It seems that there’s growing concern over how long the Nik Collection will now last. Many photographers have already started to look for alternatives. Whilst I personally think this is a little soon, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared. And judging by some of the emails I’m now receiving, there is a lot of worry and confusion.
I had intended to include an article in this month’s Lenscraft newsletter to discuss some options. But on reflection, I think it’s worth me publishing the article so everyone can share. If you’re interested, here is the link to the article titled Find Your Nik Collection Alternative and Stop Worrying.
I hope you find it useful.

Thank you so much for this information! Truly appreciated ….
Thanks for the positive feedback. It seems to have gone down well.
Excellent and very useful, thanks.
A very informative article, many thanks. Alien Skin certainly looks to be a good alternative for NIK but would for me be a plugin to LR and not a replacement.
Thank you. I’m pleased to hear this was useful.
I would hate to lose Nik Efex – but once I have it, Google can’t take it away from me
True. Although whilst Google can’t take it away, Adobe could change their standards and Nik would stop working. I recall them doing this once before and it rendered a lot of plug-ins useless until the developers caught up.
That’s a worrying thought.
