Learn Nik Viveza 2 Secret Adjustments

In this video, I share several Viveza 2 secret adjustments. These can help you achieve impressive results quickly when adjusting your images. Whilst you can buy the Nik Collection from DxO, you can also get it for free as I explain in this article.

If you’re a landscape photography you may know about Nik Viveza 2. This advanced plug-in for Lightroom and Photoshop is perfect for naturally enhancing your photographs. Even if you do use Viveza for your image adjustments, you might not be achieving the best results. Part of the problem is that we tend to be victims of our own thinking. Allow me to explain.

Take for example the Shadow slider in Viveza 2. The natural tendency for most photographers is to push the slider to the right, revealing hidden detail. But what happens when you move the slider to the left? When we do this the shadows become darker but still retain detail. Target this change on selected areas and you can create much more interesting photography.

Another example is the Saturation slider. When photographers want to create more intense colours they tend to push the Saturation slider to the right. This can cause a loss of detail where areas of the image quickly become overly saturated. An often overlooked alternative is to target the colour but reduce its brightness with the Brightness slider.

There are several of these Viveza 2 secret adjustments you can use. This video will introduce you to the ones I find most useful.
