NIK software - Google give awayI love plugins for Photoshop. I don't use a lot of them, but the right plugin can make a big difference. Among the best (IMHO) and the ones I've coveted for awhile come from NIK, which Google acquired a few years back.  I didn't have $150 sitting around to pick up the bundle, but periodically looked at the package, debating about buying it. Well, imagine my delight when I found out Google is giving away the entire package of plugins!  As of March 24, 2016 NIK plugin package is now completely free.

Yes, that's me in the background doing my little happy dance. The only thing better than getting free stuff is getting top quality free stuff.  

Included in the 429mb dowload is HDR Efex Pro 2, Silver Efex Pro 2, Sharpener Pro 3, Color Efex Pro 4, Viveza 2 and Define 2. The package works with both Photoshop and Elements, but check the versions and your system before downloading.  Hop on over to Google NIK and get your Easter treat. If you purchased the plugins this year, Google will refund your money, so no worries there.

Catpaw with a pint & a typical bad haircutTime for a new look - the venerable cat on a postage stamp is now retired. As much as I loved him, it was time for a face lift - bad haircut & all.
