In my opinion the NIK suite of plug-ins represent the greatest additions to Photoshop, Lightroom and Aperture that are available at this time. Their algorithms are so well thought out that it makes a lot of corrections effortlessly and perfectly. They also extend the creative possibilities into the realm of infinity –no small feat for a photoshop plug-in. From absolutely remarkable, 16 bit, HDR to truly stunning digital noise abatement, these tools are essential to the best digital processing workflow.
I will present the introduction and deep dive into all the suite products:
- Dfine® 2.0 – Best-in-class noise reduction
- VIVEZA® 2 – The most powerful tool available to selectively control light and color in photographs.
- HDR EFEX PRO™ – The new professional standard for powerful realistic and artistic HDR imaging.
- SILVER EFEX PRO™ 2 – The world’s leading black and white imaging software.
- Color Efex Pro™ 3.0 – 52 photographic filters with over 250 effects for professional quality images.
- Sharpener Pro™ 3.0 – The most advanced, powerful, and complete sharpening solution for photographers.
Please bring your laptops (Mac or PC) and some images you’d like to work on. This class is for all who wish to learn the products but some knowledge of Photoshop is desirable.
