Google Buys Nik Software - Promises to Continue Producing High-End Photography Tools

When it was announced last week that Google acquired Nik Software, the focus was on a mobile photo editing app named Snapseed. Photography enthusiasts probably know NIK better for something else though - high-end photo editing tools and plug-ins.

There wasn't too much news on just what would be happening to this side of the company's offerings, but Google VP Vic Gundotra finally came out with some information that will certainly please fans of Nik. "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, and we care deeply about their artistry." Gundotra goes on to pledge that they'll keep a photography focus moving forward.
