SILKYPIX Developer Studio 7 major 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.

The spotting tool removes a spot attached to the image sensor

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 is removed even if you have made the adjustment of color in developing again.

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 7 so that you can apply strong sharpness only on the focus point.

Feature of SILKYPIX

“SILKYPIX Developer Studio” is a RAW development software which develops a photograph satisfactorily with high quality image. Far using powerful computing power of PCs and let’s consider how we can get high quality image. Conventional, digital camera-specific disadvantages that had been thought to be helped are, for example, unnatural edge in the high-saturation color boundary, false color ride to the fine structure part, or noise in high-sensitivity shooting. These disadvantages were thoroughly suppressed and SILKYPIX satisfies both of the demand for high resolution and high color separation performance. We are aiming a smooth and natural photo image like a silk. This is the origin of the name of SILKYPIX.
