NIK COLLECTION 5

Nik released Collection 5 last week.
I have downloaded my new purchase and have begun to poke around.

I also watched one of their webinars yesterday – the new features look awesome!
You also get a copy of Photo Lab Essentials as part of this updated Collection!

I’m going to make my July webinar on this great updated product so I can
“show you around” the new layout and features.

Nik Collection 5: Major upgrades to Color Efex and Analog Efex, improved local adjustment technology, and a smoother user experience

The latest version of the renowned suite of eight plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop® and Lightroom Classic® also features a brand new tool to reduce haze and 29 faithfully reproduced color film grains.

Powerful and diverse, the eight plug-ins of Nik Collection 5 also function as standalone apps and offer unlimited creative potential. More than 300 presets give instant results, while intuitive sliders and DxO’s exclusive U-Point technology for local adjustments bring endless creative opportunities and the ability to refine every detail.

  • Revamped user interface for a more refined editing experience.
  • Local adjustments got even smarter thanks to U Point technology
  • Two more major boosts to Color Efex: ClearView technology to remove haze and 29 authentic color film grains
  • Nik Perspective Efex adds more than 4,300 new camera & lens combinations
  • DxO PhotoLab 5 Essential joins the party!

If you do not own a previous (paid) version, the price is $149.

CREATING YOUR OWN TEXTURES COURSE

If you haven’t joined the party, jump on in!! The course is self-paced, and you may download the videos as well as all of the PDF instructions to use at any time.

You will learn how to create your own textures and then modify them for even more textures! Use Photoshop filters, brushes, Procreate on iPad, and your smartphone to create/photograph textures, and then modify or change those textures with plug-in software, brushes, phone apps, and by blending multiple textures, using gradient maps, changing color palettes, and much more. Module 9 will contain LOTS of techniques to create textures by hand at home with free or inexpensive supplies – mostly things you’ll find around the house!

Modules 1-7 are released and people are creating some awesome new textures! Module 8 is planned to be released by the end of June, while Module 9 will be in July (was hoping for June, but this module will be HUGE and it will take me some time to record)! We already have Module 10 for Resources. AND…also included with the course are several group chats – we’ve had one so far and there will be a couple more as modules are rolled out. The first one was recorded and has been added to the Resource module for those who could not attend “live”. We also have a private Facebook group just for course participants to share creations and ideas and ask questions.

The first seven modules contain over six and a half hours of video tutorials PLUS the written PDF instructions, AND over 100 texture images!

And...in the future when I add new material or update any materials in the course, you will be able to access the new material all for the same low price (I already have some new ideas and techniques I want to add to the early modules)!

Don’t wait…the base price will be increasing once the last Module is released!

Come join us!

  1. Hi, Hazel,

    Hope you are doing well. I’ve been considering upgrading Nik from 4 to 5. I did watch an update on Youtube and it looks like a fairly large upgrade. I especially like that we can do some edits while staying in PhotoShop. If I upgrade, I will use your affiliate link and I was wondering if you also have a discount code associated with your link. I don’t use it that often and I already have 4 and DXO which I never use, so that’s kind of my dilemma. I wish I knew more about using the adjustment points to hone into specific areas of a photo. Will you be covering that in your overview?

    Thanks for your input, Hazel,

    Karen

    1. Hi Karen,
      I normally don’t do every upgrade to programs, but Nik has been doing great things with each update!! I got mine last week for the upgrade price (they don’t give affiliates free products!). They also don’t give out discount codes. You can use my link (helps me with a small commission), and then log in to your account to get the $79 upgrade price. Yes, I will be covering more about Upoints in the webinar as those have changed a bit as well. I do like what I’ve seen so far with the new update.
      Thanks,
      Hazel
