Nik Software (HDR Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro) was recently purchased by Google, since then not too much has happened. Well the HDR Efex Pro 2 was released but not much else.

I finally decided to purchase HDR Efex Pro over christmas, which lead to me getting what I thought was a spam email pretending to be from Nik Software, turns out it was real! If you have purchased any Nik Software product in the last 5 Years you are eligible for a free upgrade to the new Nik Collection.

Because I purchased HDR Efex Pro in December, today I get For FREE :

  • Color Efex Pro 4
  • Dfine2
  • HDR Efex Pro 2
  • Sharpener Pro 3 Output Sharpening
  • Sharpener Pro 3 Raw Presharpening
  • Silver Efex Pro 2
  • Viveza 2

The retail price for the new Nik Collection is $149. Which is less than the old Silver Efex Pro price, this is an incredible bargain. These are great photography tools.

The email in question, which has been put in a few peoples SPAM folders was from ‘The Nik Collection by Google’. Subject ‘Your upgrade to the new Nik Collection by Google’.

The email body:
