This course is a little different to many of the other photography courses on the market for a few reasons:
To follow the entire course, you will need Lightroom and The Nik Collection (Viveza and Color Efex Pro). If you don’t have The Nik Collection, you can still obtain a free (unsupported) version by contacting DxO which now owns the software. Here’s the link to the page you will need.
It is possible that DxO will withdraw this download in the future. If this happens, consider using the 30-day free trial of the software.
The other software editing tool used in the video and book is Photoshop. This is used because of its Smart Filter feature. Don’t worry if you only have Lightroom, The Nik Collection can still be used from Lightroom.
Once you’re ready, let’s get started by downloading the course book and image file.
