In a previous post, since Google dropped Snapseed on Windows and OsX, I questioned the future of Nik softwares. We didn’t have to wait long to see what Google made of the other tools. From a post on Google+ earlier today we got good news.
HDR Efex Pro 2, Silver Efex Pro 2, Sharpener Pro 3, Color Efex Pro 4, Viveza 2 and Dfine 2 have all been bundled together in a set of plug-ins for Photoshop, Lightroom and Aperture. The bundle costs $149. That was the price for a single software, the entire bundle costed $499. Those softwares will not be discontinued, and are now cheaper.
In the meantime, Snapseed was updated both on iOs and Android. Retrolux filters are now available on Android, and on both versions, you can adjust the size of the borders (this feature was lost in the first upgrade by Google). Today, both versions are equal.
