Updated Nik Silver Efex from version 3 to v 4. However it still shows up as v 3 in standalone LR6. I have rebooted browser and laptop, but it still shows as v 3, although the interface is different.

Does this mean I have the upgrade that I paid for?

Thanks

The Nik Collection 4 does include an updated version of Silver Efex Pro 3.

Does v 4 only show as that if one is running DXO or updated LR? Thanks

There definitely does seem to be a different interface and some new options, but I checked the list of porgrammes and it is still v 3 there.

Thanks again.

Okay, so checked in Control Panel, and the latest version of Nik is listed there.

I am assuming it has updated because of the different interface etc, but not showing in LR 6, as it is an old purchased copy that I have, as I do not want to use subscription option.

The Nik Collection is a package of separate plugins. The 4 refers to the package version, but each plugin has it’s own independent version number.

I tend to use Nik in Photoshop where it opens a launcher and I can open any of the plugins as a new layer. I can’t remember if the launcher shows the Collection version, but once I open a plug-in, I see the plug-in version number, the same as you do when you are in LR.

I agree with this. I recently purchased the NIK Collection 4, and the help file shows this (a screen snapshot):

The latest release of the Nik Collection by DxO is "4"
Two of the plugins got significant changes: Viveza 3 (from the previous Viveza 2) and Silver Efex Pro 3 (from the previous Silver Efex Pro 2). Alterations to the other plugins in the collection were minor and their numbers, if they had one, were not changed.
