Topaz Impression Mixed Media

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Published 8 years ago

Topaz Impression can be a very powerful painting tool in Photoshop. Of course, the single click presets developed by Topaz Labs are great, but there is so much more to it than that!

As many of you know I used to be a painter. One thing painters do is mix different mediums together in one piece, like acrylic paint and water color, or pastels and charcoal. You can do the exact same thing in Topaz Impression and obtain beautiful results!

Amazing you earned yourself a subscriber! I love how far technology has come.. Literally to do something like this by hand could take hours or even days.. Now we are able to make amazing art in a matter of minutes..

It has been interesting following the saga of Topaz Impressions in the forum. Many see no need, to expensive etc. but your video showed a viable use for the product when doing a mixed media. Topaz needed a video like this to awaken the artist from within rather than a plain tutorial. Now I am beginning to see more use of Impressions with positive results. Very well done.

I use Paint Shop Pro. Your Topaz videos have helped me so much. You make it easy to use. You explain it so anyone can use Topaz and not be afraid or overwhelmed by what the programs can do. Thank you so much. You're at the top of the list when I have a question about Topaz. Keep up the great work.

Wow, that has made Impressions even more exciting

Mixing Impressions with the FilterGallery to control Impression very interesting.  I used to love Poster Edges.  The original has a great sky.  You can feel the wind direction.

Is Topaz a stand-alone software? Or do we need to have PS or Elements?
