If you find Instagram editing tools simple and basic, you’ve probably turned to a more professional editing app such as Snapseed. Nik developed it, under Google “supervision”, as they did with Photoshop plugins for black and white conversions or for emulating film photography. Now, Google (the company that bought Nik) is putting at your disposal all those $150 tools for free.
Silver Efex Pro, Analog Efex Pro and others like Color Efex Pro, Viveza, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro and Dfine are now available for download and unlimited use without pay. If the price was a factor before, now you have no excuse for poor editing or lack of time to experiment with #fotomagic and get better at your craft. Of course, if this is a way of telling customers they will never upgrade the plugins again… we are not gonna paint the town red.
For now though, the chance to play with them all is at your fingertips. Download them from here and… happy editing!
