Testing a lens:
And playing with Nik/Silver Efex Pro 2:
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!
Digital Photography Review:
The statement went out over Google Plus (go figure), where the DxO team welcomed the Nik community into the fold with the following announcement (emphasis added):
Dear Nik Collection users,
We at DxO are very pleased to welcome the Nik community! We wish you a very happy holiday season and a healthy and prosperous New Year: may you be inspired to take spectacular photos in 2018!
Like you, we are passionate about photography and image quality. That’s why we view this opportunity with Nik as a commitment to ensure that you — that all of us who enjoy taking photos — are guaranteed to have the very best solutions at our disposal.
You’ll be happy to know that our developers are enthusiastically working on a new version of the Nik Collection to be released in 2018!
For my money, an updated Silver Efex Pro would be worth almost any price they could reasonably ask!
