    The Analog Efex Pro is being installed automatically to existing users of NIK Collection, at least on Mac. 🙂

    • I did not get a notification. I will check again.

        I went back to the old email Google sent out when they upgraded us from the individual Nik products to the Nik Collection and used the download link in there. Got the new installer with Analog Efex Pro.

          That email went out on the 25th March 2013 and subject was ”

          Your upgrade to the new Nik Collection by Google‏”

          Hope that helps.

          Agreed. That works.
          On WIN it doesn’t update automatically, in my experience. But it’s still cool that we get a free upgrade of the full collection + extension with a new tool.

        Me neither. It just has been updated to version 1.005 along with Analog Efex.

        In Windows you need to download the new version (using the same link received at the purchase) e install again.

          Not true about Windows. I noticed it when using another Nik app.

        I downloaded the newer trial version and installed that on top of the existing copy in my hard disk. (on the safe side, make sure you have a backup of the older paid-version).

    This is sad and soulless. Its like “Midi” music in the 90’s. There is a great pleasure in the process (for those who have experienced that process) that is wonderfully organic in film processing and wet plate work. I see nothing of innovation here that digital could take. Just cheesy rip offs of traditional techniques that are handmade and have value.

    Google don’t send out notifications but everyone gets it for free.

    Google/Nik are using silent updates (like Chrome) when you close the hosting application after using a plugin after an update is released. This is a bad idea (especially for working folks who really need to control the state of their machine when they’re working).

    Both Mac and Windows users seem to be having some problems (on some setups … mostly CS6 but others too) that’s crashing PS and/or causing some or all of the plugins to no longer appear.
