Nik Collection by DxO For Mac Features:

Complete Collection is the most complete collection of plug-ins from Nik Software using proprietary U Point technology, which allows you to finely adjust the brightness, contrast, color saturation and other parameters of individual objects or areas of the photograph.
The set includes seven plugins: Color Efex Pro 4 and Viveza 2 for color correction of photographs, HDR Efex Pro 2 for creating photos with extended dynamic range, Sharpener Pro 3 for sharpening, Dfine 2 for reducing noise and Silver Efex Pro 2 – for creating black and white photos and Analog Efex Pro 2 – for giving photos various effects. They will give your photos the effect of being shot on an old film camera or even a photographic plate. Plugins also work as separate applications.

picAnalog Efex Pro

For those who remember classic lenses and film cameras with nostalgia.

  • Imitation of classic film
    Now you can get a picture from a classic camera without the camera itself. There are 10 ready-made tool sets available to you. You can also create your own filter using the Camera Kit feature to combine separate effects from film cameras.
  • Secrets of development techniques
    Analog Efex Pro imitates development techniques that were used in darkrooms. Apply one of the ready-made filters and then refine the details. Don’t limit your imagination: if one filter is not enough to achieve the desired result, you can use two, three or all fourteen.
  • Full control
    Use control points to add and remove individual effects without creating layers or applying masks. They can be combined with basic tools and filters that simulate scratches, light loss and photographic plates.

Crisp, professional photos that show every detail

  • Attention to detail
    Experiment with structure, local contrast and focus to highlight areas of your images and make important details stand out.
  • Selective sharpening
    Control points allow you to apply filters to areas of the image that you want to draw attention to. Transitions are automatically masked, so your photo will look completely natural.
  • Optimal print quality
    Images can be optimized for on-screen viewing, inkjet, hybrid, and halftone printing. The ideal result is achieved by automatically compensating for the loss of detail in different image output methods.

picColor Efex Pro

Color correction, retouching and special effects

  • Creativity without limits
    Choose one of the ready-made presets and give free rein to your image.
  • Room for improvisation
    Combine 55 Color Efex Pro artistic filters to get the desired result. The effects you like can then be instantly applied to other images.
  • Precise work
    Control points provide additional editing options. Apply different filters to specific areas of the image to achieve unique effects and more accurately convey the mood of the photo.

picSilver Efex Pro

The Art of Black and White Photography and Darkroom Techniques

  • Unique algorithms
    Silver Efex Pro allows you to create spectacular black and white photos using algorithms for dynamic brightness, soft contrasts, enhancing light and dark tones, as well as advanced grain settings.
  • All the tools you need
    Choose from 20 popular film types, add effects like shading or frames, and experiment with settings to get the look you want. Silver Efex Pro has all the tools you need for this.
  • Room for creativity
    Try different settings, compare results and undo unsuccessful edits at any time. Silver Efex Pro change history will help you find the best option.


Selective color and tone correction without complex masks or selections

  • Spectacular photos in no time
    Retouch the desired areas of the photo without using selection or masks. Transitions are automatically masked so your photos always look natural.
  • All the necessary tools
    Convenient sliders allow you to quickly adjust brightness, contrast and saturation, as well as adjust the lighting and tone of the photo. And the unique Structure tool helps highlight details and textures without causing unwanted defects.
  • Instant retouching
    Change the color, brightness and texture of the entire photo, and then work on the details. Viveza also allows you to work with levels and curves, providing more precise adjustments to contrast and tonality.


Noise reduction tailored to your camera

  • Full Control
    Contrast adjustment and color noise reduction are performed separately, allowing more precise control over the type and intensity of noise reduction.
  • Tailored to your camera
    Dfine automatically creates unique profiles for each image so that noise reduction is applied only to specific areas. As a result, more detail is preserved in the photo.
  • High selectivity
    Noise reduction is applied only to those areas where it is needed, and the smallest details are preserved in the pictures. Control points allow you to selectively remove color noise even without applying masks.

picHDR Efex Pro
All the benefits of HDR photography – from the right lighting to vibrant artistic effects

  • Space for creativity
    Thoughtful management tools allow you to create realistic and artistic HDR photographs.
  • Working with Details
    Bring out detail by adjusting overexposed or overly dark areas of a photo to create a more natural and balanced image.
  • Pre-processing
    A set of ready-made filters allows you to quickly improve the image, and then you can refine individual details.
