  • Conclusion: I’ve been a huge fan of Silver Efex Pro from the beginning and appreciate all the updates and enhancements that Nik has made in Silver Efex Pro 2—Nik really has moved forward with version 2.0, from under-the-hood to the wide-ranging feature additions. The plug-in remains intuitively easy to use, even though some terms and adjustment options might require experimentation for first-time users to gain a full understanding of what each one does.

Nik Software Silver Efex Pro 2: This Monochrome Conversion Software Just Got Better

  • Excerpt: Within Silver Efex Pro 2 you can stylize your converted images by choosingclassic darkroom-inspired tints and toners from “Finishing Adjustments,” including the obvious sepia and split-toning effects, along with the not-so-obvious selenium or copper—my favorites—as well as cyanotype, ambrotype, and others. You can also create user-defined tints and toners to produce your own unique look and even adjust the digital equivalent of silver and paper hues.
