Upgrade to NiK Filters - Thoughts?
Marianne posted a topic in Let's talk about picsI signed up for some upcoming DxO webinars on the upgrades to the Nik collection filters and was wondering if anyone had given the upgrades a look or if you're planning to check out the webinars? Here are links to the Nik Webinars I have the old filters upgraded from my ages-ago purchase after Google bought them, which I use via LR (can't get them to work with PS anymore). I had intended to purchase the DxO upgrades but they never seemed like much and they didn't have an upgrade option for those of us whoo actually paid for the filters, though now it's so long ago that it's the lack of something new that keeps me from upgrading. I'm wondering what they've added. It looks like they are focusing a lot on Vivenza (which I use on occasion) and Silver Effex, my go-to for black and white, which I find absolutely perfect as is, but I'm intrigued. I've played around with the B&W options in LR and even written articles about it, but the artistry of Silver Effex is leap years ahead of LR. I use Color Effex a lot and also enjoy playing with Analog Pro which is like diving into a mountain of candy - you never really know what you'll get but it's usually something fun. I wish they'd make it easier to save presets in Analog Pro, the Color Effex presets are great for processing a batch of images (albeit one at a time, with work on U-Points requiring you to do each separately). Anyway, thoughts welcome pre and post webinars.
Hi Does PS CS6 still crash when you use NIK plugins with High Sierra? I am aware that my question is not going to be of any interest to most people, but I am certain that amongst some of the regular people in the forum, NIK collection is a important part of their workflow. Therefore any recent experience in this matter will be valuable to me. It is inevitable that I will have to upgrade to High Sierra at some point so I want to be prepared. I don't use NIK Collection all the time but I use it in certain circumstances. Someone suggested me that I can run two operating systems (with a partition). It sounds fairly easy and a good idea. But how practical & easy is it to jump between two operating systems? For example, you work on an image in PS with High Sierra and reopen it in PS with Sierra in order to put it through NIK Collection, then bring it back to High Sierra? Is it fairly simple straight forward? Or is it very cumbersome process? Any advice or experience will be very much appreciated. Many thanks Sung
