The Nik Collection 2 by DxO is a suite of seven plugins for Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom Classic, and Elements as well as the advanced RAW photo editing software DxO PhotoLab 2.3 ESSENTIAL Edition. It offers a range of 200 presets and creative effects as well as a number of retouching tools.
COLOR EFEX PRO
With its 55 creative filters and 20 recipes, Color Efex Pro adds color and ambiance to your photos. Each filter contains up to six variations so you can create an effect that is truly unique. Every effect can be customized with a number of presets, offering a nearly endless source of inspiration.
ANALOG EFEX PRO
By combining 90 tools and effects that recreate the look and rendering of clas- sical cameras, lenses, and films, Analog Efex Pro gives photos a distinctly vintage look. In addition to bright- ness, contrast, and satura- tion settings, it also includes vintage effects that repro- duce the style of traditional analog films.
SILVER EFEX PRO
With its 48 presets, Silver Efex Pro is the ultimate black and white conversion plugin. It offers an exclusive range of filters and effects to recreate the style of classic films. It also includes a range of color filters to reproduce the vintage feel of old-time photography.
HDR EFEX PRO
HDR Efex Pro easily creates images with a large dynamic range and can accommodate anything from the most realistic to the most artistic styles. Its advanced tone concordance algorithms, multi-image/single-
image features, and ghost reduction tools result in incredible images.
Thanks to its advanced algorithms, Dfine reduces noise in high-ISO images. Its processing technologies, which targets successive col- or ranges, selectively reduce chroma and luminance noise while still preserving a maxi- mum level of detail. With its direct profile access, Dfine easily removes noise without degrading your images.
Sharpener Pro is the most effective tool on the market for improving sharpness.
The RAW Presharpener mode emphasizes contours and the adaptive sharpness of entire areas within an image, while its OUTPUT Sharpener mode adjusts an image’s structure, contrast, and sharpness based on the desired export format.
Viveza makes it possible to apply multiple local changes to an image’s colors, shades, tones, and vibrancy. Using exclusive U Point technology from the Nik Collection 2, it can apply selective settings and editing options. Each control point can be moved with extreme precision.
DxO PhotoLab is an ad- vanced RAW photo edit- ing software that uses an exclusive approach in which cameras are first calibrated in the laboratory. It features powerful optical correc- tion tools and is the only software to fully integrate
U Point local adjustment technology within a RAW workflow.
42 CREATIVE PRESETS
Forty-two presets grouped together in a new “En Vogue” suite, have been added to the Nik Collection’s 156 effects and filters. Ten recipes have been added to Color Efex Pro, ten presets to Silver Efex Pro, 12 presets to HDR Efex Pro, and ten tool combinations to Analog Efex Pro.
