Well I have had Nic Collection a couple of weeks now and I must say I don't know how I ever did without it.

Dfine 2 has to be my favorite part since it is for noise reduction. Even when yoiu really don't see noise using Define just gives it a nicer look.

HDR Efex Pro 2 gives me the control for HDR that lets me not overwork the shots. Gives all the way from overcooked beyond belief to wondering if it is HDR and it is fast to do anyone of them.

Sharpener Pro 3 is great for sharpening photos and is much better than the sharpening tools in CS6.

Silver Efex Pro 2 for B&W I really have not used that much but the times I have used it I have been pleased with the results.

Each one of the ones above give you thumbnails of suggested presets that you can quickly look over and pick the one you like best. Then you have many tools to fine tune from there.

I have not used either one of the color tools, Color Efex Pro 4 or Viveza 2 to really tell you anything about it

    I think they are very good as well Don.
    I downloaded the free trial to give them a test run, I was very impressed with what they bought to my photos.
    The free trial has run out now, and I am missing having them, so will have to look at purchasing.

    You got to try Viveza ASAP!
    Once you use that, you'll probably say 'I don't know how I ever did without it'
    I think it is one of the best of the Nik collection

    So... I see this AFTER I bought LR 5? LOL

    Guess I'll give the trial version a test run and see if I feel stupid.

    Well, I just paid for the Nic Collection, I am looking forward to going back over some of my old photos and see what I can do with them.
