I’m fortunate enough to be doing some early testing of Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro 2 and 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!
I’m a huge fan of this product so you’ll be hearing a glowing review when the time comes, but in the meantime I’m holding back while I wait for the final version before I can provide a fair review of what you will be using.
Unless something goes drastically wrong, my recommendation is going to be get it without reservation. For those who currently own Silver Efex Pro v1, I’m sad to say that you’ll definitely want to upgrade because this version does everything you are used to – but better, and offers more flexibility to do things that just weren’t possible in the last release.
Check out my announcement article to learn more details about this release plus a special offer that tells you how you can get this killer product for only $84.95!
