Japanese software developer Ichikawa Soft Laboratory Co. has released a new version of its Silkypix Development Studio Pro. Includes Raw adjustment and conversion program adds a clarity slider to the tool-set. Users can also now take more control of black and white conversions using the Monochrome Controller Function that allows a range of colors to be lightened or darkened to simulate the use of colored optical filters over the lens of a camera loaded with black and white film. For selective enhancements a brush tool has been added to the Partial correction tool kit which the company says will make it easier to create rounder selection areas for adjustment. Those who like to shoot underwater will be glad of a dedicated tool for correcting the color of images recorded in a range of sub-aqua conditions which reduces the impact of color-loss and shift at various selectable depths.
