inoriz Posted May 2, 2016 Share Posted May 2, 2016 Hello Damien, Thank you for your time and patience. I recently installed NIK just out of curiosity and fell in love with the Color Efex Pro - Dark Constrasts filter. However, rather than relying on NIK, I'd like to know how I can achieve the same effect from hand editing. This first picture is the original/starting point (only edit done was to convert to B&W) This second one is with the NIK filter run through and then taken down to 50% (how I like it) And the last is my final edit - I just added some levels on baby and the surrounding areas. I'd like to know what NIK did to bring out the 'flaws' in the picture. I love how the skin is not overly 'perfect' and the filter brought that out without having to painstakingly 'dodge and burn' every bit i want enhanced. Thank you!
