If you get excited by the thought of applying realistic painterly effects such as impasto, oil, watercolor, or pastel to your photos, or if you dream of mimicking the brushstrokes of legendary artists like Monet, Van Gogh, O’Keeffe, Degas, and Cezanne, Topaz Labs’ Impression plug-in will have you dancing in the streets. I absolutely LOVE it! The hardest part is choosing which preset to use because there are so many breathtaking options. In today’s Photoshop Workbench tutorial, we’ll take a close look at Impression. I’ll share all of the amazing not-so-obvious features and even talk about my wish list…just in case Topaz is listening.
