Thanks for the link. There must be a lot of demand for it... It's 137Mb download and at the speed I'm currently getting, it's showing 5 hours remaining

EDIT: Failed on two download attempts I'll wait until later and give it one more try...

EDIT #2: Success on the fourth attempt Just waiting for the registration code from Franzis Verlag now...

Thanks for the link.

Rather cumbersome registration process - and it still tells me I need to "activate" the program within 30 days, but that might well be that I missed something along the way.

^^^ When you run it, you have to click on the "Internet" button - that takes you to a web-page which triggers an User ID / Unlock key e-mail; when that eventually arrives, you enter those numbers in the fields on that first splash screen, then the software unpacks and installs, and asks you again for the unlock key. It is cumbersome, I agree, but it works.

The user interface for the software feels quite clunky and unrefined compared to Silver Efex Pro, but it seems to be quite powerful - and it processes RAW files directly, not just TIFF and JPEG. Quite cool

For mac users, download the installer further down the page, 162mb. I had a hard time finding the info...

Oh and by the way, thank you!

Aside from the mails getting in my junk mail, everything works.

Most of their stuff seems to be a little clunky. Decent results, but more work than it needs to be. Topaz and Silver Efex are both better in my opinion.
