Nik’s Color Efex Pro Now Compatible with Lightroom

Color Efex Pro

Nik Software announced Tuesday that Color Efex Pro, their popular digital photographic plug-in filter suite is now available for Lightroom 2 and that the update is free to current owners.

Color Efex Pro installs as a plug-in filter for Lightroom 2 and is accessible from the Photo>Edit In… menu. Edits made using the plug-in within Lightroom are non-destructive in nature, and are applied automatically to a newly generated TIFF and not the original RAW file.

Nik Software also said that they plan to make all their popular Photoshop plug-ins including Silver Efex Pro, Dfine and Sharpener Pro compatible with Lightroom later this year. Good news for those of us using these wonderful plug-ins!
