Default Free NIK Bundle

I saw an article in this month's Popular Photography that if you purchased any NIK product in the last five years Google would provide a free upgrade to the NIK bundle (sans the HDR package). Since I was an owner of Effex Pro 3 I contacted them and within minutes I had the complete bundle.
Although I am a Topaz Labs user it doesn't hurt to have a back-up especially a free one.

Wow, they were pretty specific with me that it didn't include the HDR. Were you an HDR holder previously? Good on you!!

Got mine, including HDR, it's great! I also have OnOne PerfectPhoto Suite 6.2 and Topaz Clarity & DeNoise. Love them all!

I would take a look in the folder where you put the download of the software. I just did and HDR efx Pro 2 is there. What is interesting is that it does not appear in the selection within Photo Shop elements. Will have to do some investigation.

OK found out you have to use the export function within lightroom for HDR EFX pro to be used. Well I did that and nothing, nada. Cannot get it to come up. Don't know what I am doing wrong. Frustrated I downloaded Photomatix and it installed with out a hiccup and I already produced my first hdr. Nothing spectacular but it worked.

Sorry Chestmaster but I don't have one. It was in the June issue of Popular Photography.

Just go to Nik software.com. It is there. Also the suite includes HDR. I was having a problem with it but called tech support. Had to do with permissions in my Adobe, and lightroom but they walked me through it. Had to re download but not problem. Did this today.
