New Name: Impression in Studio
Impression has been renamed to Impression in Studio and has officially moved into Topaz Studio! This change has been made to remove the unnecessary version numbers we provide with the plugin version (e.g. Impression 1.1.0 and Impression 2.0.5). Moving Impression into Topaz Studio, will enable us to focus on the overall mission of improving the entire Topaz Labs experience from start to finish. With this new name, we begin the journey to a more integrated, complete, and user-focused product.
Now inside Topaz Studio
Going forward, you will access Impression from the Topaz Studio application. Impression can now be accessed without a paid host editor (such as Photoshop and Lightroom), AND you can access Impression directly from the Workflow Panel in Topaz Studio.
Impression Adjustment in Studio
We have added Impression to several different areas inside Topaz Studio to make it more accessible to you. You can access Impression through the workflow panel on the left under "Specialty", adustment drop down menu, and also, from the blue adjustment shortcut button on the workspace to the right.
Painting Progress Timeline
One of the new controls introduced in Impression in Studio is the Painting Progress Timeline found under the Stroke section of the Impression adjustment. The Painting Progress Timeline allows you to move forward and backwards through the developement of the Impression effect added to your image!
We have made some quality improvements to the resolution and brush strokes, for this Impression update!
With the latest Impression update we harnessed the power through Topaz Studio to increase the resolution of any image larger than 2k.
Increased Detail in Brush Strokes
We were also able to include increased detail in every brush stroke applied to your image. This will allow for more authentic application of the Impression adjustment and bring a more unique artistic look to your image.
What's the Same?
Keeping with Topaz Labs tradition, you can still launch Impression directly as a Photoshop plug-in. However, we've moved the entry into Topaz Studio, so you know you're launching Impression in Studio.
Filter → Topaz Labs → Topaz Impression...
Filter → Topaz Studio → Impression...
