Create authentic digital paintings, sketches, and watercolors using intelligent drawing technology.
The old masters like Monet, Van Gogh, and Cezanne concerned themselves with feeling and emotion in their art. Even though they were absolutely capable of photorealistically reproducing their subject, they wanted to show the subject like they felt it, not as it objectively appeared. And that’s why it’s so easy to tell the difference between a Monet, Van Gogh, and a Cezanne – because they made their paintings a reflection of themselves.
A completed work can have thousands of brushstrokes. Impression helps make your photos more expressive by authentically turning them into art, the way a real painter would: painting brushstrokes one at a time. Impression can paint over 10,000 brushstrokes in less than a second, all while completely following your artistic direction. Rigidly realistic photos sometimes leave less room for emotion, personal feeling, and story. Instead of just showing reality, take your viewers on a journey by using Impression to capture emotion and feeling rather than details, making your work both more powerful and more personal.
Two painters with the same tools will create very different paintings… and two photographers with Impression will create very different art. Art is a unique expression of individual creativity, not a simple visual style. And although Impression does have pre-built effects to inspire you, it has the power to create your own personal masterpiece.
