Black and white

The weather brings a lot of the drama to this image and the new ClearView slider in Nik Silver Efex was used to draw out extra detail in the clouds, creating mood through the increased contrast. It also finds a little more clarity from the sweeping landscape in the background that was being lost to the misty conditions. Some heavy grain was then added, a characteristic of shooting on high ISO film stock.

An alternative edit was made using a filter in Nik Analog Efex to give the impression that this photo comes straight from the album of an early 20th century explorer, conjuring a sense of mountaineering’s rich history.

Nik Silver Efex

Master the art of black-and-white photography using a comprehensive set of darkroom-inspired controls and a refined interface, all designed to let you create stunning monochrome images.

One of eight powerful plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop® and Lightroom Classic® offering endless creative possibilities.

The U Point™ revolution

2005

In 2004, Nik Color Efex Pro 2.0 added Nikon Capture 4 compatibility. This marked the start of the collaboration between Nik and Nikon that resulted in the development of U Point™ technology. By creating the first system capable of making local adjustments using Control Points that could be placed directly within an image, Nik Collection revolutionized photo editing.

Robust tools and innovative technologies form the backbone of Nik Collection

U Point™ technology: Intelligent and intuitive local adjustments

One powerful tool, lots of different uses

Use U Point™ technology to target the impact of your presets in Nik Color Efex, then control hue, brightness, and contrast in Nik Viveza.

You can also use U Point to make precise local adjustments to exposure in Nik HDR Efex, noise reduction in Nik Dfine, and sharpness in Nik Sharpener.

Selective Tones for absolute precision

In addition to being able to adjust the Red, Green, Blue and Hue values when making local adjustments, U Point™ technology allows you to make changes to Highlights, Shadows, Midtones, and Blacks.

These Selective Tones give you an unprecedented level of control over specific regions of your image.


Nik Selective Tool:
Creativity is just one click away when working in Photoshop

The Nik Selective Tool is a palette integrated into Adobe Photoshop® giving you instant access to every plug-in.

Nik Collection’s powerful tools are immediately available the moment you need them.

Lightning-quick retouching

Nik Collection comes with features that make it easy to batch edit images.

Within a plug-in, use the Last Edit feature to retouch your photos in a flash by re-applying the settings from the last photo you edited.
