I’m slowly switching/figuring out how to use Franzis BW Projects 5. It’s a solid product but Silver Efex still holds my heart.

And counter to the referenced article, it still works with PSCC 2017.5. You may have to install/reinstall, but it still works for me on my Windows 10 machine (64bit, no less)
