Using CE4 with a Custom Recipe; this is my first venture using a Recipe. My reason for posting this is the 3D effect of the drops.

franz from Baden, Austria

wow, a very interesting result ... what is a recipe in this context?!?

14 Oct 2011 8:45pm

@franz: In Color Efex 4, you can stack several filters together. If you like the final results and think that you would like to use it again, you click on Recipe, give it a name, and then your work with all of the settings is saved in the Recipe folder for future use. There are a number of recipes that come with the software. One of those was used for the heavy lifting with this photograph.
