Category: Nik Collection
Welcome to a category devoted entirely to the Nik Collection, perhaps one of the most important and best-loved plug-in collections ever. The collection includes:
- Analog Efex Pro: A toolkit for creating an infinite array of wild, dramatic and evocative analog film effects
- Color Efex Pro: A large collection of photo filters which can be stacked into one-click ‘Recipes’
- Dfine: A noise reduction tool which is useful but arguably past its sell-by date
- HDR Efex Pro: HDR plug-in for merging multiple exposures or tonemapping single images with a selection of great presets
- Sharpener Pro: Interesting and technical sharpening tool, but your host app probably does it better these days
- Silver Efex Pro: Superb black and white plug-in that captures the depth, drama and richness of black and white like never before
- Viveza: Selective adjustment tool for applying the same kind of dodging and burning you might use in black and white to colour images
Currently Google is offering the Nik Collection as a free download in both Windows and Mac versions. It has also announced, however, that it will not longer develop it.
So… get it while you can!
