A Brief Guide To Silver Efex Pro 2 – Photoshop and Lightroom Plugin – DxO

A Brief Guide To Silver Efex Pro 2

Before I bought Silver Efex Pro 2 my main questions were ‘What can this plug-in do that I can’t do already in Photoshop or Lightroom?’ and ‘Is it worth the money?’ I will answer these for you in this article.

What is Silver Efex Pro 2?

Silver Efex Pro 2 is a plugin that converts color photos to black and white. It extends the capabilities of Lightroom and Photoshop by giving you tools to emphasize texture, emulate film, apply toning effects and add borders.

It comes as part of a suite of seven plugins that work with Photoshop Elements, Photoshop CC and Lightroom. It’s both Mac and Windows compatible.

Blake’s 3 Favorite Features of the Zone System Express 5 – f64 Academy

It’s not “just another Photoshop Panel”, it’s a workflow solution, a mindset shift!

Over the last three years, Blake has been refining his editing process using the Zone Systems.  What started out as an idea evolved into an actionable sequence of layers designed to get you in and out of Photoshop with the best results in the least amount of time.  While time savings was the intention, the resulting Digital Zone System created masterpieces with a fraction of the effort.   It quickly became apparent that the System was a photo workflow workhorse.  The only real problem was that the system was based on actions in Photoshop.  While actions are powerful, they can be convoluted, confusing to beginners, and daunting to open and close everytime you want to use them.  There was a need for something better, something more efficient, more accurate, and more deliberate.

What’s New in Adobe Camera Raw 10.3.0.933 – f64 Academy

Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom went out for a mani/pedi

Adobe Camera Raw updates usually entail camera raw profiles and minor tweaks.  This week, however, ACR and it’s sister Lightroom went out for a manicure and pedicure and had one too many mimosas.  They came back all pretty with a whole bunch of great new ideas.  Here is the skinny:

  1. Dehaze has been moved to the basic settings
  2. Presets are Active and show on the image when you hover over them
  3. Presets can now be put in folders and organized (thank goodness)
  4. Profiles have been moved out of calibration and work as phenomenal starting points for images

The Color Dodge & Color Burn Blend Modes – f64 Academy

Dodging and Burning with Blend Modes and Colors

If you have spent any amount of time with me you know that I am always trying to come up with new ways of using Blend Modes.  I have recently started experimenting with the Color Dodge and Color Burn Blend Modes.   At first I thought they were trash at best!  That was before I figured out how to use them effectively.

Snapshots in Adobe Camera Raw – f64 Academy

Snapshots – A great way to test different looks

Adobe Camera Raw is a powerful editing tool with many features we often overlook.  With its ability to transform a RAW image it is easy to gloss over the techy things that we can do with our pictures.  One of those lesser known functions of ACR is Snapshots.

Snapshots allow you to save your work as you edit your image.  After saving a snapshot, you can bounce back and forth between saved looks.  The snapshots are saved right in the XMP sidecar file of the RAW image and will be there anytime you open your photo.

8 Lessons Alfred Stieglitz Can Teach You

If you went to art or photography school, you definitely know about Alfred Stieglitz— the photographer, editor, curator, and promoter of photography.

During his time in the early days of photography, photography wasn’t taken as a serious “art.” It was looked down on by others.

Stieglitz put his entire life on the line to help promote photography. He innovated with his photo publication: “Camera Work” and helped build a community of photography enthusiasts.

Modern photography might not be around if it weren’t for him. What are some practical lessons we can learn from him? This is what I learned from him — and what you can learn for yourself:
