4.0 out of 5 stars Good Choice
A good solid overview of each program in the NIK Software arsenal. Goes into good detail on each program.
Overall the writing style of the author is a little flat (too cut & dried) for my taste, but the info is all there.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Exactly What I expected
I was looking for something a little more comprehensive in the actual use of the program. I felt it was a little short in this area.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, Oct. 6 2012

This review is from: Nik Software Captured: The Complete Guide to Using Nik Software's Photographic Tools (Paperback)
I was expecting a comprehensive overview of the Nik software line, but this book wasn't it.

The programs are described in general terms. For most of the filter controls the authors don't tell you what they do, instead telling you to play with them and see what the results are. The example images might have been useful if they were larger, but they are so small that seeing the U-point settings is tricky, and seeing the changes often impossible.

The worked examples at the end are a bit useful, if you want to replicate the particular looks they use. Unfortunately there aren't many.

The history of Nik Software is mildly interesting, but has no relevance to learning how to use the products.

This might be a useful book to read if you're trying to decide whether to buy the Nik software, but once you have the software it won't help you much.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much easier to use Nik Software !, Aug. 1 2013

This review is from: Nik Software Captured: The Complete Guide to Using Nik Software's Photographic Tools (Paperback)
Having this book close to the computer made it easier to use Nik Software.
The fact is that it is so easy to use, we think we got it all. In the book they
explain how to explore all the possibilities this software offers.
