Silver Efex Pro by Nik Software

Silver Efex Pro by Nik Software has been updated for compatibility with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.3 and higher. The update is available now as a free download to current owners of the application. Silver Efex Pro converts photos to black & white with all controls thrown in to produce sophisticated B&W images.

Featuring Nik Software’s patented U Point technology to selectively control the tonality and contrast of the image, Silver Efex Pro includes advanced imaging algorithms to protect against unwanted artifacts, a comprehensive collection of emulated black and white film types, a variable toning selector for adding traditional toning techniques, over 20 one-click preset styles, and a state-of-the-art grain reproduction engine that help produce the highest quality black and white images possible from your color images while providing more freedom to experiment.

If you’re serious about black-and-white images – for fine art photography, for instance – its $200 price won’t matter to you. if it does, you’ll do just fine with Photoshop’s built-in tools for B&W conversion.
