Impressionist plugin: 64 bit version?

Does a 64-bit version of the Impressionist plugin exist?

If not is there some way to use this plugin under Windows 7?

Impressionist is a very old 8bf by Microsoft and it will more then likely never get updated (believe it originally shiped with Office 2000 Pro and was never re-distributed with later versions of Office). You could use a surrogate 32-bit program like Irfanview or run PS 32-bit to use this plugin; an inconvenience no doubt. Still, it does a few things that are quite unique and I still use it from time to time.

Hard to believe it's been 15 years.

The Impressionist plugin originally shipped as a part of a program called Image Composer 1.0 that was included with FrontPage 97 and subsequently with Image Composer 1.5 under FrontPage 98 and FrontPage 2000. Its functionality was integrated into MS PhotoDraw 2000.

As Lyle stated it is highly unlikely this plugin will ever be updated and that 32-bit surrogate editors can potentially be a host.

I've read it works, but have yet to try it, under 32-bit Photoshop (or other 32-bit version of applications like Corel Painter, Paintshop Pro, etc.) running under a 64-bit Windows OS, e.g., XP/64, Vista/64 or Win 7/64.

Had no idea it's been around even earlier then 2000 Danny. lol

Amazing the folk that created this cool plugin and still how powerful it is for certain types of renders. Anyway, I use Win7 64-bit and Impressionist did work with CS2 (only had 32-bit version of PS then). Since I upgraded to CS5 a year ago, I've not tried it in CS5 32-bit but I bet it will still work there; it won't work in CS5 64-bit though from what I've read (but again I've not tried; only use PS for RAW processing. I use Impressionist inside GIMP, which, as you know, is my main crutch).

As a side note, I personally know that Impressionist will work in Irfanview and Virtual Studio.

The Impressionist Plug In will work on all Versions of Adobe Photoshop, that is Photoshop 7 to CS5 32 bit versions. I have not tested it on CS6 32 bit, as I did not upgrade to CS6, as I believe there are some issues with CS6 so far.

Re: Impressionist plugin: 64 bit version?

It works fine in CS6 32-bit
I've noticed the problems with ALCE2, xtraSens Retina 2, some panels, and Pixel Bender for sure cause it's no more supported.
But it's another story

btw, can someone supply TIF files WATR1A.TIF for Alcar vc Watercolor styles
Many thanks in advance

Re: Impressionist plugin: 64 bit version?

Forgot about this thread. Just wanted to say that Impressionist works in GIMP 2.8 64-bit as well. Photoshop should have made their old plugins work in the 64-bit version of PS as well and should have mud in their eye since Impressionist at least still works in 64-bit GIMP as well all near all 32-bit GIMp plugins since they decided to add a backwards compatibility feature for 32-bit GIMP plugins. lol

Yea; I tout GIMP's abilities too much. lol

I can confirm Impressionist works under CS6 32 bit under Windows 7 (64).
