Former film photographers will appreciate the 18 different film types available, along with the ability to adjust the amount of grain, tone and sensitivity. You can also select a specific color filter and then adjust for hue and strength to control the finer details. Silver Efex Pro gives you options for vignetting, toning, and burning the edges. For a die hard black-and-white photographer that does not want to get into complicated controls Silver Efex Pro is a great compromise and gives you a preview of all of your changes before you make your final decision. As with most of the Nik Software programs certain features work differently in Apple's Aperture than in Adobe's Photoshop. See Nik Software's site for more detailed information into the features and how to best use them. This is a plug-in that will get a lot of use from anyone who appreciates the fine nuances of black-and-white photography. Silver Efex Pro is available from Nik Software for $199.
