Nik Software + OneOne Software = One Suite Life

If you haven’t heard the news yet, OnOne Software has an absolutely fantastic deal going on right now.  If you own one of Nik’s powerful Plug-in applications, you can pick up a copy of Perfect Photo Suite 7 for 50% off.  This is an absolutely fantastic deal since these two programs compliment each other like a good wine and cheese.

Let me give you a quick example of how I use the two programs together.  I will often use Nik’s HDR Efex Pro to merge my brackets.  Then I will take that image and  see what it looks like after taking it through Color Efex Pro applying some selective Tonal Contrast to punch up the grunge and details.  Then I’ll use Perfect Photo Suite to add a texture or tone.  In this image I did both.

This is an image that I took while on a recent road trip with my family.  We were driving east of the DFW metroplex and this object was just sitting on the side of the road.  There was no way I wasn’t going to stop and grab a picture of it.  7 of them actually.  I processed my brackets with HDR Efex Pro.  Then I used Perfect Photo Suite 7 and threw Yellowed Paper Dark and Sunglow on it.  Finally I took that image into Photoshop and placed a mask on the OnOne layers and selectively toned them down.

So if you are currently using Nik for your post processing and don’t yet own the current version of OnOne’s Perfect Photo Suite now is an ideal time to upgrade.  The OnOne Suite has 7 different programs each offering you creative options for different types of photography.  They compliment each other well and each offer strengths for post processing.
