By Dan Lebryk TOP 100 REVIEWER on April 29, 2009
Tiffen has delivered a winner with this software. They have packed more filters in here than any photographer would likely use in a lifetime. This particular more advanced version of, Tiffen Dfx Essentials Creative Digital Effects Software, is super simple to use. Each filter can be used at preset levels, or it can be tweaked with parameters. The workflow is different and more photo-like than the twisted difficult to learn menus and words in Adobe Photoshop Elements.

With this standalone version, you load your digital image, which appears in the center panel. Across the bottom are selections for different gangs of filters - much like choosing from the Tiffen filter catalog. You click on the gang, then click on a selection with that group - so HFX may have gradients included. Then a panel on the right fills up with all the intensities for that filter, HFX will vary from 1 to 8 with greater softening effect. You then click on the filter you want, and the preview in the center updates your picture. Don't like the effect, tweak it with parameters.

If you need to add another filter, simply go to the lefthand panel and click on a + button to add another filter. Don't like a filter in the stack you added, click the zap button on that filter and it's gone.

Happy with what you did, simply save the picture out to a JPEG file. Honestly, the software is this easy to use. No you will be truly amazed at the simplicity.

There are some more sophisticated tools in here. They are just buried a bit. To find the usual suspects for blemish cleaning up, color balance correction, red eye removal, etc., you have to select the Image Filter.

This software is amazing, and so much fun for the money!! I particularly like the defog and colored enhancing filters, but there is no limit to how creative you can be with so many choices. There is only one drawback (and why I didn't give it 5 stars): after applying a filter and saving, a lot of the meta data is lost. I emailed Tiffen about this, along with some sample photos. After checking it out, they said there was a bug in the EXIF that will be fixed in the next version. So beware, you will lose some meta data. I am still happy with my purchase, and use this software often as part of my workflow.

Update 1/10/11 - I finally updated my Mac from OS X 10.5 TO OS X 10.6 and this sofware didn't behave property. An update to the latest version 2.0.2.2 is required when updating to Snow Leopard and is available for download from Tiffen.com. I did not have to re-enter my license code, it must have been stored somewhere on my computer.

Not sure if Amazon is shipping the latest version or not. The update fixed everything but NOT the EXIF data loss problem.

This software has the effect of making me think in different directions in a positively creative way. It's UI is intuitive. You can take any image and start experimenting with all the "What ifs?" that you can possibly evolve your ideas into.

I've got the stand-alone version and it works just fine, as my main thrust is always in dabbling into new avenues of presenting the essence of the image. Besides, think of all the $$$ you save in comparison to buying these filters separately for your camera.

I should mention that it's only crashed once, on the first day, when I pushed so many different buttons it wasn't even funny. So that was purely my own fault. All in all, this has become my new favorite "box of idea crayons", and the price is worth it.

I would love to recommend this product because it seems very useful on the surface. Sadly, I cannot. While many of the filters are useful, the software is not the least bit intuitive. This standalone version does not integrate with either Aperture or Photoshop. To use the filters in conjunction with those applications, you have to buy another version of the software. Most importantly, as useful as the application may seem, it is not worth the price. None of these filters are any more exceptional than actions and presets you can find out on the web for free. Furthermore, because the software launches an entire application, even in Photoshop and Aperture, it can be a resources hog. It may seem convenient to have everything in one window, but launching an entirely separate application in conjunction with Photoshop and/or Aperture can slow your system down.

It's a Christmas present for an amatuer photographer and since he is still working on building up his collection of various filters and special effect lenses, I felt this would be a perfect addition to his arsenal. :) I only gave it a 4/5 as I'm not the person it's for and I don't yet know how user friendly it will be, but from what I researched about it, it seems pretty dang cool. :)

SET INSTALLER & PROGRAM EXECUTABLE TO "WINDOWS VISTA" COMPATIBILITY

I really like this program; I am using it currently only in standalone mode so this review does NOT pertain to it as a PhotoShop Plug-In.
The standalone user interface is very intuitive. It encourages playing around with different settings.

This program works with Windows 7 64-bit, but you need to set the installer to "Windows Vista" Compatibility as well as the program executable once it is finished installing. Otherwise, it will not install.
