Silkypix help

Postby CHICHORNIO » Thu Aug 13, 2009 7:18 pm

Hello folks! Anyone can give an easy tip with the Silkypix? I´m want to process my pictures (all color) oversaturating the colors individualy (not changing the gamma at all). It´s like what William Eggleston´s Dye Transfer process have done in the past with his pictures. Any clue? I always shot in raw with my GRII. Thanks in advance.

Hi Guillermo,

I think the tool you are looking for is called "Fine Color Controller"...

It may look complicated to use, but very easy. Just play a bit with it. Unfortunately, I know nothing about Dye Transfer process. I just checked some samples and I think it should be doable with Silkypix. I would try a combination of Fine Color tuning, color filter sand maybe Tone Curve? These three tools are my most used tools in SP.

Thank you very much for the tip. I´ll play with the Silkypix and make some home-made prints. Take a look to some of the famous Eggleston pictures at this link ( and you´ll see what I´m talking about. Dye transfer is an old film processing print system used mainly in advertising in the lates ´50. It´s not available anymore. It allowed Eggleston to manipulate colors separately producing a saturated effect without changing the color balance of the prints.
