The first picture taken using my Canon 24mm tilt shift lens is this picture of St Mark’s Church in Ampfield – another black and white version using Perfect Photo Suite 9

I need to move on from Nik Silver Efex Pro. I forgot I had already purchased Perfect Photo Suite 9 by On One. I bought this back in the day when I thought it was just fine to

  • Buy any software.
  • Then not learn how to use it.
  • Use it badly. 
  • And conclude I don’t like it. 

So I bought Perfect Photo Suite 9 but barely used it. 

It is time to give it a go. This is the black and white image I produced.

And this is how I did it. 


  • Dramatic Sky


  • Red


  • Subtle

Save back to Lightroom as a PSD file. 

I didnt enjoy that. But to be fair I need to give it time. As much time as I have given to Nik Silver Efex Pro. 

Which is quite a lot. 

I think there is a newer version of the software suite from On One – I will look into this and report back.
