Nik Collection: The Bell Tolls For Thee…

Don’t know if you heard, but silently in the dark of night last week, Google snuck in and snuffed out the last flickering candle of hope that many longtime users of the Nik Collection of plug-ins (for Lightroom and Photoshop) had been clinging to, when they publically announced (right at the top of their downloads page) that they would no longer support the Nik Collection or offer any updates going forward. A moment of silence for the Collection. It is officially a dead.

Today, over on my daily blog, I did a full-blown Q&A and if you’ve got a sec, it’s worth bouncing over there for all the whys and whatfors (and for what I’m using as my Nik ColorEfex Pro 4 replacement).

Here’s the link. 

BTW: Sorry, I missed out on my Friday post last week (when all this came down). I was up in NYC on business, and my wife and daughter flew up so we could catch some Broadway shows, and give our daughter her first real taste of the city that never sleeps. She loved it!!! We all did. What a great town — what a great weekend! Still glad to be back home. 🙂

Hope you all have a great Monday, and let’s pour a glass for what as perhaps the greatest collection of plug-ins, ever.
