Hello my friends πŸ™‚

Β  Nik Software recently released version 2 of Analog Efex Pro. I have mentioned this Photoshop plugin quite a few times, saying that i wasn’t very impressed by it. Version 2 came to change that. There are many new features and filters available. You can now achieve a variety of looks ranging from a realistic analog feel to a whole new artistic and painting like result. I like it and i especially liked the multilens effect, which you can see on the top two photos. It basically takes your photo and divides it into strips and changes their order. In every filter category there is the i’m feeling lucky button that can produce some really interesting results. I certainly recommend that you give it a try πŸ™‚

Β  On other news, i will be away for a few days but i will come back with some new material to post finally πŸ˜€ So please stay tuned…

Enjoy your day,

Analog Spring

Β  I was just outside trying to find something interesting to shoot and i ended up taking loads of photos of blossoms, spiders and butterflies πŸ˜› That’s all there is around my house. For some reason when i took this photo i automatically envisioned it to have kind of a vintage look so i started playing around with Analog Efex Pro. If you don’t know it, Analog Efex Pro is a Photoshop plugin that simulates different styles and effects of analog photography. I love the Nik Software suite but i still don’t know how i feel about this particular plugin, which is the latest addition in the suite. I have worked with film and slides in the past, did a lot of darkroom developing and printing so i can’t really see how this plugin is supposed to give an analog feeling. Maybe this photo is not the best example but i would like to know your opinion! Have you even tried this plugin? Which plugin would you recommend for making digital photos look like they were taken with a film camera?
