      Was quite a surprise hearing the news. I guess Snapseed is a great fit for the mobile apps business/Google+ but hope they keep the PS plug-ins business going.

      That's news to me, Thomas! Somehow missed it in the filtering of my news inputs. All the best to you! Steve

      WHat is your opinion on that Thomas? I am terrified of the thought of Google only buying it for Snapseed and closing the doors on the desktop apps like Silver Efex. I'd be VERY saddened to see Silver Efex and Vivezza discontinued. :(

      not sure I like that at all.....They bought Sketchup years ago which I use all the time and it's development languished....it was like they bought it to serve their own agenda for populating Google Earth with buildings by dimwits who would build free models for it ....it has since been resold and I'm hoping the new company will be more responsive to the needs of people who actually use it professionally....why Google would want NIK...I'm having a hard time putting that one together...are they going to make a bunch of their tools free for public usage to get people to buy into Google+ as THEE photo sharing site in a bid to flank Facebook and Flickr?

      Hi Thomas,
      just a question about nik software... if you use it...
      I'm an aperture user and I'm very interesting in that plugin, but is there inside a function in order to insert text?
      Now using border fx, and inserting a text box I could did it, but if I'm going to buy NIK I don't want to use it no more...
