The Google’s Nik Collection of desktop image editing plug-ins is being offered free of charge. Nik’s Analog Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro, Viveza, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro and Dfine apps are all available as a free download from Google, meaning substantial savings to be had.
Nik’s applications put a focus on ease of use and accessibility, compatible with Photoshop, Lightroom and Aperture. The company was purchased by Google in 2012, and prior to that, each program cost approx £100 and a total of up to £500 for the software suite. Google have now opted to offer the whole bundle for £150 and made it available for all of its supported applications via a single install.
