I downloaded it Pam but couldn't get it to integrate to either version of PS that I've got installed. CS2 legit but outdated, CS4 pirate copy but it did want to attach to an evaluation copy of CS5 that I once downloaded but never opened or registered even when I'd uninstalled same. I'll have to splash out sometime.

I downloaded a trial version as well and I have to say it is quite nice to experiment with the control points and see how far you can go with, for example, structures.

Agree structures are really cool Sabrina, be a little careful on how far you bring them and also watch out for the dust spots that are accentuated by it Smiley

Efex is wonderful, but can be brutal for showing up every bit of dirt on the sensor.

agree Bob but its often the default 'structure' or detail settings that cause it and these can be reduced. other thing to remember is smaller aperturtes f16 oand above also do the same thing

Hi Des,

the documentation says it should with versions from CS4 upwards (except for HDRefex which needs newer versions).

It also requires windows vista or newer.

Does anyone know the cheapest place to purchase Silver Efex Pro 2.
Presently looking at $130 or so, to plug on to Photoshop.
Any improvement on $130 ?.....

Can't help you, I'm afraid, John. The person responsible for mine is away working  at the moment.
