I have had the entire Nik Products Suite for several years now and admittedly have a love-hate relationship with the software. Yes, it can do neat things - but on the other hand, it's time consuming (NOT a time saver) and so you have to ask yourself it is really is worth it for the massive time sink in your workflow.

First, 3.0 cleared up nearly all the program-crashing bugs that plagued a lot of Nik's software with Photoshop and version 2.0. The program runs cleanly when invoked and very rarely has it crashed on me. That stability is important: if Nik crashes, so too does your Photoshop. You will lose all work done to that point.

What Nik does is bring some creative effects to the table. The default of the effects (you can download a free demo to try them) always starts to strong. But you can create your own presets within the interface so you can always achieve consistent color effects. That's important since the program goes back to default settings once Photoshop is closed. But with effects from the ever-popular Bleach Bypass, Cross Processing, and color toning, there is a lot to like here. As well, you can control clipping in the lights and darks with many of the effects (or, if you have copious amounts of time, fiddle with the vaunted U-Control points).

So, in all, what it does, it does well. But here's the problem: this program is expensive AND a HUGE time sink. If you don't mind spending 10-20 minutes on each image you create (i.e., you do NOT have a life and don't mind sitting in front of the computer all day/night), this program will give you great images! But most of us, especially those with professional portrait studios, don't have the time. Honestly, almost all of Color Efex effects can be done in LR if you unlock the right combination.

Verified Purchase
From the moment I downloaded the trial version from their website, I was hooked. Sure, you could probably duplicate these effects in Photoshop, but with this product it's done in seconds - and it's a lot more fun too. I was surprised by how powerful this tool is, and how easy it is to use. Sure, I was skeptical at first, and didn't think I was going to like this tool . . but I do. I was addicted and HAD to buy it as soon as my trial period expired.

Oh, and if you've notice noise in your images, try Dfine® 2.0. It works like magic.

This plug-in suite lets you be so much more creative with photoshop or photoshop elements. It adds ease to retouching photos that will save you time. Love the U-point technology that lets you selectively apply the filter. Great product
