Hi,
I've started using Silver Efex Pro 2 but find it take a long time to process 1 photo- PHOTO->EDIT IN SilverEFEX-> Carry out my editing -> Save, then do the whole process again for next photo.

Is there any way to-
1. batch process/edit with Silver Efex Pro 2?
2. use Silver Efex Pro 2 as a preset within LR? (I don't think so).

Thanks,
Pa.
Cheers,
Pa

I find it pretty nippy! Do you have enough ram in the computer to avoid it having to use a swap file?

The real answer to that "NO".. You have to process them individually. Because if you apply any control points to your initial image. They are applied in exactly the same place and strength to forthcoming images...

Having said all that. If you are only applying filters to your images. You can create a photoshop action to repeat theses steps and batch process in photoshop.

Hi, Do you mean that I process one in Silver Efex Pro 2 and then in LR I can 'copy' and apply to multiple images?

Sorry I cant speak for Lightroom. As im a photoshop user. But its certainly possible in photoshop. (To a point. ) Maybe a Lightroom user can give you more details and ill go back to sleep....
