Has anyone figured out an easy way to do Sepia with NX2. I Convert to B&W then colorize. Since it looks like Nik is not going to have Silver Efex for NX2 for a while (I hope) I want to try to figure this out. I have tried the Color Effects>Sepia but I cannot control my tints to give it more dark tones. Just looks a tad off Sepia to me.
Thanks for all the ideas. I think I am going to set up a control step and save it. I am glad NX2 will let me do that. I like the darker richer sepia tones. Maybe I am just a little picky since I got spoiled by Silver Efex. In Color Efex, I tried the Antique Photo and darkened it and reduced the grain it get close but I just need/want a little more flexibility. I looked for the Multiple Color Tone in CEP but could not find it. I found the Paper tone and played with that too. Soo I just have to find the tint I like and save it.
There's a sepia feature available right in the edit list.
Select New Step / Select Adjustment / Photo Effects and then in the edit step choose Sepia from the Enhance Photo dropdown. There is also a check box to Enhance Dark Tones as well as other adjustments.
