No more boxed Nik Software – what do we get now?

With Nik Software going to download only, what are your choices if you still want boxed photo editing solutions?

(p.s. desktop Snapseed is also going too).

These three are your most comparable matches:

onOne Software

See: Perfect Photo Suite 7 – probably the closest comparison to ‘Complete Collection’ with some arguably more intuitive and useful features.

Perfect Photo Suite 7 includes the entire onOne range from black & white and filter effects to image resizing and layers. With a seamless integration into Photoshop, Lightroom and Aperture, or as a standalone product in its own right, onOne is a very good accompaniment to any image editing photographer. Good for RAW and JPG images too.

Star feature: Paint-in brush tool to work on specific areas of an image

DxO Labs

See: Optics Pro 8 Elite

Software that works in harmony with your camera and lens combination(s) to provide automatic image corrections. Optics Pro is an excellent combination of precision image correction (RAW and JPG) and creative effects. Sophistication meets creativity with very satisfying results.

Star feature: Downloadable corrections for a specific camera and lenses

Franzis HDR

See: Franzis Projects Platinum

The most natural ‘replacement’ for Nik HDR Efex Pro, Projects Platinum offers the latest in High Dynamic Range (HDR) processing. You can apply effects to a single image, or upload your RAW camera bracketing directly for tailored effects and editing. Preset effects give you a good base which can be customised and saved to suit your needs.

Star feature: The automatic ghosting removal feature is a huge benefit when working on bracketing images

onOne Perfect Suite 7 and a whole host of new products

We’ve just entered (probably) our busiest quarter of the year, so now would seem as good a time as any to introduce you to a host of new products on offer…

Perfect Photo Suite 7 from onOne Software is here (nearly)!

Most of you will be familiar with Perfect Photo Suite 6 – their next generation plug-in suite – and how easy it was to use. Well, now there’s a new version.

Perfect Photo Suite 7 gives you everything you need to realise your photographic visions in one package. Create images that are even more extraordinary with powerful new tools, new intuitive interface, improved performance, and direct integration with your workflow in Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and Apple Aperture. It will also work as a standalone application in its own right, allowing you to edit images in whichever way suits you best.

Stock is expected at the end of October – you can pre-order your copy here.
