While I love the new features in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2, I do wish that the custom presets I created for the first version could be imported to the new. The "Grainy Nude" preset I used for earlier pictures of model Dominique was one of my favorites. To recreate the preset, I started with an unprocessed image of Dominique and went through the processing steps a few times until it matched the other pictures.
A new preset I worked out is one for vintage Platinum prints.
