Our Inspiration

The 19th century brush-wielding Impressionist artists were crazy about flowers and gardens, and it was good. With flowing brush strokes and thickly painted texture, Van Gogh made his sunflowers immortal; with harmonious movement of color, contrast, and form, Monet made his lily pond a celebrity. It took their genius, lifetimes of practice, and navigating the riot of their senses, but these extraordinary artists took what they saw and felt in the petals and leaves and transferred their impressions onto canvasses full of beauty, mood, and meaning.

Lucky you, 21st century software wielding seer and lovers of beauty, Impresso gives you the same enduring attention to detail, light, color and texture by transforming your photos into multi-textured, stroke-filled Impressionist masterpieces. Keen eyes will love how Impresso maintains the balance of your piece! The results are captivating paintings brimming with passion, life, and beauty.

Impressive Impresso!
JixiPix has outdone itself with this fabulous painting app! Easy to use with wonderful presets to get you started. The detail tool is a great addition to this program and the brushwork is very realistic. I have nearly all the Jixi software and this has quickly become my favorite of their painting emulations. Well done!
