Some of you may have heard that Google recently acquired NIK Software, the maker of Snapseed (mobile photo editing app), and several other popular plug-ins for Photoshop and Lightroom. Many photographers, myself included, love these plug-ins and feared that Google would cease further development.
Well never fear, Google says development will continue and they are now offering them at a new, substantially lower price. Previously, each of the six plug-ins cost around $100, some a bit more. Now Google is offering the entire bundle of six for $149. And, if you have already purchased one or more, you can download the entire collection for free. This is a sweet deal!!
The plug-ins are well designed and save a lot of time in post processing. I frequently use Viveza (selective adjustment of brightness, contrast, saturation, clarity), Silver Efex Pro (B&W conversion), and Define (noise reduction). I have an older version of Sharpener Pro but haven’t used it for awhile. I’m looking forward to trying the new version and the other plug-in too.
