If you own any Nik Software products (such as Silver Efex Pro and HDR Efex Pro like I do), you should know that Google bought the company recently. That’s not the news though. What’s important is that you transfer your customer info over to Google if you want to get support or upgrades.
The deadline for transferring is December 7, 2012. Visit http://www.niksoftware.com/company/usa/entry.php?view=privacy/en_transferyourdata.shtml
