Nik Software - Awesome or What?

Postby Paul Robertshaw » Wed Jan 16, 2013 8:31 pm

So, in early December I bought Color Efex Pro 4 at the retail price of $199.95.

In January I bought Silver Efex Pro 2 again at the retail price of $199.95.

After reading Barry's comments about the full collection, I realised that with only another $100 outlay, I could have had the lot - silly me. Anyway, I emailed them asking if there was a cheaper way that I could upgrade and they are/were bloody fantastic. They worked out a deal where they basically refunded my money on both packages (even though the first was well out of the 30-days returns period), gave me a toll-free number to ring their US customer services, and then gave me another $50 discount.

Bloody amazing service, and that's why the likes of Jesspos could never compete with online people who care about their customers.

I wholeheartedly recomend Nik Software, and the software itself is fabulous as well.

Happy Paulie :D

You're right there, Barry! :)

Incidently, I have downloaded all of the Nik Software tutorial videos that I could get yesterday, including all 55 "55 filters in 52 weeks" 5 minute tutorials on each of the Color Efex Pro 4 Complete filters. The quality is not brilliant as they are lo-res FLV files, but they are perfectly good to see what is going on. I have been watching them on a 50" plasma over Apple TV, and they are fine.

I have got them all in original *.FLV format, and have converted them all into h.264 format so that they can be used on an iPad. They are a couple of gigabytes in size, so if you (or anyone else) want them, drop me a PM with your address and I'll get them to you.

I was having a bit of a noodle at some old pics in my Lightroom catalogue. Thought I'd revisit a couple from a few years ago.

Here's one of Burnham beach..
