Digital filter effects only in K3, K5,etc ?

I was most impressed with the digital filter effects I found in my K5-IIs and K3. A wonderful way to customize your pictures, practically a darkroom in your camera! I would like to be able to do that 'on the big screen', so I can adjust some other hum drum pics(it seems as though the digital effects can only be done in that 'K' that took the pic) . Does Silky Pix, the software that comes w those K's have that type of option? Or what source would you recommend for that type of effects?

The Pentax digital camera utility can apply the same exact filter effects on a RAW file.

Most other post-processing programs, such as Topaz, Photoshop, etc. can also apply filters of various types.

I like those too - my K-r pretty much duplicates the K-5 filters.
I use Base Parameter Adjustment a lot
