Very nice. So what do you think of silver efex? Did you play around with control points?

I have no knowledge of the software yet. I do use Lightroom. It seems that the free software is not the full version. No sure!

Should be the full version. They are just plug-ins for Lightroom and photoshop, so not standalone programs.

The Nik site should have tutorials for them as well. Check out how to use control points. They rock!

BTW they are working for me perfectly as standalone OS X 10.11 apps, as I don't even have any of the compatible host software.

Yes sir, the free version is most definitely full version. I compared my previous version with the free version the other night. They are the same.:mrgreen:

Can be used as standalone in Windows as well(with a little difficulty). Much easier to use as a plug-in with any software(that I have) that has a "Send to external editor" command in the file menu. I have Irfanview, XnView, and FastStone working great with it.

I'm liking it so far. It makes it a bit easier to come up with a unique look for each shot, I think I can achieve more or less the same thing using just LR, but there seems to be less fidling with the NIK software, which is always welcome in my opinion :)

XF 18mm, first shot using the Analog Pro plugin, second using only Lightroom

I'm already loving Silver Efex though :) This one was with the Rokinon 12mm
