Special tool: Underwater Photo Controller


A function from “SILKYPIX Marine Photography” for RAW development software dedicated to underwater photography has been installed into “SILKYPIX Developer Studio 9 Pro” called Underwater photo controller. With this Underwater photo controller, you can correct the bluishness that is difficult to adjust with the normal white balance by using “White balance for underwater.” It also features “Color restoration,” which actually reproduces colors lost in water, as well as “Muddy reduction” to eliminate murkiness in water.

New Features:


Silkypix Dev Studio 9 Pro - Pixel-precise polygon

NEW: Pixel-precise polygon selection

The selective selection of individual image areas in SILKYPIX now works pixel-precisely with the new polygon tool – select the area to be corrected and change the contrast, brightness or colour with one mouse click. The result looks very natural and homogeneous. With this tool you can now also create effective colour key images and set individual colour accents on black and white images.

NEW: Adjust brightness of highlights and shadows individually


Tone scale reproduction and saving the highlights

Here comes a long-awaited highlight: the adjustment of highlights and shadows is now done separately. Even in scenes where dark contrasts predominate or where exposures are difficult to control, you can tickle out all image information from your photos here. The new tool is very powerful and delivers completely new image impressions, which were much more difficult to implement in previous versions.



NEW: Distortion correction

With the new correction function, lens errors, distortions and chromatic aberrations are automatically removed via a database – not only JPGs, but also RAW images are corrected in only one step! Even strong barrel and pincushion distortions can be corrected easily.

SILKYPIX Developer Studio 9 Pro uses the lens database of “Lensfun”, an open source library that performs an image correction based on the lens information in the stored profile.

If manual corrections or own profiles are to be transferred, this works with simultaneous capture of JPEG and RAW images with lens correction enabled in the camera – and if JPEG and RAW images are stored in the same folder.



NEW: Dehaze/Dust removal

SILKYPIX now also offers this long-awaited feature – with this new feature you can remove fog, haze and gray haze in a single step and thus ensure crystal clear colours and detailed images.

Micro noise, caused by pale or tinted subjects – this image disturbance is also removed and the photo appears clearer and sharper.

NEW: Magical Bokeh

Redefine your best portraits! Blurred backgrounds add a professional touch to any portrait. This new feature is extremely useful for all wedding photographers and will instantly create effective bokeh backgrounds – so you can easily put the spotlight on the subject!

But that’s not all SILKYPIX can do, because from now on you control where the blur stops and where the sharp area begins. You can restore the sharpness of blurred areas in images and increase depth of field – a feature that comes handy for landscape and architectural shots. Try it out!
