  • Impressionist plugin - how can I run it on a Mac?

    I've just switched to an Apple Mac. Does it mean that I cannot any longer use
    swampy's presets for watercolor and the Impressionist plugin?
    Please say no, and tell me where to find these tools for an AppleMac
    Thanks

    Impressionist is a Windows PS filter so you're out of luck with MAC. Maybe can do a dual boot and use Impressionist with a surrogate like Irfanview (and not GIMP if you know the hack).

      I didn't develop Impressionist, but you should be able to use my art brushes. :-)

        lol; should have said now GIMP not "not GIMP". Also, forgot to link the thread describing how to get it to work in GIMP.


        http://registry.gimp.org/node/22324#comment-6562 (yes; no fear when you edit the files is required. lol). Trust me; this works. I can't recall, but I think you will get an error in GIMP when you first run it after doing this. Just close and re-open and all is well.

          Arturo, I assume you have a newer Intel Mac. Definitely invest in Parallels so you can run Windows and enjoy any Windows-only software, of which there is much.

          Rebooting into Boot Camp to run Windows is free but an inconvenience. Parallels lets you drag work from Windows to Mac and vice-versa. Your Parallels Windows environment becomes just a file in a folder, so it is easily backed up and restored as needed.

            I tried both Boot Camp and Parallels and wound up deleting them as I became riddled with viruses. Also I have always been a Mac user and didn't know diddly about the operation of or file system of a PC.

            I have been able to use certain things like brushes etc, anything that has the same icon characteristic as a mac. Actions, etc. I hope that this helps. I am using a 2009 iMac and OS 10.6.2

              Thanks a lot to all of you for your valuable advice and prompt answer.
              I'm glad I'll be able to use Swampy's art brushes and I will consider Parallel.
              Thank you again

                Hi community,

                you probably find useful this pluging. It works perfect when you want to preview Photoshop Brushes just in the Quick Look of the Mac: http://www.plugincool.com/quicklook/...cklook-plugin/

                Enjoy!

                Impressionist plugin: Running it on a Macintosh
                by DannyRaphael
                The Microsoft Impressionist plugin is only available in a PC version, but there may be hope for adventurous Mac users. Here's a possible workaround suggested by Mac user, MG:

                In theory one could install Virtual PC on the Mac, then a Windows version of Photoshop Elements, Jasc PaintShop...
