I would not worry too much about not having a CD/DVD. I do choose this option where available (e.g. Adobe) but for Topaz, it is download only. I always save downloads and back them up on one or more other disks computers so have never had a problem. Topaz has, so far, issued all upgrades free to existing licence holders. Recently when changing my computer I found that software from several CD's would not install on Windows 7 but went to the relevant web site and downloaded a W7 compatible version and still activated with the original licence number. Clearly having the CD/DVD does not always help anyway.

Interesting also in that Google made NIK an offer they couldn't refuse.

even more tempting if you are an existing Nik user - Google have just sent us e-mails offering the entire suite for free.

I suspect that it means that a major upgrade is imminent.

In fact, Whipspeed, the links in that e-mail seem to give unlimited free downloads of the entire suite - so you could forward it to your friends after downloading your own copies. Looks like a real "goodwill gesture" by Google. Refreshing change from the money-grabbing antics of some others.

Not necessarily Jeff - I seem to remember Apple dropping the price of Aperture not long back. Google are clearly of the opinion (and big enough to survive if they are wrong), that if you cut the price you will make more money in sales from more people.

I certainly didn't see any reason to buy it before as it seemed expensive for things that I would only use every now & then. But now it is so cheap I might as well buy it on the off-chance Smile
