I’ve always been curious to see how Nik Software’s premier black and white plug-in, Silver Efex Pro, stacks up against Photoshop’s Black & White adjustment layer. In today’s Workbench, we’ll take both of these tools out for a test drive to determine which one produces the most impressive results with the least amount of work.
If you wind up loving Silver Efex Pro as much as I do, you’ll be happy to know that I’ve arranged a 15% discount for my audience. Pay a visit to the Discounts page on my site and click through any of the Nik links. To receive the discount, be sure to enter the code “msjphoto” during checkout.

Since this Workbench focuses on comparing Silver Efex Pro to Photoshop’s Black & White adjustment layer, I’ve reserved the next installment of the Workbench for crawling under the hood and really exploring Silver Efex Pro.
