After working with Nik’s Silver Efex for a few more days, I am much more impressed with it. I did buy the licence after the trial expired. This is a very clever package that is capable of delivering good results with a little patience. I don’t usually rely on presets in any program and have totally ignored them here in favour of individual adjustments. The magic is in the mid tone controls with Silver Efex, in my opinion. Lightroom is a superb photo editor, but this package from Nik can take B&W conversions a little further.
