You may have forgotten (or not known) that
Google software is updated automatically
You have no choice nor control over it
(without fairly extreme steps)
This includes the popular Nik Collection
Below is an update on how this update process works
But first, an off-topic food photo item
I’m definitely not a food photographer
I’m on an Atkins style diet
Everyday is an adventure trying to make something that complies
Romaine lettuce, tomato & mozzarella
Olive oil & Balsamic vinegar dressing
It’s almost carb free
Q. – Does that image have any connection to Nik Software, Ed?
A. – I grabbed my phone just before sitting down to my brunch
Took this next photo and
Processed it 100% in Nik’s Snapseed to get the one above
It’s a shame Snapseed for desktops no longer exists
For most web images, it’s all of the post-processing needed
Doing this on my Android phone makes my brain hurt
Back to our regularly scheduled program….
As a result of Adobe’s recent change from
Selling to Renting their products
Many users may be investigating Photoshop alternatives.
If that includes you, and
You use the new Nik Collection software
The following Q & A may interest you.
It’s useful info in any regard as it explains the method for Google’s auto-update
(which in its own way – like Adobe’s recent change – upset lots of users)
User Question – I just downloaded the Beta version of Lightroom 5 and wanted to re-install the Nik collection to make it available in LR. But I only had the installation software for version 1.05. How long will it take for Google to recognize the change from 1.07 to 1.05 and perform the upgrade?
[One thing many users forget is thatPrograms, like PS, that use Nik plug-insMust be closed before the update can occur. Ed].As you can see from the Google Answer above,It’s hard to tell when within a 24 hour windowThe an update might occur.And this assumes you know when an update is due|neededWhat’s wrong with allowing user’s to check andUpdate on their own schedule??.The auto-update process is a bit of a pain-in-the-butt
