Google Nik Collection is a robust photo editing suite that is plugin ready for Photoshop, Lightroom, or Aperture allowing you to create professional looking images right from your desktop. This desktop graphics suite was a paid service but has recently been offered as freeware. You can use it, without breaking the bank, to bring out every aspect of your photos easily creating moods, fixing imperfections, enhancing colors and so much more. In no way shape or form would I be considered a photographer but as the testing progressed I found that this is very easy-to-use and understand - some of the pictures I was playing around with actually started to look pretty good so just imagine what a real photographer could accomplish. Any option you choose to use comes with a thumbnail example of the effect rendering for reference taking all the guess work out letting you focus on creating. Google Nik Collection is adequately packed with 7 desktop plug-ins that provide an unmatched range of photo editing capabilities that include multiple filter applications for improving color correction, image sharpening for bringing out details that may be too subtle, many retouching and creative effects as well as the ability to make on-the-spot color and tonality adjustments to any image. Being that this is now free it is worth giving a try.
