A customer wrote me and asked if I would mind going over how to set up my Oil Glaze Preset in Topaz Impression 2...so here is a video with instructions, along with a PDF file you can download below. I suggest printing out the PDF file so you can look at it while setting up your preset. Be sure to set "coverage" to 1.00 in the preset - that line was cut off in my screenshots and doesn't show in the PDF file.
**Note: I am using Topaz Impression 1 and 2, which I had purchased before Topaz Labs released the new Topaz Studio. Apparently, the only software they offer now is "Impression in Studio". I do not use Topaz Studio at this point, so I have no idea how to set up the preset in that version of the software. I'm sure it's very similar, however the settings panel may look different than they do in my video and PDF.
