I'm looking seriously at Viveza right now, but wondered if anyone was using any of the NIK products and what you think about them?

Nik Dfine is pretty good. I posted some images, including a side by side comparison of an ISO 12800 image with and without Dfine here.

I've been playing with the trial version. It works great, but I'm looking at some of their other software as well. I can't afford to buy it all at once.

There are probably many reason's you are interested in this, but if it's mainly color and contrast control, look here. FM Software
The velvia vision may do most of what you want and free up some coin for the other NIK products that have caught your eye.

Hey Harry, I just got it and got a PPA discount of 15%. Came out to $127.+. Haven't had a chance to play with it. You can get the code from the PPA site.

I use Viveza, Silver Efex Pro and Color Efex Pro 3 from Nik. All are excellent. Sometimes Nik has a special on bundles but am not aware of any current ones.
