Is there a tutorial you're aware of out there somewhere - particularly one which provides suggested settings to use?

I believe, there is a link to a nice tutorial posted to some old thread, however the most important things to keep in mind are:

1. RAF files are never updated, however Silkypix keeps options associated with each of them.

2. Left column, from top to bottom.

3. Sharpening increases noise, noise filtering decreases sharpness. Raising both too far will create hideous defects.

4. Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V copy and paste the whole set of processing settings from image to image.

5. Curve and highlight recovery/dynamic range tools (buttons at the bottom left) can be used to adjust what regular exposure compensation and contrast will not.

6. There is the last stage of sharpening (unsharp mask) available in the "Development" / save dialog.

7. 16-bit TIFF files allow more precision for postprocessing.

8. Sometimes loading both TIFF from Silkypix and JPEG from the camera as layers in an editor can be useful (either as a reference, or for mixing/masking layers).
