Your darkroom is now a Google data center

The tentacles tighten...

"We think everyone should be able to make beautiful photos, so today we’re launching a set of initiatives aimed at improving your photos automatically — basically your camera, plus Google’s cloud."

Interesting (and not a little disturbing).

Thanks, all fixed.

I wonder if Nik technology figures into this?

Well, in the text they say that this project is one of the reasons why Google invested on Nik, so I will say yes, they are probably using Nik tech in the background...

Not sure how relevant that article is to this audience as it assumes the only 'camera' you own is your phone.

Aside from the camera issue, LuLa members surely use Nik software and privacy rights affect every photographer.
