There are a few things I don't like. The price could be a little lower. Launching the plugin from Photoshop doesn't save to a new layer. You have to launch it in standalone to save to a proprietary format with settings saved, but you can save your settings to a preset to reuse on other images. Other than that, it's got some very nice settings that I really liked. Especially the ability to boost the saturation of individual colors. I was hesitant at first to buy since I already own Intensify Pro, but both programs really compliment each other, and there is little overlap between them.

This is one of the first Macphun applications I ever used and it is amazing. Before using tonality I was using "Nik Silver Effects" by Google. As I did pay for both I can say that Tonality was the better buy. The CK version is exactly the same as the pro version which is good because that is what I was using before the CK upgrade was offered. What is really nice about Tonality is that Macphun and it's contributors keep adding to the product. You can get even more presets and textures from Macphun and I guess you could brew your own as well. Another nice thing is you can get granular with saturation and luminosity. This will allow you to bring out a separate color in the black and white picture. Thus you can have a bright red neon light standing out in image that is black and white otherwise. Or maybe red lips on a black and white face. There are so many presets for specific needs along with some HDR options. Again you can dial in the effects from subtle to in-your face. With the pro version there a so many ways you can manipulate the image even rocking it old school with just about every film emulsion that ever graced a 35mm box, Ilford, Fuji, and of course Rochester's finest, Kodak. The only draw back I can mention is render time. My poor little 13in Mac really struggles to spit out the pixels. If you have an older Mac with only a limited amount of installed RAM your machine too will struggle. It's not quite as bad as with MacPhun's Aurora which really bogs down the 13in, but still if you are processing more than a few images it does get on one's nerves. I can not stress enough how if you use any Macphun product that you should run that product by itself, especially if you are using as a Adobe Lightroom plug-in. Lightroom plus Macphun is all a more modest Mac laptop can handle.

Great tool, I have both this and Silver Effects Pro, they are different enough to warrant owning both. Tonality Pro provides the user with more detailed options and control over more aspects of the image.

I can't tell from the material on their site if I would prefer this to SilverEfex Pro — I am already comfortable with the Nik software, but it's hard to compare the features and capabilities. Does anyone have any insight between the two?
