Apart from the free addition of Analog Efex some time ago (two years already?) I haven't noticed any changes or upgrades since I've bought the collection a couple years ago. Good news anyway for those folks who don't already have it - before Google took over, Silver Efex Pro alone sold for $199 and despite its 'age' the NIK collection is still one heck of a plugin suite IMO.I've been thinking about buying it, now I'm happy that I haven't yet.. I just hope they won't stop the development (not that I know how active it has been anyway).
No, it's free. They haven't cleaned up all of the language on their web-page - it still says stuff like "now more affordable than ever!" (which I don't think they meant as a joke), but it's completely free. The demo has been free forever.Sorry. It ain't free. Just a 15-day demo.
Same here. I use Silver Efex, Color Efex, Dfine and Nik Sharpen (when printing) tools all the time. I'm afraid, though, this probably means they will not continue to develop it. Good news for anyone who doesn't have the Suite, but sad news otherwise.I really hope they keep developing it. The Nik plug-ins (mostly Silver and Color Efex Pro and Viveza, but I've used a couple of the others on occasion). I paid full price for it back in about 2011 and frankly I'd be lost without these tools...
OK, go here:
Then they're just plugging the free demo.
Dang, Luke... I never thought of that :-Dand of course it gives you control points for selective noise reduction
