Robust tools and innovative technologies form the backbone of Nik Collection

U Point™ technology: Intelligent and intuitive local adjustments

Place Control Points with a click of the mouse and make targeted changes with ease

Fine-tune the impact of each Control Point by tweaking its sensitivity to local color and brightness

Make a series of smart adjustments with Control Points that combine intelligently with one another


Introducing Control Lines for intelligent gradients

New to Nik Collection 6 is a new U Point™ tool: Control Lines. These have all the functionality of a graduated filter but with all of the intelligence, ease of use, and magic of Control Lines.


U Point™ gets two awesome upgrades

Nik Collection 6 also pushes U Point™ technology that little bit further. You can now diffuse the impact of a Control Point, and both Control Points and the new Control Lines can be inverted, giving you greater flexibility when combining local adjustments together.

One powerful tool, loads of different uses

U Point™ has a ton of different uses depending on what you want to achieve. For example, use it to target the impact of your presets in Nik Color Efex, then control hue, brightness, and contrast in Nik Viveza.

Then, adjust exposure in Nik HDR Efex, reduce noise with Nik Dfine, and optimize crispness 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.


Remove atmospheric haze, fog, and mist using ClearView, intelligent technology that has crossed over from DxO PhotoLab.
