This book covers Nik Silver Efex Pro 2

Silver Efex Pro 2 has long been a favorite package with photographers who want to convert color images to black and white. Sure you can do this in Photoshop or Elements but the results really don't match what can be achieved with this software. When used properly Silver Efex Pro can reveal dramatic and stunning images concealed within what were previously lackluster color photographs. The secret, as with most things in life is knowing how to do something properly.

Do you know how all the sliders and conversion tools work and how to chose the best adjustments for each particular image?

What order should you work through the adjustments so as to create the greatest impact? Does it matter?

What processing should you apply to images before taking them into Silver Efex Pro?

What is the difference between the Structure and Fine Structure Sliders and which could damage your image?

Most of all, why do some black and white images work whilst others fall flat?

If you want to answer these questions and more, this is the guide you have been looking for. It covers every aspect of the Silver Efex interface, explaining all the adjustment options. The effects of individual sliders are compared so that you are well placed to determine the best approach for converting any image.

The first part of the considers a number of black and white images to identify any rules to help in creating dramatic conversions. Next is a thorough coverage of the software and all its capabilities. Finally there are three examples which detail the workflow and application of the Silver Efex tools. This final section is also supported by image files which can be downloaded from my web site, allowing you to follow along.

You will find everything is presented clearly with sufficient detail to allow you to master this powerful package. I do not include filler material; I just want to convey the essential facts. Now if you are wondering about this length of this book I can tell you it is 111 pages in A4, contains 20,000 words and 99 illustrations. This is not a short pamphlet like so many other low priced guides.

If you are still not sure, why not download and take a look at the sample. It will even give you the links to my web sites.

Das Buch ist sein Geld mehr als wert. Der Autor erklärt nicht nur das Programm sondern gibt auch eine Menge praktischer Hinweise, was bei der SW Umwandlung wichtig ist. Wenn man sich die Beispielbilder runterlädt und die Bearbeitungsschritte nachvollzieht bleibt das Gelernte auch hängen. Es handelt sich bei den Beispielen allerdings immer um Landschaft oder Architektur.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Essential workflow for B&W in Lightroom 16. Dezember 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This presents an essential, logical, succinct workflow in developing B&W images.
Robin Whalley doesn't waste time with the waffling and weak jokes you find in other photography guides.
The writer obviously is a highly experienced photographer and I'd like to hear of more guides like this that cut straight to the action.
I'd suggest using an editor - check the spelling of 'border'. And let's see a few more high-art images from Robin - although it is very helpful to follow the same image through the workflows. Excellent value and highly suggested for all who work in B&W in Lightroom. If you thought you knew Silver Efex before, you're in for a pleasant surprise with this guide. There's scope for Robin to follow this terrific guide with a workflow series on styles of B&W development in IR, long-exposure, using Silver Efex to make medium-distance and foreground forms 'pop' in nature photography, misty fine-art landscape, textures and so on. - From Ross in Queanbeyan.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great five star book! 10. Juni 2013
Von Selah Muhammad - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book is the book that Nik Silver EfexPro should have produced. I am a little more than half way through and I've already got more than I paid for. I recommend this book to all users of this tool. I brought silver EfexPro 1 and have since upgraded to Pro2 a great software that will be even better as a result of Ms Whalleys effort. My thanks to her.
P.S. if someone will please write one on Sharpner I'd really be a happy camper.

I've completed the book and would further recommend the readers completion of the work through projects offered from ms Whalley's website as they aid in cementing the techniques expressed in the written material .

I have three of Mr. Whalley's kindle books and I have been happy with the content so far. They are best used for us beginners ( which is what they are designed for). What I am most impressed with is Robin's level of dedication to his customers. I had a problem opening the example files (entirely my own fault, I am a member of the older...okay much older, generation and not that conversant with all of the steps to open and access zip files) ((Yeah..I know,duh)) Just wait until you are 75 to start casting stones. I e-mailed Robin and received an answer within hours detailing the probable cause AND the offer to send the files in another format if necessary, Fortunately, I was able to use his advice and was able to open and use the files. How many times in this throwaway world have you had someone who cares that much about the customer after they have your money?
There are plenty of reviews of the software, I just wanted to make sure Robin gotta an attaboy for caring.

Robin Whaley has done an excellent job in explaining how to use Silver Effects in an exceptional step by step tutorial. I have a lot of his training books and so far I would recommend all of them.

If you could spend about $3 to significantly improve the look and impact of your black and white photos, whats not to like! This book is a very good handbook for the excellent Silver Efex2 siftware from Nik. I can't compare it to other books on the same subject, since I don't have any, but I do think it has helped me significantly improve the utility I get from Nik's software(however, I do intend to purchase 'Plug-in with Nik' by John Batdorff for a second author's perspective as I use all of Nik's products extensively and another $7-8 will not hurt if I learn something new. If and when I do, I will publish an edit with the comparative usefulness of the approaches of the two authors). Again, as with other books by the author, the approach to teaching by way of worked examples (you are encouraged to download the sample pictures from the author's website and carry out the modifications described in the book) is very effective and clearly conveys the exact effect of using certain sliders and options with utmost economy of words.

It is a relatively short book (though not as short as his book on Viveza2 which I also own since Silver Efex2 is a much more complex plug-in than Viveza2) and is filled with great black and white conversions by the author himself, which can be quite inspiring. The teaching approach is direct and practical without a lot of theory. The author briefly discusses the artistic considerations and principles involved without overly concentrating on them. I find this appropriate since it keeps the book focused on the software itself and there are many great books on the the larger artistic principles of post editing. I found the book quite useful but be sure to try out the different sliders and effects by yourself side by side with reading about them in the book to get full advantage of the insights.
