Product Description

Product Description

This book covers Nik Efex Pro 4

If you are a Nik filter user and have tried out Color Efex you may find the sheer choice of filters at your disposal quite daunting. The software provides 55 filters, many of which are incredibly flexible. Unfortunately, many people chose not to use Color Efex as they are put off when confronted with such choice. If this is you, allow me to help you make Nik Color Efex a cornerstone of your image editing and unleash the true potential of this package.

This book assumes no prior knowledge of Nik Color Efex and will explain all elements of the user interface in detail.

The 55 filters and their controls are fully explained and demonstrated, so that you understand how to select the filters that are right for your images. Much of the information presented here has not to my knowledge been published elsewhere.

The book also presents two full examples in detail, demonstrating the process of evaluating and working with an image in order to achieve subtle but incredibly effective transformation. You will be able to follow along with these examples by downloading the free supporting image files from the www.lenscraft.co.uk website.

This is a significant book for any Nik Color Efex user, consisting 230 pages and almost 300 illustrations. Despite its size, the book gives users at all levels access to understandable information without needing to wade through lots of worthless filler content.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide to Software Package 20 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is well presented and an excellent source of useful information to anyone using the software package. All the filters are well explained with both illustrations and the photos for the illustrations can be downloaded. NIK Color Efex Pro is one of the most useful and easily use packages available and can transform any color image. Of course, like any software, the image has to be well taken and composed to begin with. It won't produce miracles. Overall, the book is a good reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Plug-in eBook 12 May 2014
By Willrow
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There's not a lot of user information available about Nik Plug-ins apart from Nik's own and when the author decided to start producing ebooks on them I decided to give them a try and originally bought the one on Viveza: The Secret to Creating Breathtaking Photography and was well pleased with my Amazon purchase.

Nik Color Efex Pro: How to transform your photography is a bargain buy, it was on introductory offer with 40% off, this mean't it cost under £2, now that's a real bargain and I snapped it up. This new ebook is written in a non technical user friendly fashion and will help anyone to get the best out of the software, I'm reasonably proficient with the Nik products, but I still dip into Robin Whalley's ebook to get the odd bit of help or inspiration.

I can only endorse this well written ebook, and if you have Nik software then this one is for you, go buy it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars sensational 21 May 2014
By JW
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been using the Nik collection for a while, helped by the video tutorials, but I avoided Colour Efex Pro, apart from the nd grad, because I never quite came to terms with it. Then I bought this book, and it really has transformed my images. Robin selects the really useful ones and explains them so well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable 24 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Any user of Nik Color Efex Pro 4 will find this e-book invaluable. The author explains all the presets and there individual settings/sliders uses in a clear and informative text along with illustrations/screen shots.
The use of control points to edit specific parts of an image is also fully explained.
Readers can also follow along with edits of images which can be uploaded from the authors website (free registration)
Would recommend to anyone wishing to know more about this excellent software.
