The Nik Collection by DXO has become a firm favorite amongst creative photographers. Plugins such as Color Efex Pro is an incredibly powerful tool for applying complex colour effects while HDR Efex Pro is the go-to choice for many photographers looking to blend multiple exposures for superior highlight and shadow detail. 

Of all the Nik Plugins, black and white conversion software Silver Efex Pro is arguably one of the most popular and with a recent update is now more flexible than ever. DXO has added 10 new film presets to the suite, having selected these carefully for their iconic status historically and based on their popularity during the days of analogue photography.
