"Emulating NIK tonal contrast filter in CNX2"


El Sobrante, US
          

A friend was showing me how he uses some of the NIK filters in Photoshop. I really liked the tonal contrast filter effect on some shots. I don't use Photoshop but would like to be able to emulate the NIK tonal contrast filter for some shots, using CNX2. Does anyone know how I might do this or know just what NIK is doing in this filter? Thanks.

I originally posted this in the Adobe postprocessing forum, but Rick Walker said I might have more success with it here.

Hi Brian,

Do you have any of Nik’s Software installed on your computer now? And yes there is a way to use them in CNX2. The best way is to get Nik’s Efex 3.0 for Capture NX2 that works inside CNX2, but as far as I know you can’t buy it any more if you don’t have a copy. You can call Google to see if there is any way you can get a copy. There is a couple of ways to get around it if you don’t mind working with a TIFF file in the other programs from Nik or any other software you might have. The Edit List is a great program that lets you use all of them right out of CNX2 in TIFF format. Read this post here on the Nikonians and see if it answers your entire questions and if not get back to me and I can set you up a few different ways. But read this post first:

Hi, Bill. Thanks for the info/advice. I'll see if I can find NIK Efex 3 somewhere. I don't currently have any of their software.
