Google Acquires Snapseed Developer

Very interesting: According to The Verge, Google is buying Nik Software, creators of the excellent photo-editing app Snapseed. The folks who work directly with Snapseed are moving from San Diego to Google’s Mountain View, CA headquarters to work on Google+.

I’m guessing an Android version of the app is almost completed internally, and Google will focus its efforts on offering a top-flight image editor based on Snapseed. But I also hope this doesn’t mean the iOS and Mac versions wither as a result.

[If you don’t already own my book, here’s a sample chapter that explains how to edit photos in Snapseed.]
