Google Nik for free!

nik collection bw

Google has decided to make their photoediting tools, the Google Nik collection available for free! Previously this set of pretty powerful photo enhancing desk top plug-ins  would cost you USD 149, but since a couple of days, Google has made it available for free.

If you’ve been wanting to play around and have some really cool effects on your pics, Nik Collection may be something for you to look into.

These are the requirements for your system:

and below some samples of what you can do with just a click (or more, if you want more control, you can, using control points in your work!)
