It has been raining so I have been experimenting. Both include conversion to BW with Nik Silver Efex. The second image has a mask to transition from Color at the top to BW at the bottom.All comments welcome - Brian
Yes and no. The ability to use Nik's U=Point control and brush technology makes it very much quicker and easier to do it with the plug-in.Interesting Brian, but, from what little I've seen from this software, the same kinds of effects can easily be obtained with the standard, more complete editing packages.
