Features of SILKYPIX Developer Studio 4.0 for Tamron

The SILKYPIX Developer Studio 4.0 software can develop high-quality images from RAW data, incorporating taste adjustments such as white balance, color, sharpness and tone curve recorded by digital cameras.

The SILKYPIX Developer Studio 4.0 for Tamron provides a range of functions, in addition to the basic adjustment capabilities, such as correcting aberrations (chromatic aberrations of magnification, distortion, peripheral light fall-off), based on the optical data.
