Through a friendly interface, this software solution provides a lot of tools and adjustments that are available equally easily for beginners and experienced users alike. The functions are available from dedicated menus, but getting to know where each command is may take a while and shortcut keys are provided to only a select few.
Insofar as the support for graphic image types is concerned, SILKYPIX Developer Studio Pro is only able to manage JPEG, TIFF and RAW photos, so you will have to convert other types of pictures to one of those formats if you want to get them inside this program.
The image tweaking features, on the other hand, are much more detailed and there are some built-in profiles you can opt for, which include presets like landscape, portrait, fine street, sepia, red enhancer, sunset and more.
Brightness, color, contrast, sharpness as well as noise reduction can be configured manually and in great detail by simply moving some sliders until you get to the desired effect. The set of utilities that SILKYPIX Developer Studio Pro comes with has tools for zooming, exposure bias, black level, gray balance, skin color, rotation and a few more.
The viewing options allow you to view the image properties, histogram, editing history and a couple of controllers that are well suited for fine tuning the loaded photo. You can save the development parameters, so you will be prepared for several scenarios when a specific array of settings is necessary.
All in all, SILKYPIX Developer Studio Pro offers a decent assortment of functions and can prove to be a really useful editor for some image types, but its main weak point is the limited support for graphic formats.]
