This is the professional edition. It is the RAW development software equipped with the new RAW development engine and new Composition modes that enable high-resolution image generation.
The power of the Partial correction tool and the specific color adjustment function has been increased, greatly improving the degree of freedom of adjustment. In addition, you can use a brush to intuitively remove unwanted objects. With a lot of functions that enable you to create more creative works than ever before, the software provides consistent and powerful support from importing photos to selecting, adjusting, and printing.
New Demosaicing Technology
Since the release of the SILKYPIX series in 2004, the new demosaicing engine “Clear view” has been added as the demosaicing technology that is the foundation of image processing. The “Clear view*” is applied as default and you can develop the higher resolutional images than ever before as soon as you open SILKYPIX. You can also use the previous demosaicing engine “Standard” as well.
New Composition Modes
Two new composition modes have been added, allowing you to create even more various worldviews. A total of eight composition modes*. * The composition modes are available only for professional editions.
Magnify images 1.5x or 2x and composite them by using our image coincidence detection technology (patent No.4689758). The images are composited with the high accurate and half-pixel level image alignment, you can get the super-resolution image. Since the super-resolution image has large amount of pixels, high resolution can be expressed even when making large prints or cropping.
* It supports images of less than 9000 pixels on the long side.
Multiple exposure (moving object) composite
In a well-known multiple exposure composite, moving objects are composited with misalignment. By using the new “Multiple exposure (moving object) composite,” the only moving objects in the selected image are retains and ones in the other images are eliminated from the composite image.
Utilization ofthe Next GenerationImage Metadata
You can easily perform partial correction by selecting “Portrait,” “Skin” or “Sky” of the Object information (Semantic Masks) included in the DNG data.
Color conversion with a fine-detailed color gamut
The fine-tune of the color conversion might be difficult due to the wide conversion range in the conventional fine color controller, but now we have added the [Advanced] mode that can control color conversion in a fine-detailed color gamut. This mode allows you to select the converting color gamut in free and control hue and saturation of the gamut in detail. For example, it can be now possible to make dramatic color change like that the blue sky is changed into a sunset.
Remove Unwanted Objects
The “Retouch brush tool” makes it possible to remove unwanted objects by tracing them with this tool. There are two functions – in the “Retouch brush tool”; “Copy” to copy the original image onto the unwanted object as is, as well as “Retouch” to blend the surrounding color around the unwanted object. These functions can be used separately depending on the needs or objectives.
New Adjustment functions
Four new adjustment functions have been added to allow for new expressions and fine-tuning.
Partial correction tool “Clarity”
You can apply “Clarity” to a selected area of the image instead of the entire image. For example, you can use it to smooth only the skin area.
Partial correction tool “Sharpening”
You can apply “Sharpening” to a selected area of the image instead of the entire image. For example, you can use it to sharpen only the eyes or eyelashes.
The tone tool “White level”
You can adjust the maximum value treated as the highlight in an image. By using this function, you can lighten a darkened highlight area to make the image clear. Combined with the “Black level” function, you can adjust contrast even more in detail.
“Auto area specification tool”
Conventional “Auto white balance (AWB)” has adjusted the white balance based on the average value that is calcurated from light sources in an entire image. By using the new “Auto area specification tool,” you can select image area of the light source for AWB. This function is very effective for AWB to calcurate desirable white balance from images including multiple light sources.
