Better than Photoshop for quick results I use photoshop and Color Efex Pro. Truly, Color Efex Pro saves so much time by creating the layers for you and allowing complete control of the layers. It is worth every dollar I spent. It is also a plug-in for photoshop CS and Elements October 10, 2011
Great Filters This is a simple review. I saved a bunch of money of not having to buy a bunch of filters and then also have control point usage with Capture NX2. What a superb combo and marriage. I feel like an artist and not a hobbyist! Oh well, how about a being a hobbyist artist using my Nikon. People like my photos and this makes me feel like a Pro. If they only knew. April 23, 2011
Very useful add to Capture NX2 Color Efex Pro 3.0 for Capture NX2 is a great combination. I am sold on NIK software's ease of use and intuitive structure. NIKON please partner with NIK again and enable Capture users to take advantage of Silver Efex 2. Combining these 3 products would capture 90% of the DSLR advanced hobbiest market today.

Great effect suite it´s really a great pack of effects. very easy to use. Dynamic skin softner, Graduated filters and Pro contrast are amazing and indispensable in my bag tricks. February 17, 2011
Very nice, but not essential. Nice set of effects. We do use them from time to time. Like any effects, use sparingly and with a gentle touch. The interface is easy to use, and it is definitely fun to experiment with. December 28, 2010

Answer: 
Not with Colour Efex alone no, you need a rax convertor, ViewNX2, Capture NX2 or something similar. If you have NX2 you can use this as a plugin.

the Nikon site mentions compatibility with D5000 but not D5100. Simple omission, I guess?

Answer: 
Its not camera specific so whether its a D5000 or D3x makes no difference. It is a plugin for Photoshop, Elements and Lightroom so you need to have one or more of these for it to work.

Answer: 
Slightly wrong about not working in 64bit, it does but runs under 32bit, if you install CEP before updating NX2 then you will get a popup asking whether you want to install 32 or 64bit, hit 32 and it will work. This is of course saying that you are using Windows, if you are on a Mac then you will have to do a bit of searching to find out hw its installed on there.

Answer: 
If you are using a 64bit system then it will not work at all, however, if you have a 32bit system it can be installed but you must update CEP to the latest version, 3.003, then it will work.

I am attempting to upgrade my Color Efex 3.0 Select to the complete edition. Nik Software has discontinued this product as they are now introducing Color Efex 4.0 which is not compatible with Capture NX2. I notice that you do offer the upgrade for &99 but cannot find it listed in your store.
