Google has released his Nik software collection for free. Advertised as the softwares needed for professional editing of photos, I've tried one of them: Efex Pro (HDR and RAW editing). I took an old RAW file I had and tried editing the photo while recording. Sorry for the music, didn't think it would be recorded. Name of the song is in the video description.


All in all, the software was pretty easy to use and very straightforward. I would recommend it to anyone looking for an easy to use or beginner editing software. That being said, I kept my UFRaw software (GIMP addon or standalone) software after trying Efex Pro, meaniong it did not surpass what I could do before.

It looks like a bunch of plugins for photoshop not standalone applications.

edit: My mistake. Some further reading suggests you can run them standalone, but support is limited. C:\Program Files\Google\NIK Collection
