    First attempt…seems o have worked very well. How do you find the NIK software – just trying the demo versions myself.

  • Thanks Dave. I love the NIK. Expensive but well worth it, they are just so versatile! I use Color Effex Pro, Silver Effex and Viveza the most. Haven’t gotten used to Sharpener and DFine yet, but that’ll come around.

    Sorry Garry – I really must apologize for the mistake I made in the title of the current 2, 3, 4 Challenge. It should have read 3 wheels instead of 2…

  • No worries George :)
