For those of you who’ve never tried Nik’s software plug-ins I would highly recommend them. They are fabulous. With the right photos they are truly amazing. All I can say is don’t misuse them but for the occasional use on a particular photo they can really add that special something. In addition their Snapseed app for the Iphone is also a one-of-a-kind app. All the other copycat apps don’t compare in my opinion.

Judge for yourself. Just remember one thing though. You have to have a great photo to begin with.
