I just purchased Silver Efect Pro 2 made by Nik Software. It's really as good as they claim.


Hi Pentaxian friends.

About a week ago, Nik Software reduced the price of Silver Efex Pro 2 from $199.00 to $98.00 for a limited time. I've been wanting that software for a while but couldn't bring myself to spend 200 bucks. At $98.00, my impulse was too great to pass that offer. I bought it and downloaded it immediately.

It may be a little hard to appreciate the images from my blog, but as I look at them, full size, on my 27" monitor, I'm really impressed. I'm not a  fan of  "real" Black and White, but Silver Efex Pro 2 lets you add hints of color. In all the example above, I chose light sepia.

There are so many tools to manipulate the images, that it will take a while to perfect the results. It has a range of borders that you can apply and you can see some of them applied herein.

There is just something about monochrome pictures that people like. I will just have to enlarge and frame a few images. If I'm lucky, my wife will let me put one in the living room, and if will be the garage or my bathroom!

Thank you for reading,
