Yes, I am aware of the various controls in SilkyPix. The software just doesn't have the capability to handle highlights and shadows nearly as well the other options. It is especially poor at lifting shadows.

That's impossible. Lifting shadows means compressing in the upper range and expanding in the lower one (r-shaped curve). Silkypix has contrast center adjustment and manual curve control, that both do just that. Saturated highlights are difficult because they lost information and have to be approximated/guessed, but in shadows all you have to care about is noise -- please don't tell me that Fujifilm has a noise problem in shadows, even trolls will laugh at you.
