Is this another [Deprecation] from google?

Google has chosen Google Plus, another service it many be winding down, to announce that they are now offering the well love NIK software for free downloads. These are the computer version (Mac & Windows) that function as add-ins to Lightroom, Photoshop Elements & Photoshop. Googe bought NIK a few years ago supposedly to get access to the snapseed mobile versions of NIK. They still offer snapseed as a standalone on IOS and androids apps but the snapseed like edit functions have been removed from the current offering of google photos.

This is a all little worrying given google’s history of killing off applications, It does suggest they have changed direction and supporting non on-line photo editing and management is no longer in their photo strategies. So like Picasa, the NIK software is great and if you want to be able to keep using it now is the time to download it to ensure you have the latest version.
