Today we’re making the Nik Collection available to everyone, for free. Photo…
Ooops wrong forum sorry, admins please move to correct one
And worth every penny. Maybe it has something to do with all the original designers leaving when Google took over. Many went to Macphun.
For those who purchased in 2016, google can issue a full refund
just downloaded it to use in ps. a learning curve ahead.
I haven't DL yet, but I agree. This video seems to be a very good overview of the functions.
My understanding is that Google isn't supporting the Nik Collection anymore, so it is essentially abandonware. It may work today, but it may not work with the next OS update, so it would be wise not to get too dependent on it as part of your workflow.
Windows 10 isn't even officially supported if you look closely...
If you do Mac and want the evolved and supported versions of those Nik apps, go to Macphun and do a trial of the Creative Kit package and Aurora HDR. The Macphun apps can be standalone, plugins to LR and PS, and extensions to Photos.
Almost anything that runs on Windows 8 will run on 10, including devices that need drivers.
Can these programs run as stand alone apps? I use DXO.
For the most part, yes. But they're FREE, you lose nothing by downloading them and trying them out for yourself.
Hi, I've read you can drag & drop TIF (and maybe JPEG) files to the EXE files (or a shortcut) for the Nik apps.
I just downloaded the NIK collection to try it with DXO.
To export a file to a NIK program just go to the file-menu and select Export to Application.
The NIK collection can be found under C:\Program Files\Google\Nik Collection.
So it seems to be quite smooth.
