Do a good deed today!

Yes, please, do something good and support THIS PETITION to save the magnificent Google NIK Collection of photography tools!

One a commercial software that cost about 500$ and was well worth it, it was acquired by Google in 2012. They did a great job in bringing down the price to little more than 100$. Thanks Google.

Then they did still better and gave away the whole package for FREE!

That really a very noteworthy move. BUT!

There’s a BUT, and a big one! Google decided to stop supporting NIK Collection and it will either disappear or become incompatible with future versions of Lightroom or the various OS’s.

Please help us save this software, make Google see reason and divert a small amount of their considerable power to update NIK Collection!

What better way to convert photos to black and white than using Silver Efex? Just for this one it would be worth saving it.

Thanks for clicking and adding your name to the petition!

And I have developed them! These are the results fresh out of the Olympus Trip 35: Continue reading
