Nik adds Silver Efex Pro

Nik Software on Thursday unveiled a new version to its Color Efex Pro 3.0 for Capture NX 2, while also introducing Silver Efex Pro, a new plug-in for doing black-and-white images in Photoshop and Aperture. The new Capture NX filters offer DSLR users nine new filters: Bleach Bypass, Cross Balance, Film Effects, Film Grain, Glamour Glow, High Key, Low Key, Polaroid Transfer, and Tonal Enhancer. Color Efex Pro 3 is available in Select and Complete editions for $100 and $180, respectively.

Nik cites that Silver Efex Pro offers Aperture and Photoshop users a collection of 19 emulated black-and-white film types, with the company declaring its grain engine as being "state-of-the-art", saying it "truly mimics" the silver halide process. Silver FX Pro offers the company's U Point technology, providing fine control of tonality, contrast, and structure, in a simple, clickable interface.

Through the interface, users can customize 20 preset styles - such as ambrotype or tintype - by selecting color filters, vignettes, toning, modifying brightness and other tonal ranges, among others.

Silver Efex Pro is available for $200, and comes with a sample pack of Gekko Fine Art Collection papers from Pictorico.
