From March 24, 2016, Nik Software from Google will be free for everyone. And if you purchased Nik Software in 2016, you qualify for a refund. Sounds good, right?
It does, but like many good things, this one does have a downside. Google’s decision to make the software free is tied to it’s shift in interest towards mobile photography, and so they will stop developing Nik Software. That means that it will likely stop being compatible with PS and LR as those two are upgraded. If you are presently dependent on Nik filter plugins, you will want to find an alternative soon.
If you are using a Mac computer, I suggest the creative kit from Macphun Software. The kit is comprised of six powerful photography applications and filled with unique, creative tools.
