"Nik Software Training"


Fairfax Station, US
          

I just bought the complete Nik set of plug ins. Is there training (either a web site or DVDs)that folks know of and could recommend?
Thanks in advance!
Best regards,
Tom

Nikonian Jason Odell offers ebooks and webinars on the various Nik filter packages. I recommend them — and his photo safaris!

I would recommend luminescentphoto.com. I purchased the videos for silver efex pro 2 and they were very good. Jason Odell is a nik expert.

Jon and Steve,
Thanks to you both for the responses and the info. I'll definitely take a look. I've bought a couple of Jason's Capture NX2 training videos in the past and they were excellent. I didn't realize he also did Nik instruction.
Thanks again!
Best regards,
Tom

Jason's materials are the best starting point for the Nik products. He does a great job at covering what the filters are and how to use them.

In addition, Mike Moats is a terrific source of inspiration on using the Nik plugins. Mike is a macro specialist. His website is http://tinylandscapes.com/ .

Mike has a daily blog with some fabulous macro work, but he also covers a lot of ground on specific Nik filters used to edit the images. It's amazing what he is able to do from a creative standpoint to turn what appear to be ordinary images into something very special.

Mike also has a number of short videos (free) that demonstrate his post processing efforts.

This guy does an excellent video
He would have the best knowledge of Nik
He was involved with aperture from its inception as he was one of the guys working on it when he was with Apple
He does use all platforms including PS,
