I have had an LX5 for a few weeks now, my first raw capable camera. I have tried SilkyPix a few times. On my old computer it seems to take ages to render. I am not sure what aspects of processing are best accomplished in the raw state. It seems that if I do nothing some of the lens distortion is removed. At least small areas of pixels starting from the center seem to be rearranged. The interface seems unusual, and the online manual seems to give me a headache. Is there any difference with other raw processing programs? Are any more usable on an older computer? I tried this one last night. It was taken hand held under a street lamp, with iso set to automatic, so I think it might be 1600. The sky and the porch were quite noisy, so I tried the noise reduction setting. I converted the tiff to bw in ps. I had originally posted this in the LX5 thread and BB suggested it might be better here. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.
