A month or so ago I wrote about a free Photoshop Plugin from Google called the Nik Plugin Collection. Today I’m going to share some of their default filters.
This post is going to concentrate on the the HDR EFEX PRO 2 tool, which creates HDR (High Dynamic Range) images.
This Plugin can work in two ways. It can either create an HDR Image by merging multiple images or it can do HDR Tone Mapping from a single image and make sort of a faux HDR Image.
Because there are 28 different “ready to go” filters I am splitting this post into 2 different days.
I apologize for the disgusting nature of the base image, but I considered it a good example. I’ll make up for it on Friday by publishing something cute and furry.
Here are the first examples from the HDR EFEX PRO 2:
The Original Image
Black and White Realistic
I know. Coca-Cola. Disgusting. On the positive, it is a rusted out, old abandoned Coca-Cola machine. Just like all Coke machines should be.
For the record, I found this one in Strong City, Kansas.
The rest of the filters will be unveiled on the morrow.
