Google Picks Up German Photo Outfit Nik Software, Maker of Snapseed

Google on Monday acquired Nik Software, the 16-year-old German software company behind the popular Snapseed iOS photo application. Snapseed is akin to Facebook’s Instagram, with heavy use of filters and photo manipulation.

Terms of the deal — namely, the acquisition price — were not disclosed.
