Nik Collection 3 Wins EISA 2020-21 Award for Best Photo Editing Software
I’ve just received the press release announcing the Nik Collection 3 has won the 2020-2021 EISA Photo Software award. I’ve seen other applications win EISA awards but have never known what it was. Now I know that it’s a panel of more than sixty expert magazines published in nearly 30 countries worldwide.
But I have to say what a great choice and well-done DxO for keeping and growing this great software.
To quote Jérôme Ménière, founder and CEO of DxO. “With the Nik Collection 3 by DxO, we set out to provide Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom Classic users with an even more flexible and fluid editing process. We are especially proud that EISA’s expert jury chose to recognize this major improvement to our software, which was made possible by an amazing collaboration with the Nik Collection community—a group that is continuing to grow throughout the world.”
I’m a Nik Collection 3 Fan
If I don’t sound impartial it’s because I’m a huge fan of Nik. I’ve been using the software regularly since 2008 and it’s a part of my daily photo editing. Yes, I use other applications, but the Nik Collection is central to my photo editing. It’s easy to use, very flexible and the results are incredibly good. I can achieve results like this in minutes rather than hours.
Parts of the software haven’t changed for a long time and some people (who mainly use other software) criticise it for this. Personally, I find it reassuring that what has worked well for years doesn’t need to change. It means that I can stay productive and continue to develop my skill using these tools.
I was though pleased to see that the Nik Collection 3 includes new useful features and redevelopment of some older elements, like the Nik Selective Tool in Adobe Photoshop. It was a little disappointing that the new Nik Perspective Efex plug-in wasn’t compatible with Affinity Photo, but hopefully DxO will resolve this in time.
You can download a free trial of the Nik Collection from the DxO website. I always recommend downloading a trial before making a purchase as we all have different needs and expectations of our tools.
