Buzz Pro Simplifier

They have gone out of business and many people are left with confusion on how they will be able to get they’re hands on it again. Hopefully Corel will  add it as a plug-in to they’re program someday.

But in the meantime here are a few suggestions.

If you have PS you can immulate it by going into Filter, Noise, and using the Median at about 3-4 and then sharpened. I think it was suggested to make a sketch layer too and then you can add it using one of the blend modes or masking back in the median layer.


Jim Clatfelter has made this free action that simulates the Buzz Simplifier. It looks really good. Thank you Jim!

 Good Luck!

    I have been trying to understand how painting and photoshop work together. If you painted a picture how can photoshop improve a painting that you’ve painted on canvas.

    Hi Fourborne,
    I paint it in PS or Painter and then take it to PS for final tweaking with the colors, texture, etc. This is all done prior to having it printed on Canvas, or Watercolor paper.

    Hey Carrie great site, I am trying to learn as much as I can about PainterX. Iwant to take my digital art to the next level, I think using your tutorials will help me along.
    I was wondering about Buzz pro, As the company is out of business, if it would be improper to make the BuzzPro 3 filter for PS3/PsS2 available to who asks?
    I ahve used their products for years along with Artmaster Pro also by FO2Pix. Great programs. I was a little disapointed to see the company go out of business.
    Any way I would like to see more tutorials on your site I love the ones you have now.
