Fujifilm Releases X-T2 Firmware 4.10

DxO Releases Nik Collection 2018

DxO has released their much-anticipated Nik Collection 2018. Now, to be clear, it’s no longer free (as it was when Google was letting the project die a slow death) but that’s fine because it’s been updated to support the latest macOS and Winders versions, to operate with the latest Adobe titles, and for better stability.

A free 30-day trial download is available, or $50 if purchased before July 1, 2018, $69 thereafter.

As I’ve said before, an updated Silver Efex Pro would be worth almost any price!
