Nik Collection 4.1 released, discount price extended
July 6, 2021
Recently we covered the launch of the Nik Collection 4, which developer DxO claims is the biggest update to the editing suite for a decade.
Highlights include enhancements to the software’s U-point technology for making precise local adjustments without having to build complex masks, along with the ability to group together control points and include them in presets – making it easier to apply the same adjustments to multiple images.
DxO has now announced the immediate release of version 4.1 of the Nik Collection, which features a new rendering engine optimised for Nik Viveza and Nik Silver Efex. This new version improves the following:
- Overall responsiveness of the interface and option to preview the effects applied to the image, whether in fit or fill mode or zoomed in.
- Significant improvement to U Point technology resulting in more responsive Control Points and adjustments.
- Better support for very high-resolution images.
- Bug fixes and other improvements to the software’s user-friendliness.
“Fewer than four weeks after the launch of the 4.0 version, we wanted to provide our community with an optimised version of the Nik Collection,” explains Jean-Marc Alexia, Vice President Product Strategy. “To give everyone plenty of time to test it out for themselves, the 30-day trial period was reset.” In other words, people who already downloaded the 30-day free trial version can get it again for another 30 days.
Nik Collection 4.1 is now available for download from the DxO website. The special launch price (£88.99 instead of £133, and £54.99 instead of £69 for the upgrade) has been extended to July 31, 2021.
