Panasonic users might like to know that the free downloadable version of SilkyPix Developer Studio has upgraded from version 4.4 to Version 8.0. This is a large leap and has extra funtionality. It also installs separately so the old version remains untouched. So good news if you are a fan (Yes, I know it's just me). Main new features are: * Clarity Slider * Spotting tool and clone tool - not quite as easy to use as the PSE one. Cloned areas can be highlighted in red for review purposes. * Dodge/Colour Burn/HDR sliders. The Dodge/Burn effect is not the local adjustment you might expect from PSE but works on the whole image, Dodge on the dark areas and Colour Burn on the light areas - ie like shadows and highlights controls. HDR is similar but less much less subtle. They can be used separately or in combination. * Additional new "Natural" sharpening algorithm. * Controls can go to panel left AND right of main window or float. Reconfigure the interface to your liking. * New online help manual. Some of the translations in certain areas were barely understandable in the old manual. The new one is not much better but at least you have the two to compare, which might just make it easier to comprehend.
