NIK COLLECTION 4

Yesterday DxO announced the release of the Nik Collection 4. It includes 8 software programs, 250 presets, and built-in U Point technology so you can explore every aspect of creative photography.

Here’s the scoop:

  • 250 exclusive presets to help you find your own style. Explore an amazing creative palette with help from presets designed by professional photographers, and transform your photos into genuine works of art.
  • Revolutionary U Point technology. Adjust the settings of specific areas in your photos with Control Points. No need for masks or complex layers. Each selection is automatic and incredibly precise. Control points have always been one of my favorite features of Nik, and they are simplified and improved to make them even better!
  • Seamlessly integrated into your workflow. Keep your normal workflow. Nik Collection by DxO can be used as a plugin within Adobe Lightroom Classic, Adobe Photoshop and DxO PhotoLab.

Exciting News for the Summer Conference Replays!

I’ve purchased a Business Subscription to Vimeo and will be hosting the replays of the sessions there. This should alleviate issues that people had with finding the specific session they want to watch (as they will be individually loaded). I think this will also help with playback issues that a few people had.

Sessions will still be password protected and available only for those who purchased a seat in the Virtual Creative Photography Conference. They will be available for 60 days to watch your favorite sessions again or watch any that you missed live.

NOTE: To keep our participants and event secure, you must set up a
free Zoom account (and download their software). Thanks.
