    :)

    I am eager to know further details, Silkypix is great for developing my fuji RAW shots!

    I guess that it will be released around March, the english version maybe a bit later.

    I hope it has a more understandable Highlight and Shadow recovery panel. I have just used #7 for sharpening and filmsimulations of some of RAF files.

    Not too familiar with Silkypix. Downloaded it and never really gave it a thorough try. I felt the aesthetics of the software was atrocious. Fonts were blurry. Looked like software from the early 1990's.

    Key new features:
    • Adjustment of clarity is possible (this is interesting)
    • Added brush to partial correction function (very useful for more complex editting)
    • Enhanced monochrome conversion function
    • Marine controller is installed as a correction function dedicated to underwater photography
    • Improved user interface(yes!)

    But the results are far from 1990ish.

    Once you get to know the interface it is quite smooth, easy and straightforward. Probably the most difficult part is that there isn't really any "good" book or guide in english so you have to rely on the manual and your knowledge from Lightroom, CO, IridientDev etc, past that, it is an incredibly powerful software. Not only I can match my occ JPEGs from camera, I can improve them (including profiles like ACROSS)

    There's a good German book on SilkyPix. However, it is based on V6.

    I was hoping for new engine for faster performance but look like still the same as v7.
    OP, do you mind sharing your basic workflow?
