    This is a fantastic deal. I've been kicking myself since I missed out on this the last time it was offered and have been awaiting the deal's return ever since.

    This appears to be the same bundle that was (and, in fact, still is) available direct for $499 as the "Complete Collection Ultimate Edition". That name is not associated with this offer, but this bundle says that it works with PhotoShop, Lightroom and Aperture, so it appears to be the same thing.

    Thanks for passing it along!

    Yeah rather like Omni I paid rather more more for my Nik Software collection but still think its a bargain. Lightroom plus Nik is all you really need.

    Glad to see it at a very accessible price. Even if you dont buy it, it is well worth the download to give it a trial.

    Man, I already own the Nik Suite, and wouldn't be without it, but at that price it's a steal (if you have $149 available of course).

    Grab it while you can, folks!!

    (I have to wonder if Google are semi-abandoning the Nik tools, mainly having bought Nik for Snapseed, and offering this bundle accordingly)

    Does anyone know if this deal is for the actual CD boxset or is this more of a download link for a softcopy of the program?

    If you click on "Buy", it says
    "Nik Collection
    Electronic"

    So I would assume that means download, and they send you the Keys via email.

    and for EU customers, VAT is included in that quoted price:2thumbs:

    So 'google/Nik' have just sent me a link giving me a refund of over US$100 on my original purchase of the Nik Complete Collection plus a link that lets me upgrade it so that it is integrated with photoshop (theoretically an additional US$200.)

    It feels a bit like Christmas apart from the fact that I cant help feeling I am about to get screwed somewhere along the line.

    The 'Nik CD Collector's edition Ultimate' deal expired at the end of January to the best of my knowledge. That included a complete 6 CD box set signed by Nik together with the 'making of' DVD, the Nik unplugged CD, the Nik 'uncensored' calendar as well as the 'Nik meets Picasa first date' video....

    I've looked "at" these a few times, but the price has always scared me off. I take it from the reaction here that they're worth the effort? I only have Lightroom. I feel like I'm still learning it, but am getting better.

    According to this article on DPReview, this is apparently not necessarily a promo, but rather simply new pricing for the software suite. The other big change is that the individual products (e.g. Silver Efex or Color Efex) are no longer going to be available seperately.

    Some interesting bits from the article (emphasis mine):

    I wonder if one could take advantage of that last offer by buying one of the products (e.g. Dfine for $99) and then you'd presumably get the bundle for free.

    Thanks for the heads up. The code (which just worked for me for 15% off) was DZISER (not DSIZER).

    Not sure if they'll send keys via email. Have bought it, just got a mail with receipt and download links. Plan to go home and download it, hope it comes with pre-activation.

    Incredible indeed. I jumped right on it. Thank you for for posting it.

    Also thanks to 'alsoLuke' for the link to retailmenot.com, saving even more. It offset PA tax plus.

    I would be suprised after the fiasco Adobe just had with their "program only" activation for CS2. Emailing the keys at least makes it a bit harder for people to steal the programs, vs having no authentication needed.

    This key also works for a discount. You can save an additional 15% with code: JODELL which means you can have the full set of every Nik plug-in for only $126.

    It was confirmed that it's as I predicted. It is the pre-activated version for download. A mod (also an employee I guess) on Nik software group on flickr just confirmed it:

    I just purchased! Thank you! 2 out of the 3 coupon codes didn't work for me. Try all 3 if the first is not recognized.

    Is this Nik software non-destructive...ie if you use it from Lightroom how does it react? Makes a virtual copy?
