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.

thank you to jonas269

...so this is not for the 99% if us who want simple stand alone picture tools.

You can use most these tools standalone (aside from sharpener/noise reduction), but it's not a replacement for basic editing tools or something like Lightroom/Photoshop. I'd recommend you tweak levels, white balance, and exposure before bringing them into this suite. That said, you can use most of them standalone by importing .tif or .jpeg images into the apps. I've been using the suite professionally for a few years now and I swear by it. Especially the Pro Contrast filter in Color Efex. That thing makes my photos pop. I probably wouldn't recommend it to casual photographers, though. They're specific tools for specific uses and for people with specific needs and they're a bit more complex than what the layperson needs for family photos or something.

It's an add in for Photoshop or Light Room - it adds the great effects into the tools, including includes Analog Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, Dfine, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro, Silver Efex Pro and Viveza.

I don't have either of these, are their freeware type image apps that these plugins work with?
