Google Nik Collection is free today.
Get it for Lightroom and Photoshop while you can.
 
Today we’re making the Nik Collection available to everyone, for free.

Photo enthusiasts all over the world use the Nik Collection to get the best out of their images every day. As we continue to focus our long-term investments in building incredible photo editing tools for mobile, including Google Photos and Snapseed, we’ve decided to make the Nik Collection desktop suite available for free, so that now anyone can use it.

The Nik Collection is comprised of seven desktop plug-ins that provide a powerful range of photo editing capabilities -- from filter applications that improve color correction, to retouching and creative effects, to image sharpening that brings out all the hidden details, to the ability to make adjustments to the color and tonality of images.

Starting March 24, 2016, the latest Nik Collection will be freely available to download: Analog Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro, Viveza, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro and Dfine. If you purchased the Nik Collection in 2016, you will receive a full refund, which we’ll automatically issue back to you in the coming days.

We’re excited to bring the powerful photo editing tools once only used by professionals to even more people now.

Curves are somewhat of a panacea when it comes to Photoshop adjustment layers. With curves you can do pretty much anything you can do with the other adjustment layers: contrast, color correction, apply looks… One could argue that you can virtually eliminate all other Photoshop features, as long as keep curves and masks. Of course, you would [...]

How long before people are no longer needed?
Choosing the best photos has always been more a matter of art than of science, whether it's for a Facebook page or a marketing campaign. That may soon change, however, thanks to some new technology out of MIT.

Wow... if this isn't the gazillion dollar question. It is going to hit the human race like a tidal wave. Few yet see it coming.

Dear Adobe, Your Mobile Apps are a Mess
Do you feel this pain or is editing DSLR photos on your iPad a non-starter for your workflow?

Flickr Year in Review 2015
Only 3% of cameras used in the Flickr community were mirrorless. Interesting statistic considering all the hype surrounding the format this year. The've done a great job with social marketing, but it looks like they have a long way to go before overtaking traditional formats.
At the heart of Flickr are our photographers and the visual stories they tell. Let's take a look at the stories that captured our hearts in 2015.
