Topaz Impression helps make your photos more expressive by authentically turning them into art, the way a real painter would. Rigidly realistic photos sometimes leave less room for emotion, personal feeling, and story. Instead of just showing reality, take your viewers on a story by using Impression to capture emotion and feeling rather than details. This can make your work both more powerful and more personal.
Great painters painstakingly make one brushstroke at a time until, months later, they emerge with their masterpiece. A completed work can have thousands of brushstrokes. There’s simply no way that someone could achieve such quality and detail by just, say, applying a simple art filter… but that’s exactly what most “photo to art” products do! While some of these cookie-cutter presets may look nice, they won’t express your personal creativity in the way that real art does.
That’s why we designed Topaz Impression to use the same method that great painters use: paint brushstrokes one at a time. (It just does this very fast!) Impression can paint over 10,000 brushstrokes in less than a second, all while completely following your artistic direction. This helps you make truly personal art that you can call your own.
