Actually, just the opposite is true of Nik Silver Effects. By using control points, you can selectively adjust the size, tone, contrast, etc. in specific areas. In the black & white image, I used about a dozen control points to get the tonal separation i was looking for. Be that at it may, thank you for your input. I'll create a separate layer and see what can be done. Ken
Obviously I have much to learn. I'll probably be up most of the night trying to learn control points.
