I am very pleased so far...

Bought it today and gave it a try for a couple of hours - have to say I am very pleased so far. Great starting point.

These presets are amazing. All of Gavin's work and products are superb.

Silver Shadows is awesome

Silver Shadows is awesome. I use them more than Nik Silver Efex now.

John Francis - Owner

"Your monochrome set is the best out there"

John

definitely the best money I've spent

I just downloaded Silver Shadows and it is definitely the best money I've spent on presets in a very, very long time! Thank you!

Lisa Cahill Bolinger

Silver Shadows 2 goes toe-to-toe with Nik’s Silver Efex Pro and emerges unscathed. The ability to work completely within Lightroom with the tools you already are familiar with is worth adding to every workflow.

Jim Haverstock - Owner

Love the color fantasies as much as the Silver Shadows 2.0. Thanks Gavin Seim for great presets

Gokhan Cukurova

I LOVE SILVER 4!

I LOVE SILVER 4... I feel that your C1 styles give me a really professional look. The hardest part of using them is deciding which "film" to use.

Belladonna on black and white photos

Just wanted to let you know that you might want to think about recommending Belladonna on black and white photos. ... I use it regularly, even more on black and whites than color! Great work! Thank you!

David Hartman

"I am in LOVE with the ease and versatility of this set, Gavin! Thanks so much for the LR4 version."

Troy D Davidson

Seim put a lot of thought into these presets

It's clear Seim put a lot of thought into these presets.

You will quickly find great B&W edits...

These are the first actions I ever purchased for LR I used them today several times and I must say I am really impressed. I have NIK and a few other B&W programs for PS but these are really well made and if you follow the training video you will quickly find great B&W edits to start with saving lots of time then you just tweak them to your taste and style.

Paul Seymour

Love this new version...

Love this new version----it is subtly different!!!! Genius!!

Bill Polkinhorn

Monochromatix absolutely rocks! Hardly used Nik Silver Efex since I got them!

John

Gavin, your black and white presets are amazing! I just edited a few hundred images using them and I love the rich, bold balance it gives to my images. With your presets my images are now taken to a new level that is bound to get the attention of new clients!

Michael Anderson

Best 50 bucks I have spent in a while...

For the critics here, have you ever tried these presets, if you have not then maybe you should before you comment! Best 50 bucks I have spent in a while, but maybe I'm a dummy.

Ian Kydd

very satisfied...

Use Filmist and Silver right now and am very satisfied.

Edwin de Groot

excellent and will save a great deal of time.

Many thanks for the presets, they are excellent and will save a great deal of time. I've used several others but most need so much tinkering I might as well start from scratch

Ian Thompson - Owner

These presets have become an integral part of my B&W workflow.

Jay Taylor

I absolutely love your presets

I absolutely love your presets. I'm an enthusiast/hobbyist and use Capture One (as I'm a fuji shooter). I'm tired of spending hours with plug-ins like the Nik collection, etc, and your tools have helped me avoid that 95% of the time and stay within C1.

Matt Barry

Gavin, SS 2 is fantastic.

Paul Donihue

Again Seim Effects delivers! - Well done Gav - Fab set.

Gary Mailer

WOW THANKS!

Just bought the pack. Simply amazing. I just bought a Leica M10M and using your tools it really comes to life.

Luis Uriza

Spectacular...

Just downloaded... the presets are spectacular... thank you!

Whether your shoot weddings streets' or landscapes. Silver 5 brings you more refined black and white. Editing can get confusing in a world of so many plugins and options. Silver 5 makes it easy, because it leverages the software you already use. Advanced black and white edits are just easer with Sliver 5.  

It's not just more presets. Years of black and white shooting and development combined with the latest features and Ai tools, give you a black and white system that makes editing fast, and leaves you on total control.

You Will Mix Shadows Better!

I'm excited because Silver 5 takes control to another level. These are not just more black and white presets. Every recipe is new and you have all the ingredients with Silver 5. It let's you do things you never have done before. You're the chef and Silver 5 makes the recipes easier.

My mentor taught me that tone is the most misunderstood element in photography. I've learned that is especially true with shadow and the great black and white photographer always focused on their shadows.

Mod-Kit uses the latest Ai tools of LR and layer integrations of C! to create fast complex edits without the hassle. You decide the look and you mix it your way in just a few clicks.

 

Advanced layers and Ai: Silver 5 gets you better faster results than plugins knows that the native latest tools in our Raw apps naturally. That means you have more control without wasting time.

Darkroom Inspired: The new darkroom inspired mixes are second to none. These take the detail, atmosphere inspired by film, but with the clean control of digital

As digital arrived, I went all in. I got to study with masters like Ken Whitmire. In 2009 I founded the Pro Photo Show podcast and eventually my YouTube channel. I started creating the professional developing presets when Lightroom V1 launched. Then Capture One Styles, Photoshop Actions and photography courses.


20+ years in the trenches earned me a Masters (M.Photog) from PPA. I've been featured, won a few awards and now I live in Mexico exploring the magical light of the South while creating new tools and searching for shadows.
