Tell your photo’s story through art! Impression turns photos into paintings, sketches, watercolors, and more… the way a real artist would do it.
“My local framer thought I’d taken up painting! He was amazed at the effect.” -kathyhancock
“This is the most realistic – yet easy to use – painting program I’ve used. The results look fantastic and real!” -wright.way
“If you choose ‘colored pencil’, it looks as if an artist has taken your image and copied it using colored pencils. It’s that realistic.” -middletobduff
Great painters put thousands of brushstrokes into their masterpieces, and there’s no way that you could achieve such quality by just applying a single 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 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.
