I have been using Nik Software‘s Silver Efex Pro for years now. It has been the best black & white specific software forever.
Last week Google announced it’s acquisition of Nik Software. Being that Google is in so much of a photographer’s life as is, it is no surprise they picked up one of the leading photographic software providers. However, they acquired Nik Software really for Snapseed (Mac/iPad), they’re Instagram competitor with manual control.
Now, since Google acquired Nik Software, I have decided to no longer use it. Not because I have anything against Google or Nik Software, but because there is a new black & white tool coming to the industry.
I know I am excited, are you?
Gear: Leica M9, 50mm
