    Viveza 2

    Hello people and merry christmas!!!!


    I was wondering how many of you use viveza 1,2 and what you think of it?

    I tryed it a bit today and i think it is a really useful application!!!

    Great how you can modify parts of the image....works pretty well in my opinion.

    Cheers,

    Yep, all the Nik Software stuff is well designed.

    Does't fit 100% in here, but do you guys use the noise reduction software from nik (dfine) as your primary noise reduction software?

    I need something for noise reduction and was thinking of getting dfine as i am quite impressed by viveza....

    Is it much better that the one in lightroom? Or better...are applications specaially designed for noise reduction much better than the lgihtroom one?

    Cheers.

    I have it, haven't really had the chance to try it much yet. But it looks pretty nice.

    I do like Nik Dfine. If I do NR i use that one

    LR 2 NR is rubbish, it's going to be much better in LR3 so they say

    Has anybody seen a reason to upgrade from Viv1 to Viv2. After looking at the website there isn't anything there about why I would upgrade and receiving a whole lot of spam from them telling me how great their offer is.

    Big thumbs up on nik software. Haven't upgraded to the new viveza but the early version serves me well.

    Personally try to avoid noise reduction as i personally feel it makes the photos look "soft"
