I just received my Lightroom 4 upgrade and what a surprise – after the installation all my Nik Software plugins dind’t work.
I check on Nik’s website and downloaded the latest versions, which is stated to support Lightroom 4, but the result was the same. The only filter that is working correctly is HDR Efex Pro. For all the rest under “Edit In” menu I get this message:
Unexpected error performing command:
bad argument #1 to ‘lower’ (string expected, got nil)
The plugins DO work with the Lightroom 4 beta, but not with the original version 4.
I sent an e-mail to Nik’s support – still waiting for answer. I’ll keep you posted of how the problem is developing.
I believe this is a situation that all of the current Lightroom and Nik’s users will experience these days after they upgrade to LR4.
Adobe just released Lightroom 4 which now supports Nikon D4, D800, D800E and has added many lenses support as well, like for the new Nikon 85mm 4/1.8G, Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, Tokina 100mm f/2.8 Macro, etc. You can order it in three different versions:
Lightroom 4 detailed specifications:
The Photoshop Lightroom 4 Software For Mac And Windows (For Sale On Web) from Adobe is a complete photo management and editing suite for Mac OS X and Windows. Ideal for enthusiasts and professionals alike, Lightroom takes a nondestructive approach to photo editing, leaving the original files unmolested. All your adjustments and edits are stored in a database and applied to an image on the fly, so that you’ll always be able to go back to the original image. This enables you to execute as many post-processing adjustments on a photo as you’d like, without making permanent changes to the original image.
