Analog, Color, Dfine, Silver, Viveza
Except for Dfine I have had no trouble working with 16-bit-colours.
There's python script (shellout for gimp) that can integrate the Nik programs into the gimp workflow. Color and Viveza don't work for me that way (but standalone they are fine). I don't know why.
What does not
Saving the pictures can go wrong, in which case I've often had success by converting from, say, jpg to png. Tip: once the picture is loaded, save immediately to see if it works. Otherwise you might lose a lot of work.
What was not tested
HDR, Presharpener (Part of Dfine)
