A Google Announcement

Today we’re making the NIK Collection available to everyone, for free. Get the NIK Collection

Photo enthusiasts all over the world use the NNIK 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.

Some Alternate Viewpoints to the Google Announcement…

“My understanding is that Google isn’t supporting the Nik Collection anymore, so it is essentially abandonware. It may work today, but it may not work with the next OS update…”
“Windows 10 isn’t even officially supported if you look closely…”
