SILKYPIX is RAW developing software that generates a high-resolution picture from the RAW data of a digital camera. The original SILKYPIX development engine offers accurate color from shadows through to highlights.You can then derive your color preference from there on in. In addition, noise reduction and Lens aberration controllers are provided to deliver high quality images together with many other functions that todays' photographers need. Consider Silkypix as the universal RAW converter that yields clear photographs akin to the sound of a pure audio system.
Easing Brightness Noise
The performance in easing the roughness (brightness noise) in images generated through high sensitivity has improved compared to conventional noise reduction. Side effects such as photographs dimming have been suppressed when compared with the amount of noise as usual.
Improved Maintenance Level of Outlines during Noise Reduction
Blurs and waves in outlines are suppressed during noise reduction when compared with conventional items. Therefore, natural finishes are possible even with NR.
Adjusting Bright Sections and Dark Sections with Dodge Functions / HDR Functions
You can automatically detect shadow areas and have their brightness reproduced by intensifying them. In addition, this can be applied only to shadow areas without influencing the brightness of highlighted areas.
Color Burn only (common to both Dodge / HDR)
You can automatically detect and restore harmony to highlighted parts close to overexposure through desensitization. In addition, this can be applied only to highlighted areas without influencing the brightness of shadowed areas.
Red Eye Correction
By using the Red Eye Correction Brush found in the Spotting Tools, it is possible to designate and correct areas of red eye from flashes.
You can control details such as rough or layering skins, through the automatic search and smooth expression of areas close to skin tones. Natural, high resolution processing is possible in areas of skin tones and outlines near them. Sometimes reproductions of skin details in photography from the bust up are available in the latest high resolution devices. This is very useful in portrait photography.
You can obtain effects that increase the emphasis and sharpness of details of the subject being photographed by adding grey scale noise to your photographs. This is not simply adding noise uniformly, but rather distinguishing the brightness in photographs and adding noise filters to applicable photographs changed automatically in quantities generating noise depending on the area. Therefore, you can use this as a film grain (granular feeling of the frame) emulation.
Automatic Level Correction
This function automatically recognizes the photograph’s histogram and sets the level for shadowing and highlighting. It is a convenient function for when lighting conditions are weak (low contrast) and you want to set tones used to the maximum of RGB gradation. Sometimes a strong level correction raises the contrast, leading to a higher chroma. If this happens, use the chroma slider to lower the chroma.
Changes centered on shading
You can change the center of corrections to shading (peripheral dimming). This is especially effective when obtaining effects of dimming the four corners equally, even when trimming the photograph so that the center angle of view has been moved when the peripheral has been dimmed as an effect (when aiming for a tunneling effect).
You can confirm color tastes on the preview screen when printing by selecting the printer profile and “Printer + Paper.” It is possible to edit data for highly precise printing because you can confirm that there are no color shifts or eliminated (or added) dark areas when using fine art paper that is especially different from RGB characteristics. This function performs color management on the monitor, making it possible to proofread (simulate) to a high degree of reliability only in environments for reading the printing.
