    I wince when I think of the amount I've spent on on glass and other bits and pieces this past year, yet I am still intensely resistant to paying for this sort of thing ... irrational I suppose .... mind you, for $5 a pop, I'll share my split-tone preset for LR ...

    I understand. I'm the same - it's only because I've been following this guy's blog for some time and have had good experiences with other ebooks in the series that I'm prepared to buy it.

    I think it also helps that I come from the UK and convert everything from USD into GBP so its actually only 3 quid :smile:

    yes, I know ... and what can you get for 3 quid these days ? (in England I mean) ... I reckon it's to do with the fact that it's not a "thing" ... if I saw a printed and bound version for a tenner I expect I wouldn't think twice

    At $5 for a 100 page ebook I bought it even though I own Silver EFEX. Bargain at less than a copy of a photo mag at the shop.

    Thanks for this olli! Interestingly when it first came out they were offering a chance to win Nik's Silver Efex - that was on April 12th.

    His site looks very interesting and so does the book - much appreciated!
