(for accessing Glow in Photoshop, please see here)

To access Impression in the Filter menu, you will first need to run Impression as a standalone editor (Mac only). After that, restart Photoshop and Impression should then appear in your Filter menu. Should that fail to work, please do the following to resolve the issue: 

Mac:

1. Go to Applications folder and right click on the Impression icon. 

2. Click on Show Package Contents → Contents → Resources

3. Then copy the Topaz_Impression.plugin to your PSCC 2015 (or Photoshop, PSE) plugins folder (paste this file under the Topaz folder if there is one there).  

  • /Applications/Adobe Photoshop CC 2015/Plug-ins/

4. Restart PS CC (or Photoshop CS, PS Elements) and Impression should show up in the Filter menu. 

 

Windows: 

1. Go to installed location of Topaz Impression, which is usually at C:\Program Files\Topaz Labs\Topaz Impression.

2. There are two folders, PS_Plugins and PS_Plugins_x64, containing the 32-bit and 64-bit plugin files (the .8bf file) respectively.

3.  For 64-bit Photoshop host programs, make a shortcut to folder PS_Plugins_x64 and copy the shortcut file into the 64-bit Photoshop host's Plug-Ins folder.

  • C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2015\Plug-ins\

4. For 32-bit Photoshop host programs, copy tlimpressionps.8bf file inside folder PS_Plugins and paste it in the 32-bit Photoshop's Plug-ins folder.

  • C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2015\Plug-ins\

5. Restart PS CC (or Photoshop CS, PS Elements) and Impression should show up in the Filter menu.
