pictor said:This program is rather popular and I do not doubt its quality. But after watching some videos on their homepage, I do not see much, what I cannot do in Lightroom, too. Even the film simulations can be done in Lightroom easily, since there are a lot of free Lightroom presets which do just that. I think, that I have collected a lot of free film presets for Lightroom, maybe even more than Silver Efex offers. I am really interested in that program, since so many people seem to be really fond of SilverEfex, but I would not see any reason for buying this product, if it does not offer much more than Lightroom does. Maybe someone can help me.
although a layer mask could easily have achieved the same result.
Anyone else noticing this? I'm finding its more than a tad slower - the sliders act like they're in slow-mo and I've had the program hang my whole computer a couple of times. I have a slightly more than one year old iMac with 8 gigs of RAM, so if anything should be able to run it, this should.Seems a tad slower.
Once you get familiar with it, it'll take about 2-3 minutes. At least that's what I found with the old version. If the new one can keep up. And its got a lot more detailed controls that could add to the time spent...
