Odell’s guide to Nik Silver Efex Pro a hit with photographers

Kudos keep coming in for Jason Odell’s newest interactive PDF book, The Photographer’s Guide to Silver Efex Pro.
“The Photographer’s Guide to Silver Efex Pro” is a must- read for any photographer interested in converting images to black and white. Jason wrings out the software in a logical and lucid way, making one aware of the tremendous power of Silver Efex Pro and how to get the very most out of it. Another winning eBook from Jason Odell! Highly recommended.”  –Tony Sweet, Nikon “Legend behind the Lens”
“Your book is absolutely superb. I have been using Silver Efex since it came out. Your book is exactly what I have needed for better understanding it.”– Jack Larson
“I have been doing traditional darkroom work for over 60 years and got Silver Efex as it seemed very familar with my background and experience. However, as a computer and software user my eyes glaze over “a lot”; so far your ebook has been easy to follow.  I must have at least 6 books on Photoshop… along with some other videos, etc. but everytime I open one to use a technique it is always a struggle; not so with your tutorial on Silver Efex.”– Ann Clancy
“The new book is awesome! Just bought it today. Thanks again!”— Michael Salerno
“Thank you for this wonderful book. I’m only on page 48, but what I’ve learned is considerable, even though I’ve used SEP for some time now.”– Guy Perkins
