Google Makes Nik Collection Free

Last week, Google announced that the Nik Collection— a suite of desktop plug-ins for advanced photographers , which it purchased from a German developer for its mobile editing app, Snapseed—has dropped in price from $499.95 to $149 to being completely free.

Since Google purchased the collection, it has grown from six to seven plug-ins, including:

  • Analog Efex Pro
  • Color Efex Pro
  • Silver Efex Pro
  • Viveza
  • HDR Efex Pro
  • Sharpener Pro
  • Dfine

All of these plug-ins work seamlessly with Photoshop, Lightroom and Aperture. With the Nik Collection, advanced editing is made simple and quick. Google also guarantees that anyone who bought the Nik Collection for $149 in 2016 will be automatically refunded.

Google doesn’t seem to have interest in adding anything more to this high-end editing software. They explained that they plan to focus their long-term investments in developing incredible photo editing tools for mobile.
