As you might know, five days ago Google announced that it had acquired Nik Software, the maker of fantastic plug-ins for Photoshop/Lightroom/Aperture. Many of us were concerned about what the future would hold for support and development of Nik products.
Yesterday Vic Gundotra posted this on Google +:
Photography first: for everyone, and for professionals
Earlier this week I proudly welcomed +Nik Software to Google. They’ve been making pictures more awesome for 17 years, and we’re excited to bring Nik’s expertise to the entire Google+ community!
I also want to make something clear: we’re going to continue offering and improving Nik’s high-end tools and plug-ins. Professionals across the globe use Nik to create the perfect moment in their photographs (e.g., http://goo.gl/aDtkO), and we care deeply about their artistry.
Together with Nik, we’ll continue to put “photography first.”
