You should get an email on the account you registered your nik account with the subject 'Your upgrade to the new Nik Collection by Google' that has the link for MAC and WINDOWS to the whole collection.

Strange the serial number for the collection is not on my account (only the one software I own from them).

Wonder if this is a one time deal (that is, no updates in the future)??

Great deal -- we paid over $500 for all that stuff (and it was worth it at that price).

Will this work with Lightroom 4 alone or do you have to have all three items listed in their support page?

Adobe Photoshop CS4 through CS6
Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 through 11
(apart from HDR Efex Pro 2, which is not compatible with Photoshop Elements)
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 through 4

It works with all of those. And you can even use it on your desktop and laptop.

WOW. What a great price. If I hadn't bought the Topaz suite I would buy this. I think the Silver FX pro2 was $199! I will say that I am happy with the Topaz Photofx lab as it allows for Layer masks without PS. I use Aperture which doesn't offer layers.

We find Viveza and Silver Efex Pro indispensable -- they are the workhorses of our flow and I'd gladly pay $150 each for them. For denoising and some other stuff, we use Topaz.

Nik's stuff is amazing. Color Efex and Silver Efex are top notch, and I have used Viveza quite a bit, too. This deal is a no brainer! I hope this isn't a "fire sale" though. I would be very sad to see these products cease to be.

I've never used any NIK software before, but just viewed an introduction to all the plugins - this is very powerful software! At first I thought it would be too difficult to learn, but the user interface looks to be very straight forward. One huge feature I've found is the extensive amount of tutorial videos. This alone makes it well worth the price for me - 211 detailed tutorial videos - wow!

Webinars

Edit to add - here is the introduction video - 1 hour long.....but touches on each of the plugins.

Thanks for the tips, both the sale and the coupon code! I have read lots of good of the Nik software over the time. However, I'm still not sure if would be useful in my use. What plugins do you current users find most useful?

Is there any reason to get this if you already own the Topaz Suite? I'm sure some Nik software does a better job than some Topaz software (and vice-versa), but is there anything that really makes it worth it?

Except from the HDR app I use them all. Silver Efex is top notch and Color Efex has been a staple ingredient of my workflow for a long time now. I don't have any trouble with recommending them.
