Back in September 2012 Google acquired the popular standalone company Nic Software. Over the years I had installed various types of it’s plug in’s on my range of computers to check it out but every time I just couldn’t justify the price they were asking per plug in, especially when I was happy with my current workflow. But now in March 2013 Google has made available the whole Nic Software plugins for $149. Now it is a case of how can I justify not to buy these plugins, given the discount is some 70% on what you would would have spent years ago.
In Nic Softwares public statement they say their looking forward to being part of Google, so lets hope they continue to invest into advancing these plugins with the quick changing advancements in photography, even though the media reported Google had it’s eyes on Nic Softwares great Snapseed phone app.
