Anne, All the original sliders are still there. Have you opened them up by clicking on the arrows? (you probably did that with the original many moons ago) if you have any problems e-mail them, they are very, very helpful. I bought just Silver Efex from Nik. A month later Google bought them, and reduced the price considerably (the whole package was about the same as Silver EFEX had been) - they gave me the whole package for free, and were extremely helpful, emailing by return.

Last month I installed the package on a Mac, no extra cost, fully unto date and all the old features there (granted took me a while to find the individual sliders - which I use all the time)

Nick, I'm really glad I posted in here - I found them, under Sensitivity - but recalled them being directly under the single color filters. I am so RELIEVED. I still must add though that the Topaz B&W software does a really good job for mono conversions also.

Thank you for the screen cap!

I think your right, it took me a while to find it - I just opened everything up one thing at a time. I've not tried Topaz, and to be honest I'm thinking of going back to how I did monos a couple of years back - which was all photoshop, but using channels.

That's what I also did years ago, before i even had Lightroom.

I have Nik Silver Efex. It helped when I used to started to edit images to b&w from Lightroom. Now, after many years I use Photoshop (and Capture One) to a high standard I can get the desired result there for example here .

Great way to learn though.
