The software requires Microsoft Windows 7 or Mac OS X 10.6 or 10.7.
All DC versions include a virtual light table for organizing, managing and manipulating (for example color temperature regulation, exposure adjustment and red-eye correction) the images. The user can create photo archives and albums, add comments to images, generate contact sheets of the complete view port and produce or print single pictures in high resolution and in variable sizes.
SilverFast DC Pro has the functions of the scanner software SilverFast Ai for digital images. Supported are the standard image formats like JPEG and TIFF, but also the unprocessed raw image format. Because of their high dynamic range, raw images are an ideal base for image processing. Access to the raw data allows manual color correction or sharpening, instead of using the camera's automation, which often does not work perfectly. SilverFast DC supports Adobe DNG and many camera models of the better known makers; some of them optimized by special camera profiles. With the included IT8-target, individual ICC profiles can be self-made for every camera.
SilverFast DC Pro contains additional features like the automated color optimization AACO, support for JPEG 2000, unsharp masking USMPlus, CloneTool, and an improved PrinTao module with functions for text and layout.
