What Other Readers Say

This book is a great guide to using Nik Silver Efex to produce monochrome images that have impact. It explains that there is much more potential to fine tune an image other than just using the pre-sets and that the user can control and adjust the effects to produce the desired monochrome image. This is yet another concise book from Robin with excellent information.

Ian Bramwell

I often find that a book, however well written and technically accurate fails to demonstrate the techniques used in the examples, not for lack of technical proficiency on the part of the author but rather, for the lack of corresponding images upon which the reader can ‘practice’ the examples shown in the book. I find this essential for mastery of the material, as looking at some before and after image in the text can never compare with actual changes that are visible if one is actually working with the images. This book is not only technically helpful, but the author, by providing sample images for download makes the material easier to master than simply reading a book

I recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn to navigate the Nik Silver Efex by actually ‘doing’ rather than reading about it.

Laz Valdes

Of all of the books that Robin has created & that I have purchased, this is the one that has probably benefited me the most. Part of this simply has to do with what a useful program this piece of NIK software really is, but more to the point, Robin’s book detailing its many nuances & features has really turned my monochrome images from being dull & flat, into ones with much more tonality & dynamic range. It is probably the part of NIK software that I use & appreciate more than any other.
