SILKYPIX Developer Studio / Pro

SILKYPIX is “RAW development software” that generates a high-resolution picture from the RAW data of a digital camera and offers accurate colour from shadows through to highlights. This is purely made-in-Japan software. SILKYPIX corresponds to more than 700 different models of digital cameras and is supported by professional photographers and shutterbugs.

SILKYPIX Developer Studio Pro 11 turns your Digital Camera RAW files into great images offering a handy set of tools for convenient RAW development.

Photographers, designers and many regular users will get all the competent elements from the program. Without making any changes to your original digital images.

SILKYPIX Developer Studio Pro has a lot of professional tools and adjustments for photo editing, zooming, exposure bias, black level, grey balance, skin colour, rotation and a few more.

The viewing options allow you to view all the image properties, histogram, editing history and a couple of controllers that are well suited for fine-tuning the loaded photo.

You can save the development parameters to be prepared for several scenarios when a specific array of settings is necessary.

The powerful Silkypix Developer Studio Pro engine is famous for its colour accuracy in both shadows and highlights. Use the high-precision colour tools aiming for the best possible result.

SILKYPIX Developer Studio Pro 11 Features:
RAW development engine of SILKYPIX improves the gradation further

Improved “Color representation” and “Graduation” in the highlighted part significantly. This achievement was bought by the improvement of the 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.

Circular / Gradual Correction Filter

In the preview screen, you can correct partial colour 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. It enables to implementation of the correction which was not carried out by the conventional SILKYPIX series.

Completely new sharpness from superior outline detection

Generally, when sharpness is set strong, there is one side effect the noise is emphasized in blurry outlines or out-of-focus parts. A completely new focus plane and logic for detecting out-of-focus parts, so that you can apply strong sharpness only on the focus point.

L-Tone Curve for vivid high-key expressions

You can maintain colours even when changing brightness with the “L Tone Curve” installed in the 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.

Rating function in the photo image

Rating (typically a star mark) being added by camera operation can be reflected in conjunction with SILKYPIX. And it is possible to edit these ratings in SILKYPIX Developer Studio Pro. Also, these ratings will be granted in the developed JPEG and TIFF files.

Edit JPEG and TIFF format at high quality

Features of RAW development are high-quality exposure, white balance, and noise reduction. Can also be carried out in most of the adjustment functions in JPEG or TIFF. This is “SILKYPIX RAW Bridge” technology which extends JPEG and TIFF to 16bit. And converts JPEG or TIFF to close RAW data internally. It is possible to photo edit with high image quality and less quality deterioration even in JPEG or TIFF.

Colour management and print simulation

SILKYPIX obtains colour management in monitor or printing. Also, the simulation function is “Printer proof”. It simulates the colour on the monitor's close condition in printed results by specifying the ICC profile. These features support a process from accurate editing to printing.

By spot removal function a retouching software is unnecessary

At RAW development you can remove the unwanted substances in the dust and the subject of the image due to contamination of the sensor. By removing spots at RAW development, you can export to JPEG or TIFF with the spot removed even if you have made the adjustment of colour in developing again.

“Auto-area specification tool” – Pro11 Only

Conventional “Auto white balance (AWB)” has adjusted the white balance based on the average value that is calculated from light sources in an entire image. By using the new “Auto-area specification tool,” you can select the image area of the light source for AWB. This function is very effective for AWB to calculate desirable white balance from images including multiple light sources.
