Nik Software Webinar

I love doing workshops; having the joy to pass on some of my knowledge and help colleagues out. As regular readers of my blog will know, I’m a huge fan of Apple’s Aperture and along with Nik Software’s Viveza (and now Viveza 2), my workflow has drastically improved as far as speed and quality is concerned.

When Nik software approached me to do a webinar, I jumped at the opportunity to talk about my favourite plugins. Not only is this a chance to reach out to colleagues in a workshop sense, through the magic of the internet, our session can be accessed by many more people.

I’ll be talking about how some on Nik Software’s plugins (namely Viveza 2, Silver Efex Pro and Sharpner Pro 3) fit into my day to day workflow.

I hope that you’ll be able to join me for this free webinar:

25 May 2010 at 7pm GMT or 8pm CET

Hope to see you there :-)

  2. Hello — I participated in the webinar and enjoyed it very much. Lots of great info, and it was so helpful to actually see the various procedures on screen.

    This is a follow-up question. I’m still confused about sharpening via Aperture’s RAW fine tuning brick vs. the Nik RAW pre-sharpening plug-in. Do they conflict with each other; should I choose one or the other, but not both? In the past I’ve added edge sharpening via Aperture’s RAW fine tuning brick. But now that I have acquired the Nik plug-in, I’m unclear as to the smartest workflow. Thanks for any thoughts on this.

    • Many thanks for your kind words; really happy you found it useful :-)

      It all depends on the image, the level of noise (ASA) and the output. The way I have personally used it so far is to add some sharpen edges in the RAW brick and then export it into Nik’s Sharpener Pro. Aperture’s RAW pre-sharpening is a subtle and great start to sharpening the image and I wouldn’t say is the final step.
      As I mentioned though, there’s no real formula and it’s a case of seeing what works best for the image in question and also for how the image will be output. E.g. an image to be viewed on the web / screen, needs less sharpening that one to be printed on an inkjet printer.

  3. Thanks for your response. I’ll keep experimenting with these great tools.
