Nik Software has been purchased by Google. I'm sure they will be integrating the software throughout Google's tool set for Picasa, Google+ and more.
But they didn't destroy Nik Software apps. You can still access the tools and they have now bundled them all together for $150. I already owned HDR Efex Pro 2.
Because I already owned HDR Efex 2, Google sent me the full suite after the acquisition.
This is great because to get all of the Nik Software apps before would of cost over $400. So Google brought the price down. Awesome!
