Get it!
 
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.

"I, for one, cannot understand how the `badger lobby' seem to mind not at all about the slaughter of thousands of expensive cattle, and yet object to a managed cull of an over-population of badgers — to me, this is intellectually dishonest"

*Welcome to Albertastan!"

Love it!

The normally message-managed Tory caucus emerged for the media's post-mortems Wednesday working through various stages of fear, denial, blame and regret.

"It was more like a morgue. Someone said it was like — it's Albertastan now," said Justice Minister Peter MacKay.

The ballots cast in Alberta on Tuesday didn't have any federal names on them, but Parliament Hill was a study in contrasts the morning after, as New Democrats cheered, Conservatives lamented and Liberals refocused on their tougher road toward this fall's election.

Happy Cinco de Mayo to my friends in Alberta. In fact, you will now celebrate that day more than we do in México.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is it not the school districts IT department's responsibility to ensure that the software they used are configured within the confines of their respective privacy policies? (Ie. Google has submit anonymous data enabled, but the IT department didn't both turning it off when they configured their google apps site...)

(1/3- Good) You certainly pay for ambiance here. The strengths of this establishment are everything but their entrées. While the entrées are well done, they are perhaps a bit over priced. The drinks, appetizers and desserts were all amazing and worth the price. Also a warning on the truffle fries. They taste amazing, but you can't eat more than a handful.

Just picked up my first Lexus today and the experience blew me away. No pressure from Cam and Cecilia, just honest advice and hard work. Even with a few small hiccups on delivery, they worked to make it right. I don't know if I'd go anywhere else to buy a car in the future.
