    Recommend a Painting Effects software thats User friendly

    I mainly use LR CC and would like to try my luck in PP with min to mild paint effects. Something that actually looks like a painting. I am NO artist so I would need a Program that would offer me some Presets that are really good. Mainly for Portraits
    Thanks

    Since you want "min to mild paint effects" I can recommend Topaz Impression because you can adjust the opacity just like a layer in PS for the amount of effect you want. Topaz Impression has many different presets and many types of adjustments can be made inside the presets for more control. If you are looking for a painterly type plugin that works with Lightroom and PS, Topaz Impression is an option. As with all good art, you get what you put into it. Best of luck!



    PS: There are lots of free tutorials on YouTube and the Topaz website.
