Qick quiz: when was this picture taken?
Absolutely right, in 2016! Google just made a very well-known NIK filter collection freely available. Before it would cost several hundred Euros!
Nik filters are very neat tools for:
- Simulating classic cameras, films, and lenses – Analog Efex Pro
- Color correction, retouching, and creative effects – Color Efex Pro
- black-and-white processing – Silver Efex Pro
- Selective Color Adjustments – Viveza
- HDR photography – HDR Efex Pro
- Image sharpening – Sharpener Pro
- Noise reduction – Dfine
Surely, there are some risks coming with the assimilation of NIK by Google…bit let’s see if they continue developing it…
