Default B&W Plugin

Can anyone recommend a good B&W plugin for Photoshop CC? I used Silver Efex Pro 2 with CS6, but I just switched to CC 2017 and the Nik Suite doesn't seem to work with CC

Thanks!!

Do you have the stand-alone version of Silver Efex Pro 2? Not quite as convenient, but you then don't have to worry about compatibility with your parent program. Photoshop also has some serious B&W conversion capabilities of its own, including Channel Mixer.

By the way, I also have Silver Efex Pro 2, but never saw fit to use it until just now.

That's interesting, because my version seems to work. Have you tried going back to the download site (download is now free), downloading and reinstalling the product? Uninstall first though.

I am able to use the free version of Silver effects from google with Photoshop CC, with the exception of the brush tool which, at least for me, seems to only work with some versions of CC and not for others.

Look at the Topaz Labs filters.
