General Comments and Introduction to Silkypix
Not a tutorial, just interesting items.

Developer Studio Pro 6
30 day trial, cost to license. Base cost allows 2 computers, extra cost for 3 computers.
Make sure to de-install (Help - Clear Product Key Registration) the software before de-commissioning a computer. Silkypix support can help if a disk crash prevents the de-install.
The  manual does get installed on the hard drive when Silkypix is installed.

All prices rather expensive in my view but major version upgrades are far apart so over extended time is cheaper to own than most other software.
Regular free updates occur as new camera models are added. Even older versions are updated regularly and you need the serial number of your installed version to enable your update download. Find that number by "Help - Version Information" and cut and paste that Serial Number into the site's download box.
Silkypix Tutorial
This one just starting out so only basic information there as yet it seems, worth checking back now and then to see if more has been added.
 Free Download/Update Silkypix SE (now V4.1) for Panasonic

Free for Panasonic RAW cameras, it is about 95% of the capability of the paid V5/6 versions. The manual does get installed on the hard drive when SE is installed.
Not familiar about which models of FujiFilm and Pentax cameras, but the links should help.
Upgrade special deals for Panasonic, Pentax/Ricoh, Fujifilm and Tamron versions are on the V6 home page. No idea of prices as I do not have camera serial numbers to check with.

Comment about Manuals - hard to read at first but make more sense as you get used to the controls and their possibly unfamiliar names. Plenty of extra reading and explanations of how things work in digital imaging.  The appropriate manual is always installed on the hard drive at Silkypix install time, access via F1.
Important: After installation or updates, always check View - Display Settings - Enable Colour Management - Select ICC/ICM File - Specify the file that your monitor calibration program (such as Datacolor Spyder) created.
