Topaz Labs just released Topaz Impression 2, an updated version of their painting software, adding more presets, integrated masking, and many other features, listed below. The update is free to anyone who already owns Impression, and for those who don’t own it, Impression 2 will be on sale ($40 off) until July 7, 2016. You can share the coupon code “2IMPRESS” with your friends so they can also take advantage of the discounted price of $59.99 (regularly $99.99).
