    I'm excited to announce our new site partnership with Nik Software.

    Many of our members are already enthusiastic users of Nik products, and we thought it would be a terrific to partner with Nik to bring our members discounts on Nik products and more. The idea came from our Super Moderator, Alan Roseman, and Alan did all the work to make this partnership with Nik a reality.

    As a result of the partnership, Nik Software will provide the following:
    • 15% discount for all Mu-43.com members on all Nik software packages
    • Monthly photo contest for Mu-43.com members with the winner each month receiving one full Nik software package of his or her choice (eg, Nik Dfine 2.0, Nik Silver Efex Pro 2, etc)

    We will be announcing the discount code as soon as it is active and plan to get the first contest underway very soon.

    Please join me in welcoming Nik Software to Mu-43.com!

    Special thanks to Alan Roseman for doing this for the membership :drinks:.

    As far as I know, the Nik products work with Photoshop, Lightroom, and Aperture but not Corel PaintShop Pro Photo X2

    The 15% discount is great news as I'm testing Silver EFEX at the moment. Perfect timing for me - I am too often in your situation hanzo.

    No Linux products. That's less useful to me, but I suppose it's good for all those folks using Windows and Mac.

    The webinars - a great point Lisa. I would recommend watching some of them even if you don't use the product.

    If I were a man of means, I would already be using their software. I look forward to winning one of the contests. Good work Alan and Amin.

    I have seen some good sales and bought the suite last year at a significant discount.

    Also, if you can qualify, they have academic pricing as well.

    Hi Rafael - PSPP X2 has an older and somewhat limited implementation of the Adobe plug-in architecture that we use for our plug-ins. We've talked to the product management and engineering team in charge of PSPP at Corel on several occasions to brief them on our needs should they decide to evolve that part of their software (we certainly hope they do).
