How the Nik Color Efex Pro 2.0 Filters Work
Nik Software utilizes leading digital photographic filter technology to create powerful and versatile photographic Photoshop plug-ins. Nik Color Efex Pro 2.0 filters use the True Light color processing system that considers the existing color and light information in an image automatically to provide optimal photographic enhancements.
Each Nik Color Efex Pro 2.0 filter adapts its effect based on the detail structures, colors, and contrast range of each image. By identifying the unique qualities of the image that the filter is processing, each filter is able to achieve consistency across a range of images. This consistency provides greater productivity as the filters can be applied with the same settings across a wide range of images.
Nik Color Efex Pro 2.0 filters adapt to any previous filter adjustment or any other change made to the image to provide natural color and light enhancements. This feature becomes increasingly important since applying filters in a different order will provide you with more control over your images, as well as more options for great, natural photographic enhancements.
The combination of the True Light color processing system along with each filter's adaptive nature provides a truly unique system of controlling the light and color in virtually any image.

Version: Nik Color Efex Pro 2.0
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I read about and heard about Color Efex Pro for a long time.
Finally bought the Select version for a project and turned around 2 weeks later and got the Complete.
Really well thought out practical photographic filters. Adjustments can be applied on a separate layer mask so results can always be altered and the original is not touched.
There are a lot of practical filters here and thankfully there is even a "Custom" Tab where you can store copies of your own "Go To Favorites" and add others as the need and arrises and you realize what you can now do.
