For displaying multiple images at high speed, the thumbnail images included in the RAW data file are displayed at first temporarily.
And then the thumbnail images that were developed by SILKYPIX® are displayed instead of the temporary thumbnail images.
When clicking button on the toolbar or double-clicking on the target scene on the thumbnail view, the target scene is displayed in the "preview mode".
Only the target scene is displayed in the "preview mode".
The "combination mode" is a mixed mode of the "thumbnail mode" and "preview mode".
displaying the Thumbnail and Preview mode at the same time., With this mode, you can select the image to process and you can preview the screen nail images.

3.2 Outline Preview
The "preview image" which is displayed in the "Preview mode" or "Combination mode", is processed by two methods in parallel.
One is "Outline Preview" method for displaying the image as quick as possible, and the other is "Formal Development Preview" method for displaying the image as the actual developed image.
At first, "Outline Preview" is displayed quickly. And "Formal Development" begins processing in parallel with the "Outline Preview", it automatically and sequentially replaces each block of the displayed image of which processing has been completed.
In the "Outline Preview", only the outline processing which is shown below is performed to speed up.
(1) It processes partially culled RAW data according to the display size, and executes simple demosaic process. Therefore, there are sometimes some jaggy and false colors around the outline.
(In the "Formal Development", it processes entire RAW data, and executes complete demosaic process and false color control.)
(2) It does not process noise reduction, false color control, sharpness, and other frequency surface filter processing. Therefore, when you modify the parameter "sharpness", "noise reduction", "demosaic sharp", "resolution plus", or "false color ctrl.", the "preview image" will not be updated during "Outline Preview".
(In the "Formal Development", it processes all filters and the effect of the modified parameter is reflected on the display.)
It processes data as well as the "Formal Development" except for the above description. Therefore, "exposure bias", "white balance", "tone", and "saturation" is reflected also in the "Outline Preview".
3.3 Formal Development Preview
At first, "Outline Preview" is displayed quickly. And "Formal Development" begins processing the data in parallel, it automatically and sequentially replaces each block of the displayed image of which processing has been completed.
Therefore, until "Formal Development" has been completed, two types of "preview images" are intermingled.
While the mark is displayed at the right end of the statusbar, it indicates that the "Formal Development" is still under operation and there still remains the result of "Outline Preview".
When "Formal Development" is completed, the mark disappears and it indicates that the whole "preview image" has been replaced to "Formal Development Preview". Then you can check the final development result on the screen.
If you check 'Make operation comfortable by reducing the load' on the display setting dialog, "Formal Development Preview" is not displayed when displaying preview image smaller than 100%. And the parameter adjustment becomes able to be lightly done.
It provides you to reduce the memory cunsumption and the load of CPU when updating a preview image.
This setting is effective for the PC that has few built-in memories (less than roughly 1GB) or a notebook PC. Please refter to '9.2.5 Preview Mode'.
3.4 Changing Display Magnification of Preview
In the "Preview mode" or "Combination mode", you can change display magnification by clicking [Operation mode] button on the toolbar.

3.5 Mouse Operation on Preview
In the "Preview mode" or "Combination mode", when you right-click on the preview area, the pop-up menu is displayed by which you can change operation mode or display magnification.

The "loupe tool [zoom in(+)]" performs a convenient mouse operation mode that can enlarge the image, with the center of enlargement being at the clicking point.(4) Loupe Tool [Zoom Out -]
Since this mouse operation has been adopted by a lot of other software, it appears familiar to many users. Please use it fully.
When you operate this tool while pressing the [ALT] key, [zoom in(+)] does not work but [zoom out(-)] works.
The "loupe tool [zoom out(-)]" performs a convenient mouse operation mode that can reduce the image with the center of reduction being at the clicking point.(5) Palm Tool
