      For GIMP users, here's how to get the NIK plugins to work in the GIMP.

      First, you will need Shell Out.:

      Now add the following lines to the Shell Out python script:

      ["DFine 2", "\"C:\\Program Files\\Google\\Nik Collection\\Dfine 2\\Dfine 2 (64-Bit)\\Dfine2.exe\"", "png"],
      ["Sharpener Pro 3 pre-sharpener", "\"C:\\Program Files\\Google\\Nik Collection\\Sharpener Pro 3\\Sharpener Pro 3 (64-Bit)\\SHP3RPS.exe\"", "png"],
      ["Sharpener Pro 3", "\"C:\\Program Files\\Google\\Nik Collection\\Sharpener Pro 3\\Sharpener Pro 3 (64-Bit)\\SHP3OS.exe\"", "png"],
      ["Viveza 2", "\"C:\\Program Files\\Google\\Nik Collection\\Viveza 2\\Viveza 2 (64-Bit)\\Viveza 2.exe\"", "png"],
      ["Color Efex Pro 4", "\"C:\\Program Files\\Google\\Nik Collection\\Color Efex Pro 4\\Color Efex Pro 4 (64-Bit)\\Color Efex Pro 4.exe\"", "tif"],
      ["Analog Efex Pro 2", "\"C:\\Program Files\\Google\\Nik Collection\\Analog Efex Pro 2\\Analog Efex Pro 2 (64-Bit)\\Analog Efex Pro 2.exe\"", "tif"],
      ["HDR Efex Pro 2", "\"C:\\Program Files\\Google\\Nik Collection\\HDR Efex Pro 2\\HDR Efex Pro 2 (64-Bit)\\HDR Efex Pro 2.exe\"", "tif"],
      ["Silver Efex Pro 2", "\"C:\\Program Files\\Google\\Nik Collection\\Silver Efex Pro 2\\Silver Efex Pro 2 (64-Bit)\\Silver Efex Pro 2.exe\"", "tif"],
      Note that the 4 stand-alone capable programs only accept jpeg inputs. You can export the result as TIFs if you really need to save lossless that processed layer. Jpeg, of course, will be sent back to the GIMP when you hit the save button. The other presets are not stand-alone and they can take PNG.

        Got a little less then 24 hours. I was waiting for the Pro version (last time it was 14 home) before installing it. Had 12 Pro for a few years now, and, I'm still not un-installing it just in case some shenanigans with 14 Pro. lol

        We have talked about the graphics software "Gertrudis Pro" . For those of you that have purchased it ---- did you buy it off of their website or elsewhere? I have not found it listed anywhere but on the website. Even doesn't have it.
