Nik Software recently announced Silver Efex Pro 2 and I have to say that I am extremely excited. Silver Efex Pro (the current version) is truly one of my favorite photography editing plugins/programs. All of my best black and white images have atleast had a pass through Silver Efex Pro and I can only imagine that Silver Efex Pro 2 will be better in every way.
Nik Software is known for the “revolutionary U Point technology that enables you to fine-tune your images with precise selective enhancements” . This feature effectively allows you to control the multiple editing variables in selective amounts throughout the image, giving a finer control over your finished images. While I am not sponsored by Nik Software nor do I make any money by posting this information, I am happy to spread the word about a solid product that I find myself utilizing on a day to day basis.
Here is a small collection of some of my favorite black and white images that Silver Efex Pro helped me create.
