I have always been a fan of Nik Collection and we have seen it go from a paid to free version, Google dropping the software in 2016, and DxO purchasing it in 2017 telling us photographers that they would continue to develop it. So, there for awhile I think we were all nervous that the support and development of a tool we all have come to love and appreciate would die.
However, DxO has come through with their word and released a new update which I am super excited about. There are other comparable software out there, like Topaz Labs, but I have found Nik to be the best, hands-down.
Nik Collection 2 is now available for $150 (on sale for $100 through June 30th) or you can upgrade from the previous version for $80 (on sale for $60 through June 30th). If you have never tried Nik, I highly suggest you do and for the price of this software, one that will take your editing to the next level, you won’t be disappointed.
