  5. I've found the Topaz plug-ins very nice and reasonably priced. The
    ReMask3 and Detail 2 are very worthwhile. Not automatic, but powerful
    and adjustable.

    Nik's Silver Effects is by far the best B+W converter I've used.
    Expensive as hell but I use it constantly!

    Two of my favorites, Topaz & Nik - I'll look at ReMask.

    Another one I like is iCorrect Edit Lab.

    Curvemeister is alot to to know; I need a lesson.

    I need a lesson about all of PS!

    I agree that Curvemeister is a lot to learn. I'd recommend that
    if anyone gets Curvemeister, they take the Curvemeister course offered
    at the Curvemeister website. Without the course, Curvemeister is
    almost impossible to use.
    Once you've taken the course and found out what you can do with
    Curvemeister, you'll find that you can't live without it. It's the
    first tool you'll use whenever you open a picture to work on.

    AutoFX is cool. For me, not a whole lotta use for much of the Mystic stuff,
    but AutoEye is very useful (one-click photo correction). It's outcome is
    different than the other one-click corrections I've used, and that could
    make it a nice option. I like it because it doesn't mess with the contrast,
    unlike most. It mighta de-throned my long time go-to one clicker. Plus,
    it's EZ.

    Thanks!

    PS: maybe yours is like this too... If you go to the installed AutoFX
    program directory, you might find plugins.8bf files. [Note, it helps if you
    can see file extensions, in Folder options/Advanced, uncheck "hide file
    extensions for known file types"] Copy & paste to PS Plugins root directory
    makes the stand-alone also a PS plugin. Most PS filter installers do this
    automatically, but AutoFX doesn't - gotta manually make it show up in the PS
    Filter list. I like plugins better than stand-alones to avoid an extra save
    & further image compression.
