The 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!
