A Brief Guide To Silver Efex Pro 2

Before I bought Silver Efex Pro 2 my main questions were ‘What can this plug-in do that I can’t do already in Photoshop or Lightroom?’ and ‘Is it worth the money?’ I will answer these for you in this article.

What is Silver Efex Pro 2?

Silver Efex Pro 2 is a plugin that converts color photos to black and white. It extends the capabilities of Lightroom and Photoshop by giving you tools to emphasize texture, emulate film, apply toning effects and add borders.

It comes as part of a suite of seven plugins that work with Photoshop Elements, Photoshop CC and Lightroom. It’s both Mac and Windows compatible.
