A lot of Google’s awesome software is free, and the company made a lot of photographers happy last year when it dropped the price tag on its $150 collection of photo editing tools, the Nik Collection. Today, however, Google has revealed that it will no longer be providing updates to that suite.
“The Nik Collection 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,” the company wrote.
The rest of the Nik software, which is focused on desktop photo editing, will still be available but, with Google no longer deploying resources, future updates to the Windows, Photoshop or Mac platforms may break it in future.
