Looking for PhotoShop Filters for weddings

  1. I'm looking for some PS Filters that I would use mainly in weddings.
    I've heard nothing but good things about Nik Multimedia Color Efex.
    There are 3 versions of this software Standard, Select and Complete
    with prices from $90-$250. My question is do I need the Complete
    version or can I get by with the Standard since I'll use it mainly
    for weddings. Or perhaphs someone can recommend another brand of
    Filter Software.
     
  2. Shane, I have an old version of nik Color Efex Pro and don't use too much of it for people photography, find it much more useful for scenics. My favorite in my current workflow is Auto FX Mystical Lighting and Tint and Tone. I just posted a question about Kubota actions which many are specifically for wedding photography but have only had one reply. Definitely worth a look: http://www.kubotaworkshops.com/products.php
     
  3. It would depend on what effect you want. Much can be done in PS by just learning the program. Or, you can use actions that others have created. Check out http://www.atncentral.com for some free ones. Some might produce the effects you are looking for. Do a google search for Photoshop tutorials and you'll find all kinds of fun effects you can create without buying plug ins, and learn some great PS skills along the way.
     
  4. Try the link below. You ca get all the actions on the website for $45

  6. Great input guys. Thanks.

    Shane, I use and love Color Efex. I use it with almost every photo project I do. Not every filter works for every photo, you just experiment and find what works according to your own creative expression. Here is an example of one of the filters. Monday Morning Blue.
