Shellout plugin for GIMP and NIK Collection

this is the shellout python plugin properly adapted to work with NIK collection.
A specification: HDR efex pro 2 apparently does not work. It is not true at all. HDR efex pro 2 works, but it does not return the worked layer back to GIMP, as it elaborates 2 images: a base and an HDR filtered image.
There is a little trick for recovering the ‘phantom’ layer: just go to the Documents folder and search for the last modified tiff file named ShellOutTempFile_HDR. Open it and check it out… it is the lost layer. Just drag it into GIMP, it will be placed above the other levels. (In GIMP 2.8.16 you might be warned that the image you are dragging into is a 16 bit depth. Ignore it and proceed. Convert when asked for and you are done).
