I use it. Love it! The things you can do with it are phenomenal and has allowed me to create images I would not have dreamed of creating. The program is easy to use and certainly allows one to experiment with your images. My avatar image was run through it.

Nik Color Efex's black and white conversion is as good as silver efex and you get many other good adjustments and can make way better images both color and bw.

I use it a lot, but most of it can be done in Photoshop.But I like having all the controls nearby eachother. I use it to get more "character" or drama in portraits.
Heres an image, 1 of 120 portraits that I took of local people here where I live.

I have the Nik package that includes Silver Efex, Dfine, Sharpener Pro, Viveza and some other plug-ins and, though I love it and it's fun to play with, I rarely end up using any of them when all is said and done.

All the time...once you get proficient with it and start using the U point controls it becomes amazing...

I have yet to try it...
I'm curious, how well does it work for batch processing a large volume of images, such as in Lightroom.
What I am considering is taking modern-day event images and trying to batch process to resemble a vintage BW film type and help the images look older.

It's the same principle as adjustment brushes in Lightroom. Using it allows you to selectively edit specific areas of the image. You attach a U-Point control to s spot on your image, then use the sliders to adjust the characteristics of that area.

All my B/W's here are done in Silver Efex. Don't leave home without it.
