Nik Software Coupon

Nik Software Coupon

In March of 2013 Google announced that all Nik Software plug-ins would be bundled together into the Nik Collection for just $149! The bundle includes HDR Efex Pro 2, Color Efex Pro 4, Silver Efex Pro 2, Viveza 2, Sharpener Pro 3 and Dfine 2.

Note: Google has discontinued all discount coupon codes for Nik Software.

More Info About Nik Software

I also have a Nik Review up here at the site that tells you a lot more about their product with some good examples.

Nik Software is really great. I use it quite a bit and it’s amazing how powerful the suite is! It’s truly amazing and impressive. I feel like I’ve only scratched the surface of the software, and I’m already very impressed.

Here are the products that the Nik Software Coupon works for:

  • Color Efex Pro - A very cool package that comes with tons of effects. You can even do HDR-like effects with one of them.
  • Silver Efex Pro - For incredible and easy B&W conversion. Think B&W conversion sounds boring? It isn’t with this thing…
  • Sharpener Pro - Some very nice algorithms for making your photos pop
  • Viveza - Slick software for doing localized control of things like contrast and saturation.
  • DFine -Nik’s Noise Reduction software
  • HDR Efex Pro - Their HDR solution
  • Complete Collection – Note I am not reviewing this specifically, but this is a package you can get from Nik Software that includes all of the above products together as one.

I hope the Nik Coupon Code is helpful to everyone. Best of luck in your photographic endeavors!

Here are some screenies from just one of their products:

Color Efex Before
This is the before shot. It is an Argentine artist in her studio. It was shot at 70mm at f2.4.

Color Efex Pro 3.0- Tonal Contrast
The Tonal Contrast options for this shot made it a bit over-baked, but it does show off what it can do. I dialed it down for the final product.

Color Efex Pro 3.0-4
Sub options for Tonal Contrast

Color Efex Pro 3.0-2
This is a zoom-in of the Loupe for the wall texture.
You can see how the microcontrast has really made it pop.

Color Efex Pro 3.0 Glamor Glow
This is the “Glamor Glow” video. I don’t really ever use it… it is kinda that “mall shot” effect.

Photoshop brilliance before
The Original Shot right outta the camera (50mm f1.4)

Color Efex Pro 3.0 Brilliance Warmth
After Brilliance/Warmth filter with the slider slid towards the warmth side

Color Efex Pro 3.0 -HK  Tonal Contrast
Tonal Contrast is one of my favorite and can create an HDR-like effect

Indian Summer
The Indian Summer filter gives your photo a warm glow

Color Efex Pro 3.0 bleach bypass
The Bleach Bypass filter gives quite a dramatic effect. It’s not very natural, but cool nonetheless.

Color Efex Pro 3.0 film effects
Film Effects can add a nice grain and texture. You can see that I selected some Kodak film that people probably learn about in film school.

The colorize option can give the photo a nice sheen while still maintaining elements of the original color.

Crypt before
Here is the “before” shot of a strange area full of crypts in Buenos Aires

Sunshine Filter
The sunshine filter gives a strong but interesting effect

Old Photo
Here is an after version with the “Old Photo” filter turned on

Old Photo colors
Old Photo has a ton of sub-options on the right

Color Efex Pro 3.0 Tonal Contrast
Last, I’ll show another example of what is possible with “Tonal Contrast”. This is a huge solar-tracking sculpture.

The Nik Software Coupon will work for software above as well. Have fun!

  • Erik

    Thank you for the coupon code, it saved me $45!

  • Eric

    Wonderful review! I’m inspired and ready to play!! Thanks for getting me into Lucis, and now…Nik! Love it!

  • Laura

    I enjoy your reviews and really appreciate that you make discounts available to us with your reviews. I was wondering what you think of the NIK Define software?

  • Robyn Gallant

    Just thought I would let everyone know that the Stuck in Customs 15% discount netted me $100 off the total price of the Complete pkg. I did not expect that (only expected $49.99 per my calculations) but my total was only $199.99 for all 5 software. Maybe it was a glitch or maybe its for the holidays – don’t know, but pleasant surprise. Thought I would let you know in case you were looking to get more for a good price on this great software.

    Great samples – thanks
    I am test driving some Nik Software that came with my Wacom Tablet – would love to get more but can’t find the coupon code here – where did it go?

  • Trey Ratcliff

    Thanks for the note — well I am not sure – I know the “STUCKINCUSTOMS” code works on the website when checking out.

  • Bernd

    Just a note for the european (and maybe also other countries outside the US), this code doesn’t work in the european stores. There is no way to enter the code and the reply to my email was: “Der von Ihnen erwähnte Coupon Code ist leider im EU-Webshop nicht anwendbar.” (The coupon code you mentioned can’t be used in the -EU-Webshop).

  • Stephen Butterworth


    What impact do you think the new Nik HDR software will have on Photomatix? I’ve recently upgraded to CS5 and find the allure of the direct plug-in with CS5 quite irresistible. I’m sure Nik have sent you an advanced copy – what are your thoughts?



  • Stuck In Customs

    Good question – I’m still putting together my thoughts ! :) I’ll get them all together when the final thing comes out – still testing ! :)

  • Giles Pattison

    Excellent site and thanks for the HDR mistakes ebook. Is there any chance your Nik Coupons will ever be available to UK users? Nik (like Apple) already hammer us well beyond the extra VAT we pay (HDR Efex costs over £40 more even allowing for VAT). Photomatix at least allow us to use the Coupons, but render them pointless adding VAT only if the coupon is used which makes for a saving of less than a pound.

  • Adam


    How do you apply the coupon. I went to NIK`s website, added to the card, went to checkout, but couldn`t find any field to enter coupon code. Thanks

    I’ve been exploring for a little bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts on this sort of area . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this web site. Reading this info So i’m happy to convey that I’ve a very good uncanny feeling I discovered exactly what I needed. I most certainly will make sure to do not forget this web site and give it a look on a constant basis.
