Google, who bought out Nik, have  made the full set of Pro plugins available for free

A lot of them are a bit OTT but DFine is a very good noise reduction plugin

Did you even bother opening the link or go straight into negative comment mode?

I tried the HDR plugin on some M42 data and it's good :)

Yes, I bothered - and saw nothing in what I looked at there that told me what the plug-ins were for.  As I've never heard of these plug-ins, and you made no reference in your post to what they could be used in, I asked ...

If you feel me asking for more information when the original post lacks data is "negative" then I'll stop bothering you, seeing as you're heading straight into "negative mode" yourself.

Does not really come across as asking for more information and I'm afraid it got the same reaction from me as one of my kids saying "Drink" instead of "Could I have a drink please?"

A comment phrased along the lines of "sounds interesting, I checked the link but could not find any information as to what software they plug-in with" would have got a wholly different response.

I looked at these when they were first made free and I thought that they were plugins and standalone programs. I didn't install any but watched some vids online.

I downloaded and tried.
Wish they would have been optional - so you could have installed just what you need.
500 mb is on the bloat side for just one handy tool (denoise), imo.
