Default Snapseed

Nik software has a photo enhancement product that sells for $4.95, and runs on the iPhone. This is a gigantic potential market. All those phone camera users. Not to mention that they have an iPad version for the same price. From what I've read, they have nailed the Apple experience with this product. If they get enough publicity, they are going to control this market.

They also have a more expensive version for Mac and Windows that sells for $19.99. With that price point being so much lower than other products, buyers might just opt for a few less features and be satisfied with this.

Of course, this will compete with Nik's other software, not only competitors. So we will see what we will see. But people have made fortunes selling cheap products, because they sell more.

My phone only makes calls, but I do have Nik Viveza, and it's a wonderful product! I wish I could justify getting the other products too, as the interface is so good to use!

The lack of integration with PSP is the only bugbear for my POV.

Doesn't Viveza have those on-picture controls. I thought the other products didn't have those.

I think they all have "control points" - which you drop on the part you want to edit, and then adjust the slider for the size/amount of saturation/colour balance/sharpness/b-w effect or whatever.

Very intuitive!
