jlehet: As I've posted, I'm going to spend the money I'd normally spend on CS7 (and not for Creative Cloud now) on other stuff. First off: Nik Collection -- which is great! But I find I have to hunt around the internet for instruction. Lynda.com has some useful video.
Question: workflow. It seems clear after a day with it that the best possible workflow for these plugins is as a smart filter in a photoshop Smart Object. However, I'm trying to keep my workflow from being locked into proprietary Adobe formats, for reasons that will be obvious to many who post here.
My solution for now is to work with the smart object/smart filter, but also save it as a flattened tif.
Any Nik users? Workflow advice? Other advice for keeping a flexible workflow but not being locked into proprietary formats?
Hello jlehet,On Nik's home page go to learn>On Demand Videos. There are many many previous webinars posted there.
Sadly it seems Google has stopped the new live webinars and the Nik Radio podcast as far as I can tell.
As far as the workflow, I think the additional flattened tiff is a good idea. If your layers are important maybe you could save a PSD without smart objects as well. I know that On One has layers and saves as psd. I understand there are others that read PSD as well. I'm guessing they might hose up on a file with smart object in it though. shrug
Thanks Dpreview for posting this.
I see a distinction between the two advisories where Nikon Europe seems to acknowledge that it could be coming from inside the camera, while Nikon USA only goes so far as to say "naturally occurring dust"
Got a chuckle out of "bleeding obvious". I guess I'll have to click on the links in your articles more often.
This is simply gorgeous!
