            I am a 20 year photoshop user and instructor, and nothing in PS comes close to the power of these NIK tools. The noise removal tool is incredible, virtualy wiping noise clean without sacrificing detail. The black and white conversion tool, Silver Effex is awesome, The Viveza is an outstanding tool for adjusting exposure locally far better than any native tool in PS, I was able to bring details back in images that I had given up on in Photoshop. The Color Efex and the HDR tools are my favorite, without a doubt the best color manipulation tools on the market. If you are serious about photography just download the trial versions, it won't take long for you to purchase them.

            Altho I'm an avid Photoshop user, I purchased this software package because it simply makes life easier.

            I have to admit the most difficult thing was activating the license (it is for academic use) which took longer than the posted time. And it took even longer to get the free upgrade.

            Putting that aside, the software makes vast improvements with already great images with a simple set of sliders. I was blown away when I learned about this software.

                Great for landscapesI like the suggested treatments from NIK but the really fun is in customizing your on.
                It does, however, take a while to figure out how all the pieces fit together.

                              I bought this specifically for the Sharpener, but the combined 6-pack Academic price was too good to pass up. All 6 products now work under 64-bit Win7, AND have at least one thing in common -- NIK's UPoint technology. I'm quite sure I will find this latest version (3.0) useful when I master it, but I found the 2 previous versions (1 & 2) much easier and faster to use. Sometimes software companies provide much more than one needs. Nevertheless, I'm sure I'll benefit from many of the new features in Sharpener. I also look forward to using the SilverEfex Pro, as well as trying out the other 4 products.

                              This set of plug-in's has it all and is very practical. The quality is excellent and the effects and controls are powerful, yet yield believable results.

                              My main issues are that it doesn't open "full screen" and that zooming and moving in the image window is clumsy. That is why I removed one star.

                              Admittedly, I'm still getting used to it.

                                The complete collection exceeded my expectations. A breeze to use if you are OK in Photoshop. The selective control points are fast and easy to use when making corrections on very small areas like the back of a hand or master corrections on the entire picture. Well done Nik.

                                This is a must for any photographer. This plug-in makes PS extremely useful to a professional photographer who wants to spend his/her time shooting as apposed to post-processing. It is so well integrated into PS, you wonder why it did not come with it in the first place.

                                    I have the photoshop plug in version so I still open photos there, but that is where it ends. I have gone from spending 7-10 minutes to edit a single photo to under 4 minutes-even B/W conversions . These programs are very easy to use with the control points. Plus, most adjustments can be made globally without going through camera raw. Great product that I highly recommend.
