Tutorial 23 - Nik Color Efex Pro 4
In this multi-part tutorial will cover a variety of filters, old and new show and ways to use them creatively to take an image from the original camera RAW to a finished version ready to print.
We look at Color Efex Pro 4's integration with Lightroom and examine the user interface before using the Skin Softener filter.
We take a look at the most exciting feature of the new version - stacking filters. We also look at three of the new filters, Film Efex Faded, Film Efex Nostalgic and FIlm Efex Vintage.
We make our model's skin glow by using the Contast Color Range filter.
We look at a new filter type, Levels and Curves and learn how we can combine them with Nik Software's U-Point control points to make selective edits to our image.
We look at the Pro Contrast filter. This isn't a new filter but it does give fantastic control over the contrast and areas of brightness in your image.
We look at the vignette filter then complete our round-trip back to Lightroom where we do a little finishing off and then I give you my verdict on the new version of Color Efex Pro.
