Hi all

I have a question on using Nik plugins in the Lightroom flow.. As far as I can understand, when you open one of the Nik plugins, LR will first create a tiff file, and then let the plugin do its thing..

Assuming that is true, if I wanted to use several plugins on one image, for example use viveza first, then color efex pro second.. will that result in 2 tiff files being created, or will the color efex also process on the first tiff?

Giving the substantial difference in price between the two complete bundles ($600 for the complete and $300 for the LR bundle), I am trying to see how the plugins can work in my LR flow as painlessly as possible without having too much file cleanup.

Anyone have any ideas, or advice? Thanks.

Best Regards,
