Google Nik Collection at a glance:
The Nik Collection 2 by DxO is a great plugin that gives photographers, of all levels, a simple way to add creative effects to images without too much effort. Plus, the introduction of U Point technology for RAW editing gives users precise control over specific areas of an image - a tool which you'll probably find yourself using quite frequently. We really like the Nik Collection 2 by DxO and with so many people loving filters nowadays, we're sure it's going to be a big hit with new and old fans. The Nik Collection has always been a popular group of plugins which are compatible with Adobe, as well as DxO software. To give you a bit of history, Nik software first introduced the Nik Collection then Google bought it from Nik software as they really wanted Snapseed - a photo editing mobile app that's still incredibly popular. In , Google announced that the Nik Collection would be made available as a free download but the software started to play-up, with bugs creeping in, and as Google wasn't developing it any further, it soon became awkward to use.
