Topaz Impression - from Topaz Labs - is a new addition to the set of plug-ins I use and recommend to my workshops students.
Totally originally impressionist-like images are possible when you combine a few clicks (on a preset) of a mouse with dozens of slider adjustments.
Great fun. Cool creativity.
