DxO has announced Nik Collection 4, the latest version of its suite of user-friendly photo editing software plugins.
One of the key new features in Nik Collection 4 are Meta Presets, which are new Photoshop actions that combine the filters and settings of multiple Nik Collection plugins into one. This means that you can edit your photos and apply the effects of a series of the Collection’s presets with just one click.
Nik Collection 4 also builds on its U Point technology, which allows users to apply local adjustments without masks. In Nik 4 you can now incorporate Control Points into your personalised presets, creating your own distinct style.
U Point also adds a new Colour Tolerance setting so that users can adjust the saturation level of a specific tonal range. DxO has also made Control Points easier to use by streamlining the sliders.
In other performance enhancements, DxO has improved the user interface with more direct access to presets and filters. DxO has also made the tools more easy to identify.
Other features include improvements to Nik Silver Efex, which removes haze and enhances local contrast, and streamlining the workflow within Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. Users can now re-apply the last preset they used in a Nik Collection plugin while using Photoshop or Lightroom Classic. What’s more, a new Smart Copy & Paste function lets users selectively re-apply a plugin effect to one or more images.
