The DxO Nik Collection 4 brought brand new versions of two of its plug-ins, Silver Efex Pro 3 and Viveza 3, with new features and new control systems. The speed wasn't all it might have been, though, and DxO has now released this version 4.1 update to address this.

Silver Efex Pro 3 is the latest version of one of the best-loved plug-ins in the Nik Collection, offering state of the art black and white image processing and darkroom effects. Viveza 3 is a color adjustment plug-in with sophisticated local adjustments for 'dodging and burning' color images and applying global adjustments.

The new version brings a new rendering engine for these two plug-ins and the following updates:

• 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.

DxO Nik Collection 4.1 trial and offer extension

As well as updating its software, DxO says it is resetting its 30-day trial for users who downloaded the first version so that they can get a full 30 days to try out version 4.1. It is also extending its launch offer until July 31, where users can get the Nik Collection at a special reduced price:

The DxO Nik Collection 4.1 is available now from the DxO website, and if you buy before July 31, the price for new users will be $99.99/£88.99 instead of $149/£133. If you’re upgrading from a previous version, the price will be $59.99/£54.99 before June 30, reverting to the regular price of $79/£69 afterwards.
