  1. Scott,

    thank-you for this great video. I downloaded a trial of Aperture 2 this summer and in that 30 days I did everything from importing pics to printing photographs and I even ordered a book. One thing I find with Aperture is that is is too easy to get great results! I agree that Aperture’s monochrome mixer is easy and powerful to use and I have gotten some results that even surprise me (did I take THAT photo?).

    Having watched Richard Harrington’s Aperture podcast on Nik’s Silver Efex Pro plugin for Aperture, could you comment on how far Aperture can take a person with monochrome photography and where tools like Nik’s software would be needed?

  3. Now, if you can just get that lay-about Fred Johnson to do one for Lightroom, you would have the triptych. :)

  5. Great look-see at the B&W filter tool Scott! I use this a LOT myself as it can do some really cool things with my pictures. I particularly like the red filter as it is a great skin-softener when you need it. And of course, custom filters are great too! Keep it coming!
