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:
