Nik’s Silver Efex Pro Now Compatible with Lightroom

Silver Efex ProThe folks at Nik Software sure have been busy! They announced Wednesday that Silver Efex Pro, their popular Black and White conversion filter is now available for Lightroom 2 and that the update is free to current owners.

Silver Efex Pro installs as a plug-in filter for Lightroom 2 and is accessible from the Photo>Edit In… menu. Edits made using the plug-in within Lightroom are non-destructive in nature, and are applied automatically to a newly generated TIFF and not the original RAW file.

Nik Software also said that they plan to make all their other Photoshop plug-ins including Dfine and Sharpener Pro compatible with Lightroom later this year. Good news for those of us using these wonderful plug-ins!

    • Hey Michael!

      I’m really interested in Dfine. I currently use Noise Ninja but Nik’s control point technology could really help in both sharpening and noise reduction. I’d love to have more control over where noise reduction is applied for example. Hopefully these two will be completed soon.
