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
- 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’.
