Google has agreed to acquire Nik Software, the German developer of photography app Snapseed, for an undisclosed amount. Sources close to the deal tell The Verge that while Nik Software produces all sorts of apps for photographers like Color Efex Pro and Dfine for Mac and Windows, iOS app Snapseed was the golden egg in the acquisition.Google To Acquire iOS App, Snapseed [theverge.com]

Nik Software on Monday announced on its blog that it has been acquired by Google (GOOG). The company offers a variety of photo editing software for Windows and Mac OS X computers, as well as the popular iOS app Snapseed. “For nearly 17 years, we’ve been guided by our motto, ‘photography first’, as we worked to build world class digital image editing tools,” the company wrote. “We’ve always aspired to share our passion for photography with everyone, and with Google’s support we hope to be able to help many millions more people create awesome pictures.” The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
