Main idea here is that you can use Nik Plugins stand-alone without officially supported 3rd party host application (Lightroom, Photoshop, Spark, Portfolio). On Windows or Linux.

Source code can be compiled natively for Linux or for Windows with Lazarus IDE.

The program is dedicated to Ubuntu users, where you can install Nik Collection using wine. On Ubuntu you can either use native Linux version, or native Windows version running via wine. In fact, currently the latter is recommended, because there are some UI glitches related to gtk widgetset if you compile for Linux - the UI looks better in native Windows version (this can be fixed in the future).

Even if you use native Windows version on Linux via wine, the app will be aware of wine and will still be integrated with your Ubuntu desktop and will be integrated with supported apps on it, like Gimp, Pinta, Darktable, Nautilus, etc. It will still talk to your shell, and provide all the integration with your Linux.


  • use Nik Collection stand-alone without host photo editor on Windows or Linux
  • manage history of changes of your photo (versions)
  • send versions of your photo to 3rd party photo editors on Linux (Gimp, Pinta, Darktable)
  • locate file on disk using your linux file manager (nautilus, thunar, caja)
  • automatically open Gimp and paste currently viewed photo into it via clipboard (only on linux)
