Re: Free Nik software collection

Thanks for the heads up just got an email from Google with a link to download the whole suite for free, can you believe now thats what I call outstanding customer service. Nik software are probably one of the best plugins out there and whats more all future upgrades are free too

I know its cold outside but I think Xmas just came early. Well done Google

It always happens to me!

I bought HDR Efex 2 last week at full price (less a 15%voucher). Bugger.

Should get the suite for free. Register the software if you haven't already done so and check the Nik website.

I think I saw that if you bought after 22Feb you will get a full refund as well as the full suite. Register then email them.

Re: Free Nik software collection

Downloaded the other elements of the suite for free, so I'm not complaining. Silver Efex is highly rated as a B&W tool, so I shall enjoy having a play with that.
Problem is I think I now need a more powerful laptop!

Re: Free Nik software collection

I recently bought Silver Efix and got an email but it went into trash with all the links stripped out. I can't find where to download the full suite except as a 15 day trial now. Should I have an activation code?

I've had all the versions of Color Efex Pro since 2007, but no email!

I received an email from Google indicating that as an existing registered user of Nik software (HDR Pro in my case) I was eligible for a free download of the full set. I simply clicked on the download button, installed as usual and that was all there was to it.

Re: Free Nik software collection

After sending an email with my product number, I received a reply with a download link.

Wasn't expecting a reply over the bank holiday weekend, made up for not getting a mail in the first place.
