Also back of NR settings in Silkypix

I am using the bundled software Silkypix version 3xxx

I open the the image in Silkypix default settings nothing changed except under sharpening I select MAX Demosaic, then in development parameters I leave everything as default and then increase unsharp mask to 100% (max is 500%). then I export to TIF and import to Lightroom. Silkypix can do this as batch as well. Very fast and simple.

You should really also back off the noise reduction in Silkypix, especially at lower ISOs.

That's found next the the Sharpen symbol (a pointed triangle) and is a Paint brush icon.

If you have used a DR setting above 100 then the DR Expansion slider in the Highlight Recovery tool should also probably be backed off.

You might then need to give a bit of exposure reduction also, although I know the Highlight Recovery tool in adobe is really good.
