Google ends support for the Nik Collection print modifying software


Google righteously took a plaudits when it done a Nik Collection print modifying program accessible for giveaway final year — stealing a product’s $149 cost tag, that was once as high as $500 — though unfortunately it looks like that pierce was a preface to a end. That’s since a internet hulk has now ceased support for a renouned desktop services from now on, according to a note on a website that was initial speckled by PetaPixel.

“The Nik Collection is giveaway and concordant with Mac OS X 10.7 by 10.10; Windows Vista, 7, 8; and Adobe Photoshop by CC 2015. We have no skeleton to refurbish a Collection or supplement new facilities over time,” a association wrote.

It’s unfortunate, though this is frequency a initial time that a earnest eccentric association has been bought by a incomparable one and eventually sealed down.

Google acquired Nik Software approach behind in 2012, so in that honour a program has had a improved run than others — cough cough Sunrise or Wunderlist, to name dual acquisitions from Microsoft as examples — nonetheless Snapseed, Nik’s flagship mobile app, continues to live on and pullulate underneath Google’s ownership.

The rest of a Nik software, that is focused on desktop print editing, will still be accessible but, with Google no longer deploying resources, destiny updates to a Windows, Photoshop or Mac platforms might mangle it in future. As PetaPixel forked out, Google might good pierce to open source a program to give loyalists some assent of mind. Those who are left, that is.
