Don’t Just Convert to Grayscale, Use Silver Efex Pro

Nik Software Silver Efex Pro

Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro wants to help you create powerful black-and-white images. It’s not just a matter of desaturation, or simply converting to grayscale. There’s more to B&W images than that.

Incorporating its proprietary U Point Technology into the application, the company said Silver Efex Pro provides easy-to-use tools for direct on-image control of tonality, contrast, and structure.

It uses a range of advanced imaging algorithms that protect against unwanted artifacts, a comprehensive collection of 18 emulated black-and-white film types, and a state-of-the-art grain engine that truly mimics the silver halide process and creates the highest quality black-and-white images possible from scanned or digital color photographs, the company said.

Silver Efex Pro is a plug-in for Photoshop and Aperture and is available now for $200.
