Snap it. Tweak it. Love it. Share it.
Nik Software, now a part of Google, has a serious following in the world of professional photography. Nik has made a name by creating insanely great (and yes, award-winning) technology and products for digital photography and imaging professionals. Nik has innovated everything from a portfolio of creative effects techniques to U Point technology, transforming the way photographers manage photo editing.
Snapseed, a Nik Software business, was born out of one simple idea: What if we could take the digital innovations pioneered for photography professionals and bring them to everyone – all the millions of people around the world snapping photos with their phones and digital cameras?
The Snapseed experience was born.
We launched Snapseed Mobile on the Apple iPad in June 2011, quickly followed by the Apple iPhone in August 2011. In January 2012, we moved our software onto the Mac OS and shortly after, in February, we made Snapseed available on Windows. Snapseed became available for Android devices in December 2012. We will continue to make Snapseed ubiquitous – available on virtually all major desktop and mobile platforms and more.
Our vision is to deliver a photo editing experience so fun, so easy, and so powerful that Snapseed will be the only photo editing, tweaking, sharing app you’ll want to use everywhere, every day.
