"Nearly every pro I know already uses Silver Efex Pro to create their B&W conversions, but I can tell you this: they'll all be upgrading to version 2 the minute it comes out. It's that good! Nik Software really gets the whole user experience for photographers, and you can see that attention to detail throughout Silver Efex Pro 2. When it comes to creating fine art black and white conversions, this changes everything."
— Scott Kelby, President, NAPP www.scottkelby.com
"Creating a fine art black and white photograph starts with an artistic idea — a visualization of the world we live in — followed by the shooting itself. The most challenging part is the conversion of the image to black and white. It’s a personal and creatively demanding process that cannot be restricted by tools. Silver Efex Pro 2 ensures that my end result matches all the drama, tones, and nuances that I originally had in mind. Quite simply, it gives me complete artistic freedom."
— Joel Tjintjelaar, award-winning black and white photographer. www.joeltjintjelaar.com
"I did all my black and white conversions using Silver Efex Pro and couldn't have been happier until I used Silver Efex pro 2. Nik software has improved my favorite plug-in in ways you have to see to believe. Silver Efex Pro 2 makes me want to turn all my images Black and White."
— Alan Hess, photographer and author www.alanhessphotography.com
"I’ve gotta say that my former disdain for black and white photography is completely gone. This thing rocks and lets me create some really cool effects that look cool on the screen but jaw dropping when printed on Epson Exhibition Fiber!"
— Ron Martinsen, Photographer, blogger www.ronmartblog.com
"Nik Silver Efex 2.0 puts powerful black-and-white image controls at your fingertips, letting you quickly apply the desired effects. Even better, it lets you quickly and easily compare different effects before permanently applying them, and remembers all of your settings so you can easily access and return to any step in your process. After spending a couple of weeks playing with this software, I recommend it as a must-have for any black-and-white digital darkroom."
