Re: Nik Color Efex 4 and other Nik products

I have the full Nik Suite. I primarily use Color Efex (very often Detail Extractor), Silver Efex, Output Sharpener, and HDR Efex. All except HDR Efex I typically launch as filters in CS5, rather than from LR4, since they are part of a compound workflow where I also need the power of local masking in CS5. HDR Efex is easy to launch direct from LR via the Export menu after selecting the brackets in LR you want to combine.

Thanks for taking the time to answer. Just a little hard to swallow the $499 bundle. As mentioned I have some other products. And, I do a little HDR with Photomatrix. I may just start with Color Efex 4 and look at the others one at a time based on need. I go through phases and Silver Efex may be perfect. But one at a time might be better than getting products I will never use.
