U Point technology
Nik Software's U Point technology provides easy-to-use tools for direct on-image control of filter effects and enhancements. Applying filters to specific areas of a photo can be achieved easily using just a few mouse clicks without the need to create complicated selections, masks, and layers. Color Efex Pro combined with U Point technology offers users unprecedented control over selective image enhancements and effects. "Color Efex Pro 3.0 is the biggest advancement in the way photographers work with digital photographic filters and will change the way that photographers edit images," said Michael J. Slater, CEO of Nik Software. "We have always been committed to placing creative control in the hands of photographers and the new filters in Color Efex Pro 3.0 and our U Point technology does exactly that," Slater concluded.

U Point powered Control Points
Using U Point powered Control Points, users can make selective corrections or enhancements by placing a Control Point directly on any part of an image (such as sky, skin, grass, or a building) and adjusting the level of opacity of the effect on that specific part of the image. This selective control enables users to perform enhancements in a fraction of the time needed using other software tools. U Point technology is also found in Nik Software's Dfine 2.0 noise reduction tool and Capture NX photo editing software from Nikon Corporation.

Nik Software Color Efex Pro
"I have been using Color Efex Pro for over seven years and each and every one of my images is touched by this software. Every time a new version is released I am always amazed at how Nik Software continues to advance and improve its products and technologies," said Vincent Versace, professional photographer. Available in three editions, the Color Efex Pro Complete Edition features over 250 distinctive effects and styles in over 50 easy-to-use filters, and includes more than 30 emulated film types. New and updated filters in Color Efex Pro 3.0 address specific needs for varying styles of photography, ranging from studio, portrait, and commercial, to fine art and nature.
