Nik Software 1091BB Reviews

Complete Collection Software Plug-in for Lightroom and Aperture is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 105.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Software Package First off let me say I am a big fan of NIK software. That said this package of apps is ver use full in all aspects of my work, from creating HDR images to just doing routine clean ups of my images or really refining and polishing those special shots that really stand out but need something more. The one thing I have learned and am still learning is to be careful not to over process the images, I am learning to do just the basics at first and them really study the image before going further. These are a very powerful set of tools, and NIK provide great support, online tutorials and on going education to back it all up. Well worth purchasing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful tools at a great price I am new to the Nik Software plug-ins and have been considering purchasing one or two of the plug-ins until I found a reference to the Complete Collection at B&H. Given the price of the collection, it was an easy decision to just buy the complete collection, so that I will be able to explore the capabilities on my own pace. So far, I found HDR Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro 3.0, and especially Silver Efex Pro 2 to be the most useful plug-ins. The interface is very easy to use, and many included presets provide good starting points for the picture development. The only cons found so far are related to the installation process. Some of the plug-ins did not find Lightroom and required manual configuration steps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great deal for anyone with Lightroom.. Nik's support and training is superb! They offer 15 Free webinars each week to teach photographers how to get the most from the software... Also, I enjoy their guest photographers which teach how they use the software.. I first purchased HDR as a stand alone Plugin. It was so good that I had to have the Collection! There are three things I would not give up: Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8 IS L, Lightroom 3 and the Nik Collection...... The only Negative is: it would be easier if HDR opened the same method as the remainder of the software. It runs on larger Bit Depth and requires a slightly different Export... Minor inconvenience but a Great Collection

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The price is right Been looking at getting this product for a while. The lightroom version is MUCH cheaper and is amazingly convenient to use all these software programs. The u-point technology is pretty amazing and is a great new way to add localized changes to a photo. Incredibly fast to apply changes and an all over great product (especially for the $200 pricetag). Only negative is that you can only apply one change/filter to a photo at a time which severely lowers workflow time. Guess thats the only reason to get the photoshop version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nik Software Suite Some say difficult to navigate. Just check a few of their tutorials and it will be very intuitive. Only complaint are the painfully long registration numbers that you need to enter when you for each application some even both for Lightroom and for Aperture. I use the application with Aperture without any issues. I just found out that the install also creates stand alone applications in the NIK folder, since this is how Lightroom requires their plug-ins to work. Having the stand alone application makes that you also can use them with Capture NX2 and other picture editing programs that can call external editors. Download the trial and see if it works for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great collection of powerful tools Purchased the complete collection after trying out Silver Efex and Viveza. The collection gives you all products on a bundle and it's an efficient way to buy them. The products themselves are relatively easy to use, and if you are using aperture or lightroom you will find it easy to pick up. My only complaint is the installation procedure- all products have to be installed individually, and all serial numbers entered individually. Other than that it's a great set of products that will make any serious amateur or pro photographer's life easier, and speed up your workflow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Saint Nik steps toward photo heaven Installed NIK complete collection for Lightroom and am excited by the powerful image editing available to me now. I'm just scratching the surface but getting the basics done are fairly easy from noise reduction, BW development to playing with photo styles' presets. Nik's website has basic tutorials. However, there are also many shortcuts keys, tricks, etc that I just started finding out about. If you don't dig a bit on your own then the learning curve is steeper. Pity these are not included in a manual--hence 4 stars. Oh but what pictures I'm developing now and still much more to learn. Recommended product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must-have for any photographer These filters are a must-have for any photographer. Just go ahead and spend the money for the full suite as you will use every one of them. Dfine is a fantastic noise filter. It produces amazing results. Viveza gives you all kinds of freedom for artistic expression you just don't have with traditional filters. Silver Efex Pro is great for doing B&W work. I'm using the Lightroom plugins and they work great for my workflow.
