I got the e-mailed notification from Nik this morning about the launch of the new HDR Efex Pro2.
However, it does not yet seem to be available in Europe and Nik will not supply (even the download) direct to EU addresses.
I have downloaded the 15-day trial and it looks to be a significant improvement, especially in terms of getting "realistic" HDR results.
Does anyone know of a way of purchasing the software (or at least the product key to activate the trial) legally from UK/EU?

From the UK site i've got all the way to confirming the order with my UK postal address (including german vat) - i'm not buying yet but its one credit card click away.
What UK site, Jack?
When I click on the link that looks like it might take me to a UK site, it just gives me a listing of retailers, none of whom have it in stock yet.
You may have found something that has eluded me.
Here (though 1st time i had to select UK not us)
then did the HDR Efex Pro 2 icon button mid way down the screen.
that 2nd link has a cookie id so you may need to click your own..
That did it Stuart.
And nice to find an upgrade at €49.99. Makes it a wee bit cheaper than ££s but still more expensive than $$s.
All fixed now. Thanks Stuart.
Hi, Don't want to hijack this OP but can anyone tell me why there is such a huge price difference between the USA and outside USA?
On going to the link given above by Stuart it tells me the cost is £99.95 this equates to approx $156.50
more than a 50% increase as the USA NIK site states $99.95.
It surly cannot be for tax!!!
A lot of it is tax.
By law, retail prices in UK (and rest of EU) are shown inclusive of VAT which, in Britain, is a horrible 20% (even worse in Ireland).
In contrast, the prices you see advertised in USA - whether on websites, in catalogues or on tickets in shop windows are always without tax and you have to add sales tax (which varies from state to state) to those prices.
Usually, when you take that into account, the Rip-off Britain effect is not quite as bad as it first appears.

Sidetracking a little, recently I discovered SNS-HDR, which unlike other HDR software that I've fiddled with seems to produce a very usable image by default. It can even be had for free if you can live with a 'command-line only' version.
Whats a command line please ?

An alternative way of communicating with a software program to the usual user-interface, as below.
It's not as daunting as it looks, however. Once set up you can drag and drop multiple files onto a desktop icon and it'll knock out a very decent HDR image.

It's how things used to work before we had graphical interfaces. It's where rather than clicking on the screen in windows or OSx, you type commands at a prompt. For example to HDR 3 files you might select command prompt from the start menu in wondows and then type something like:
HDR file1.raw file2.raw file3.raw /p /h /i:50 /output:newfile.tiff
I just made that up as an example, but each bit is important and you have to heve the spaces and slashes in the right place.
it's a bit scary at first but once you have things working you can save them in a text file to make things quicker and automatic.

But make very, very sure that your anti-virus, anti-malware, total firewall software is bang up-to-date before experimenting with this site.
Also be aware that if you "unlock" pirated software using a crack code, you may hit real problems if you ever try to apply a legitimate upgrade to it. Step into this dishonest world and you could be consigning yourself (or, at least, your computer) to the dark side for ever.
Hi, I am not sure what StrayCat is meaning, If it is do what I sometimes do as I have a contact states side, download the trial and get someone in the USA to buy the serial and email it as a gift.
GlennH, I also have SNS-HDR Pro (Full Product) and I have to say it is worth the money and is very good at producing realistic images straight of the bat and the guy who sells it also keeps it well up-to date on a regular basis.
