I have seen some old cars done up with HDR and the photographers have made the rust beautiful colors. Seems like photoshop doesn't quite give the brilliant colors. Would this be something that NIK software does very nicely?

Photoshop can give you the most brilliant colors in LAB color mode.

Thanks mshi,

I know lab does do nice color. Do you think it does better than NIK ?

NIK makes it so easy, Color Efex 4 as well as the HDR give the 30 day trials a try.

In my opinion it's NIK all the way. Check out their online videos.


Go here and select HRD Efex Pro in the second drop-down seach box. Lots of info there.

Color Efex4 is amazing, IMHO Topaz is a also ran. Lab is a pita and rarely worth the effort, again IMHO.

What are you talking about? Have you even tried Topaz or have you used any LAB techniques before? I find Topaz to be miles ahead of NIK's products, IMHO. And I own both.

I like NIK yes I have Topaz, we disagree big deal. If I don't agree with you I'm wrong? You think quite highly of your self.

No, you are the one who said that Topaz was an also ran and that LAB was a PITA. I'm asking you to support your opinion with some real experiential data.

If you dismiss Topaz without even saying you've tried it, let alone own it, why are you surprised that people question your comments? (And why do you react in such a strangely aggessive way?)

I offered an opinion, I like NIK and the results is gives, You can feel free to disagree and Like
Topaz. I don't need to prove anything, I have my opinion and if you like Topaz better thats cool with me, really. People can down load the trials and give em a try . They may say we are both full of it and ONONE is the best. Guess what they may be right

PS: It was assumed that I hadn't tried Topaz, because how could anyone not like Topaz better.A biased preconception based on personal preference and a personal attack.

I think Nik software can make it easier for you to achieve the look you want.

No, it was questioned because you didn't mention it when it was clearly pertinent to the discussion.

But your answer certainly shows why you'd jump to that ludicrous conclusion.
