Hopefully Silver Efex keeps going strong, but I'm afraid Google is not interested in pro software.

They are also behind Nikon's Capture NX software, and Nikon have made capital investment in them in the past too, so I wonder if Nikon and Google will start a co-operation too ?

I was not happy to read about this. I have many of Nik Software's products to "enhance" my photographs in Lightroom/Photoshop. I really do not believe Google has any interest in Lightroom/Photoshop as this software is not for the masses, but for photographers.

If you have ever dealt with Nik Software as a company you will know how friendly their customer support is and how they go out of the way to help the "photographer" community.

I have a google phone and Snapseed on my IPad. But still I do not want to edit my raw files on IPad.
