a camera’s sensor should be cleaned
at least once a year?

At The Artistic Image we have installed TOPAZ software  for editing customer images.  It is amazing what this software is able to do.  We invite you to also explore the TOPAZ products as we believe you will find this software to be helpful.

For the month of May TOPAZ software is featuring its “edge  enhancement software package” called TOPAZ CLEAN. TOPAZ CLEAN

  • Smoothes the surfaces of photos removing skin blemishes, dust and noise.
  • The smooth edges within each image are uniquely processed with a quality that looks “vectorized.”  Within portraits, the smooth “vectorized” edges both define and enhance the line quality of details such as eye lashes and hair.
  • Additionally, TOPAZ CLEAN recovers and refines the important natural textures within each portrait to prevent your subjects from loosing their natural elegance.
  • For the month of May TOPAZ CLEAN is 50% off its originally price of $29.99 and is now $14.99.    Please click here to view a sample of images that have been enhanced with this professional post production software.

Presenting: The Artistic Image’s Library of Professional Art Papers

Transport your viewers into the depths of a mysterious forest…

Enhance the peaceful mood with the essence of soft elegance….

Further convey the warmth within moments of magic…

Reach out & grab your viewer with vibrant colorful energy….

The story and feeling contained within a photograph can be powerful, but printing on a paper that does not compliment your photograph only dilutes that story and its mood.

With this in mind, The Artistic Image would like to invite you to come in and explore our extensive library of high quality art papers. It is our pleasure to help you find a paper that enhances the unique qualities contain within each of your photographs.

We welcome you to come in and experience our library first hand and visit our catalog online at:

The Artistic Image Library of Professional Art Papers 

We would also like to make a special introduction for a couple of papers that have recently been added to our library:


  • Polar Pearl Metallic Plus Paper: A photograph printed upon Polar Pearl Metallic will take on a brilliant, almost luminescent quality. This paper features a glossy finish, which highlights a sense of elegant iridescence within your prints. This iridescent quality enables the eye to see the subtle variations of color that makes each image unique and will cause your viewers to celebrate color in a whole new way.
  • Hahnemühle Bamboo (Sheets Only): This natural white paper with a warm tone combines spiritual photography with environmental considerations.  This paper’s subtle warm tone adds a delicate warm glow to each image.  Its tight fibers enables each image to retain a high level of detail, conveying even the smallest of details with incredible sharpness. The fibers of this paper transform black ink into rich multidimensional shadows enabling every subtle tone within an image to be present.  For these reasons images printed on Bamboo contain a realistic sense of depth that dramatically brings subjects to life.
