If you want to learn how and when to use Nik, OnOne and Topaz plug-ins, this workshop is for you.
At the end of this workshop you will understand the various plug-ins tools, collections, as well as when, in which order and how to use them. You will also be in a position to better decide which ones you should buy and use.
Lightroom and Photoshop allow you to edit your images with infinite power and creativity, however, these tools require significant training and expertise to be able to perform more complex editing.
With the help of the Nik, OnOne or Topaz plug-ins, you can get your images to your final vision easier and faster, or you can use them to follow your inspiration and stylize your images and create stunning art.
