos, crop, flip, and rotate images to ensure the best framing and composition before you save a picture. Resize photos if they're too big to share online or take up too much space on your HDD.
