Smile Favourite photo-based art Plug ins

Hi there
I'm new to this photo-based art and have been reading some of the reviews on all the different types of plug ins for oil painting, watercolour, sketch effects etc.

Thought it might be a good idea for us to recommend the top 3 plug ins of our choice for realistic painterly effects from photos.

So far I've only tried.

1. Alien skin snap art
2. Akvis sketch
3. Akvis artwork

and that is my preferred order

Topaz Simplify and Topaz Adjust are two of my favorites.

Cool of Steve for passing by, because he hosts one of the most powerful filters there is imo. Check out his site for Impressionist. A must have imo.

Re: Favourite photo-based art Plug ins

Using a Mac my preferred are:
Topaz Labs Simplify
Alien Skin Snap Art
OnOne Photo Tools

and if pushed my 4th would be:
Tiffen Dfx V2

Now can anyone tell me where I might find an impressionist plugin for the Mac as good as Trimoons for the PC, hmmmm?

I'm sorry to say that there there isn't a Impressionist plug-in for Mac.
