Good morning everyone!

When I try to use HDR EFEX Pro 2 and save (as a stand alone program - I'm not using PS or LR) it looks like it's saving but the image is unchanged from when I opened it up in HDR.

Is the file being saved somewhere else?

Tried a little something different with the processing . exported from Lr4 to Cs5 and used Silver Efex Pro for max tonality and reduced the layer opacity just enough for the colour to return then opened color Efex for a little glamour glow then Define for a little noise reduction

How do I call Nik Software I understand you have to fill in a form no telephone number and you have to be logged in your google account.
I can't seem to find how to do this, I have sent them several message to contact me but nothing.  

Regards,

Sally

According to that, the 'call us now' option will be there between 8:30AM and 5PM PST (so, starting in about 90 minutes from now).

At the most recent Pint and Pixel, hosted by ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) - Oregon, I was asked how I lit this photo. In the interest of time, I gave the short answer, just quickly describing the light setup, which isn't that complicated.

Today on my blog however, I decided to share the long answer. How ambient light is a big part of it and the post processing involved.
Joel Grimes Photography was a huge inspiration for this technique and I'm sure those of you who follow his methods will recognize the similarities. However, I have departed now from doing it precisely the Joel Grimes way.

Hope you enjoy.

Thank you to the models Mathew Northway and Rod Brown. and my mother Sheryl Brown for assisting on all of these shots.

With the help of Nik Viveza control points (brightness pulled down) I was able to darken my black backdrop to a deep black; protected the orchid flowers and stem with other control points, all sliders set to zero.Finalized with global +10 structure.

In Part One of this two-part Photoshop Workbench compositing series, we added a skateboarder and his shadow to an urban overpass scene.  In Part Two, we'll explore the process of creating dramatic light, spark, and smoke effects.  We'll also use a pair of plug-ins, Nik Color Efex Pro and Knoll Light Factory for Photoshop, to add finishing cinematic touches to the scene.

Watch a tutorial preview:

Anyone know how to install NIK so it works in GIMP as a plugin? This video shows it working but not how or where to install.

Hi All,
I have nik plugins installed in Lightroom from a couple of years ago but now have Photoshop CC with LR CC combination.
Do I need to install the nik plugins into Photoshop or because I have in LR CC no need to install?
The Nik LR version was for LR only at time of purchase...

Thankyou
Vedran

Default settings on filter launch ?
Hey there ! Too bad you can't search a community as someone may have already answered this ...
My question : is there a way to stop Nik FX (Analog most notably) from loading a bunch of default settings on load ? This really slows everything down for no good reason.... :-(
Thanks !

I edited this classic car photo with Color Efex Pro, luminosity masks, and a texture.  I posted a complete behind the scenes tutorial video on how I edited it, as well as the original RAW file on my website for anyone who'd like to try editing it themselves...
Before I went to Cuba, I always wondered if there are old classic American cars all over the roads in Havana, or if photographers warp how we see Cuba by cherry picking the cool cars amidst a bunch of new ones?  The old cars are definitely legit.  It feels like half the cars on the road are…

Moonlight At The Loon Creek Camp
Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness Area, Idaho

A full moon illuminates the Loon Creek camping area and rafts tied up along the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho.

Photography Tip:  Shooting in the dark is not easy. Aside from all of the usual challenges in landscape photography, night and low-light images often suffer from distracting levels of digital camera sensor noise. I released a new video tutorial this week on the basics of noise reduction using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Nik Dfine which is part of the Google Nik Software Collection.

Unlike Adobe Photoshop Lightroom or Photoshop CC, Nik Dfine is a specialty product.  Dfine only does one thing and it does it well. Nik Dfine's sole purpose is noise reduction.  Unlike Lightroom or Photoshop, Dfine actually studies your images and automatically adjusts its settings so that more details are retained.

Www.msjphotography.com subscribers can watch the complete tutorial in full 1080p HD.  I have made the first ten-minutes free for everyone else too at http://www.msjphotography.com/index.php/2015/02/photoshop-lightroom-tutorial-47-noise-reduction-with-nik-dfine-basics/

This image, although HDR, is a lot more found than created. As a matter of fact it would have been impossible to recreate were it not for HDR. The extreme tonal contrast and the saturated colors of the leaves and stones were created by an amber park lamp at twilight. I had just watched a video about painting with flashlights in the dark and--low and behold--here the painting was done for me. P.S. Notice the birdhouse in the upper right.
