As many of you are aware Google has abandoned the Nik Collection and will no longer be updating or supporting this free software suite. It is just a matter of time before these apps stop working and many of us will be scrambling for replacements, but one of them may already be here. For those of you who enjoy using NIK HDR Efex Pro 2 an alternative is about to be released for Windows and Mac called Aurora HDR 2018.
Brought to you by the makers of Macphun and Co-developed with Trey Ratcliff this release is poised to be a robust HDR application as Trey is one of, if not the top, HDR photographers out there. Per ordering now will save you 64% off the regular price. At $89 bucks it is tough to pass up.
