p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Topaz Impressions V2 doesn't support smart objects

Topaz Impressions V1 originally worked with smart objects by saving the settings in each SO enabling one to go back and forth between multiple layers to tweak an image until everything lined up. Although SO can be used with V2, the settings are not stored in the PSD file. The Topaz plugin itself saves only the last filter setting, so that when dealing with multiple SO layers with different brushes and effects, the earlier settings are lost. Going back to edit earlier objects becomes a trial.

I urge those users of Impressions to vote for proper operation of the plugin at:


This is an example of multiple SO and layers that required a lot of back and forth:


I have communicated with them in the past about this lack, but enough users need to demonstrate they need proper SO functionality as a requirement. Impressions will remain a toy as long as it remains hobbled.

For those of you who were unaware of this lack of functionality, be mindful that when you do begin using multiple SO that this will definitely inhibit your creativity. Or even if you stay with a single SO and want to edit it at a later time....
