Silver Efex Pro 2 is probably the most well-known black and white photo editing tool available on today's market.
Silver Efex Pro 2 is a powerful photo editor that allows you to play with your images and modify their appearance in a large number of ways. Yes, the option to apply black and white filter to your photos can be found within almost any image editor, but the numerous ways in which this can be done and the quality of the final project will make the difference.

Silver Efex Pro 2 was developed for the use with Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom or with Apple Aperture so one of these two applications is mandatory for the editor's functionality. Silver Efex Pro 2 comes with a set of handy tools for editing your pictures, such as global adjustments (brightness, contrast, structure), selective adjustments (control point), color filter, film types, finishing adjustments (silver hue, silver toning and so on). But remember that Silver Efex Pro 2 will not work on images in the grayscale color mode.

The screen can be adjusted according to the user's preferences (single image view, split preview, side-by-side preview), the background color can also be changed, while the software can be updated from daily to monthly or, in need, manually.

Silver Efex Pro 2 creates stunning images within the lightning speed. Silver Efex Pro 2 is more than a tool, because it creates art, allowing you to save time and effort.
