This might be of interest for those who like to experiment with images:

https://www.google.com/nikcollection/

They're free now but were around 100 last year.

I think that they're superb - well worth the price  ;D :D ;D

 I bought mine a while ago but I have now got the free versions on 3 other machines  ;D Not sure why Google decided to give it away.

I've just been sorting out my Topaz collection now that I've updated PS CC to the the  2015.5 version. It has to be re-downloaded and installed to a different folder!

Good aren't they, Tommy.  Silver Efex  can keep me playing for hours  ;D

Also, Vivaza is great for just adjusting specific areas of an image.

I'll be  using it a lot, that's for sure. It's the first time I've found a plugin that works with PSE9 too. I told Carol about it, she has PSE9 also.  Thanks again.   , Tommy  :)

Does Nik work 'on its own' or does it need to be run through a program like Adobe elements  (as a plug in)?

Thanks....
