Google Nik Collection doesn't create desktop shortcuts or entries in your Programs list. Instead, you'll find the programs in C:\Program Files\Google\Nik Collection.

It's hard to believe such an incredible set of editing tools is completely free. If you have Photoshop you can install them as plugins, but you can also use them as standalone programs. Brilliant!

Analog Efex (retro filters and effects)

Color Efex (hue and tone adjustments)

Silver Efex (monochrome conversion)

Dfine (noise removal)

Why you need Google Nik Collection

Google Nik Collection's filters give incredible results, and are far superior to the options you'll find in other free photo editing software.

The apps support batch processing, and as well as dozens of great-looking presets, each one includes a set of sliders that let you fine-tune colours, contrast, noise, vignette effects and much more.

With such a powerful array of professional-quality tools at your disposal it's easy to make ordinary photos look great, and good photos look stunning. Download Google Nik Collection now and see for yourself.


How to install Google Nik Collection

Note that Google Nik Collection won't appear in your Programs list once it's installed. Instead you'll need to open Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\\Program Files\Google\Nik Collection. Once you're there, all the filters are easy to use, and you can create your own desktop shortcuts for quick access in the future.
