Shortcut Software SilkyPix Features

  • Differences in Image Quality: Improved development engine
  • Differences in Tone: The nonlinear processing components of output gamma and tone curve levels have changed
  • Differences in Highlight rendering: The new development engine uses high graduation sequencing to aid silky smooth highlight recovery
  • Differences in Parameters: Sub controls, sharpness controls, noise controls, highlight controls and colourspace have changed
  • SILKYPIX provides non-destructive editing of images, so your originals remain untouched and intact for years to come
  • Development parameters can be organised and stored as individual preferences (Tastes) for instant recall and subsequent application to other images
  • Exposure control: Take control of your image's exposure and correct under or over exposed photos after the event, using the exposure adjustment control. This can help save photos that may previously have been deemed unrecoverable
  • White balance: Since white colours are recorded differently under different light sources, you can take control of your photo's white balance and say goodbye to irritating colour casts
  • Contrast: Flat or overly harsh images can be uninspiring to the eye. Take control of your image's contrast after the event by using the contrast adjustment control and its presets to breathe life back into your photos
  • Saturation: Under harsh light, dominant colours can sometimes overshadow passive colours making an image look garish, likewise flat light can make colours look muted. Take control of your image's saturation levels and subdue colours or make them more vibrant
  • Lens correction: Unlike some other RAW converters, SILKYPIX provides aberration, shading and distortion correction functions as standard. So there's no need to buy expensive plug-ins or use a separate application to remove and repair these unwanted visible errors
  • Image rotation and perspective correction: SILKYPIX provides comprehensive image rotation, vertical and horizontal perspective correction functions as standard, no 3rd party add-ins required. Take control and banish those leaning buildings and crooked horizons forever
  • Trimming: SILKYPIX lets you to non-destructively crop and cut your original images anyway you see fit
  • Sharpening: Add precise detail sharpening to your images like you've never seen before using state of the art "Pure Detail" algorithms
  • Outputs: Create a JPG for a document or web page, or a TIFF for subsequent creative processing in your favourite image editing software. SILKYPIX gives you full control over images size, compression and bit depth, to tailor your output according to your subsequent media needs
  • Printing: SILKYPIX yields professional high quality printed output with additional facilities for image preview, output sharpening and contact sheets. So there's no need to use 3rd party printing applications to get professional results

Best value


from Southern California  -  Quality Oriented

I use silkypix mainly for my business. The main feature i use are the color tools and the batch conversion. for me it was a better value than acdsee and lightroom which are both very expensive compared to silkypix. Their support was good for the product when i emailed them about a question i had regarding silkypix.
