RAW photo correction.

Overview

SILKYPIX Developer Studio Pro is the latest version of the SILKYPIX series, and has been developed to pursue "Higher image quality" and "Much further fulfilling functions in order to finish the photo". In this version by the improvement of RAW development engine "Color representation" and "Gradation" in highlight part have been improved significantly and "Natural sharp" which controls "Resolution and Blur" newly has been obtained. In addition, strongly requested from customer partial correction tool is equipped and it has become a digital developing software that strongly support customers' photo work.

Features
  • From dark area to highlight, RAW development engine improves the gradation further - "Color representation" and "Gradation" in highlight part have been improved significantly. This achievement was bought by the improvement of RAW development engine and implemented by further deeply analyzing the information of RAW data, therefore it achieved the extension of the dynamic range in developing processing level.
  • Partial correction tool (Equipped with Circular / Gradual correction filter) - You can correct partial color in the specified circle area. For example, partially if you want to change the brightness and white balance, you can easily specify the intuitive area and correct it. You can obtain a correction that were not available in previous SILKYPIX series by designating separate areas in scenes with much overexposure or underexposure, or when light sources give off two or more different colors in the same image.
  • Completely new sharpness from superior outline detection (Natural sharp) - Generally, when sharpness is set strong, there is one side effect that the noise is emphasized in blurry outlines or out-of-focus part of the blur. A completely new focus plane and logic for detecting out-of-focus part have been developed for SILKYPIX Developer Studio Pro7 so that you can apply strong sharpness only on the focus point.
  • L-Tone Curve for vivid high-key expressions - By correcting brightness of the tone curve with the RGB Tone Curve, colors can be reproduced with a white tinge. This is due to colors connecting to brightness during RGB processing. You can maintain colors even when changing brightness with the "L Tone Curve" installed in SILKYPIX Developer Studio Pro7's tone curve. "L" refers to "Luminance," and it is possible to adjust only luminance information with the L curve. Therefore, even with high-key finishing, the subject's tones and vividness remain. This is a convenient function for subjects who appreciate soft expressions such as in portraits.
  • Image Rating Compatibility - Some of photographers may have with a rating (typically a star mark) at the selection to OK cut to the camera side of the operation on the LCD monitor during shooting. SILKYPIX allows for linking and reflecting this "Rating" set on the camera. In addition, you can also edit the "Rating" on SILKYPIX Developer Studio Pro7.

SILKYPIX Developer Studio Pro is now 10.0.2.7 I first "met" this app when I bought a Pentax K7 as it came with the camera ; I soon gave up. Right now, as I am not outside shooting photos...I have started to compare Raw developers and image editors (LR, C1, Rawtherapee, Darktable, ACDSee, ON1, DXO PhotoLab) and added SILKYPIX to the bunch and WOW, the result is so clean, no artefact, deals so well with chromatic aberrations! It is difficult to get "neutral" settings to apps and compare the results as objectively as possible but I am amazed by SILKYPIX so far. Obviously, the interface is uncommon and needs patience, time and attention. It reminds me of Neo (Tao) an incredible Japanese outliner. Not a flash UI but so efficient!

I admit I haven't heard of this app before. Apparently this is the first English version for the Mac (correct me if I'm wrong on this) - though the version number suggests it's been around for a long time. From a video on the developer's Web site (showing the app running in Windows) it's clear SILKPIX Developer Studio Pro is a mature program with an extensive feature set. However, the interface is primitive compared to most contemporary RAW image processors. It's from a German developer and seems to have been available in Europe for a while now. The cost is competitive with Capture One. Given that premium price, however, they are going to need better marketing than their web site now provides if they want to compete effectively with the gold standard in RAW image processing. There is no easy way to compare it with other applications. On the up side, though, there is a demo version available so if you're curious - and have the time to play around with it - you can give it a spin. Be warned, however, the developer's Web site functioned poorly in both Safari and Chrome on my new iMac. YMMV. For whatever my two cents may be worth, while it might be a capable program, the primitive interface is going to hold it back. Given the current state of the UI, at least it doesn't look like other apps on the market - if that floats your boat.
