Re: Please share your processing of a reference image

Re: Please share your processing of a reference image

Many thanks, Ivo, I've worked through that process and achieved a similar result. The only difference I get is less noise reduction / smoothing at the end of the process - please can you advise any other selections/adjustments you make (e.g. is it grain removal or equalisation you use?)

Please share your processing of a reference image

Hi, Like many, I expect, I mostly use the standard module workflow with default parameters which generally serve very well. However there is always the thought that a tweak here or there, or perhaps the greater use of masks, could produce a 'better' result. Could I suggest that those who are interes...

Re: StarTools 1.6 Final, 1.7 Alpha w/GPU acceleration

Fantastic work, Ivo. Speed of the alpha on my Ryzen 4600H with GeForce GTX 1650 is stunning. Happy to serve as a tester if you need me to do so.

Cheers

Re: DSS setting

I see that a "No white balancing" option has been added to the latest DSS beta at Ivo's request - please can he advise which of the StarTools image open options should now be used (the second from the left?).

Re: Which stacker?
