Google Ends Support for Nik Collection Photo Editing Software

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

has announced that it is ceasing support for its Nik Collection software, via a note on the website that was first spotted by the folks at PetaPixel.

The is free and compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 through 10.10; Windows Vista, 7, 8; and Adobe Photoshop through CC 2015.
We have no plans to update the Collection or add new features over time. Learn more about Nik.

While unfortunate, it isn’t really surprising. I’ve always felt this was an odd choice in Google’s bouquet. Google acquired Nik Software, the developers behind Nik Collection, back in 2012 and made the download completely free back in 2015.

You can still download and use the tools available, but Google will effectively not be making any improvements or releases in the future.
