I struggled for years to get what I wanted to no avail.
It's always B&W for me.
On another forum, a guy named Wayne turned me on to Nik a few years ago.
Needless to say, the journey was worth the end result.
Silver Effex is like my Leica darkroom....
I know you understand.
I am currently performing my B&W conversions using the B&W adjustment layer in Photoshop CS4. What is it about Silver Effex that makes it a superior tool? How well does it integrate into a Photoshop workflow? How is the user interface?
Silver Effex plugs in to PS and LR.
It is very intuitive. You can do just about anything you could do in a darkroom only easier.
There are presets that you can us as is or modify and save as a new preset.
There is great control. You can download a trial version.
If you try it you'll buy it.
