Applying Custom Image Preset in K-3 After Taking Photo

Hi, Merry Christmas!
Just got my shiny new K-3 and love it!!

Question: Is there any way to apply the Custom Image presets in the K-3 (Bright, Natural, Portrait, Landscape, Vibrant, Radiant, Muted, Bleach Bypass, Reversal Film, Monochrome, Cross Processing) after a photo is taken? For instance, if I take a photo in natural, then decide to apply a different custom image setting after (not a filter)?

The answer is yes, If you shoot in RAW. When you recall the picture on the screen, press the down arrow on the four way control. look for RAW DEVELOPMENT. you'll see custom image along with lens correction, WB, filters, noise reduction, etc. You can save as JPEG or TIFF. Merry Christmas:-)

PS. If you are shooting in JPEG, you can save the RAW data on the picture by pressing the AE-L button just after taking the picture. Then redevelope any way you want.

If you took the shot in JPEG, you can do what you want in The Pentax DCU software on your computer. There will be some quality loss involved, but it'll work.
