DxO has announced the newest Nik Collection 5 release. The familiar 8-tool suite of plugins for Photoshop and Lightroom also comes with a brand new haze reduction tool and 29 “faithfully reproduced colour film grains” for your retro editing pleasure. The plugins also all act as standalone apps outside of the Adobe ecosystem, with access to over 300 presets and an array of intuitive sliders to tweak your images.
For long-time users, you might see some big changes as the user interfaces of Nik Color Efex and Analog Efex have been rebuilt from the ground up. Of course, they will steel somewhat familiar to some of you as they’ve been redesigned to fall more in line with the recently updated Silver Efex and Viveza applications.
