An Advanced Look at Topaz Impression

I have been experimenting with Topaz Impression non-stop since it came out last week.  I know many have had video card issues with it and I understand those frustrations.  I can assure you the folks at Topaz Labs are doing everything int heir power to help where they can, I was talking with Darcy about that prior to the Webinar on Tuesday.

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!  Look at the before and after below.

The first image is a single preset.  The second is 3 presets or styles all mixed into one!  If you want to see how this image was created in Topaz Impression watch the video tutorial below!

Blake Rudis

f.64 Academy and f.64 Elite are the brainchildren of Blake Rudis. While he is a landscape photographer he is most passionate about post-processing images in Photoshop and mentoring others.


For Blake, it is less about the art and more about the process. He dives deep into difficult topics and makes them easy to understand through his outside the box thinking.
