Most of the innovations received such instruments as Viveza and Silver Efex.
Performance improvements for Nik Silver Efex U Point technology resulting in more responsive breakpoints and settings.
The U-Point local correction tool has been updated, and a new set of presets has also appeared.
The U-Point local correction tool in the new version of the software works more accurately – this is a more advanced version of the tool compared to the 3rd version.

This tool has been updated with fewer sliders, which DxO says makes it easier to work with adjustments.
The total number of ready-made unique presets in the total number of plugins is more than 250 pieces:
10 of them are new for Viveza and 39 for Silver Efex.

It does this more gently than Lightroom’s Dehaze tool.
