Images of a Big Island


G’day gang,
I’m hoping someone can help me out here, I am trialing a couple of Photoshop plugins at the moment, Genuine Fractals & Alien Skin Blowup.
Both these plugins are for resizing files and apparently do a better job than Photoshop itself. So far it is hard to tell them apart, Genuine Fractals looks slightly sharper but is slightly more noisy than Alien Skin. Both seem to do an outstanding job so it may come down to price and ease of use.
Has anybody out there used either of these plug-ins and what were your impressions?
While you are mulling that over, here is an image taken during my recent trip to Tasmania. There is an image of a European castle in Peter Eastway and David Oliver’s excellent book ‘Away’.
I thought i would see if I could do something similar to this image, unfortunately I failed miserably but I will give it another crack at a later date.
For all that I don’t mind the result that I ended up with!

5 image stitch, Lr2 & PSE7, dash of red wine!

    Hi Tim,

    I use Genuine Fractals and I know that many of the pros do as well such as Christian, so I am guessing they have done the research.

    In fact now that I think about it Les Walkling speaks highly of Genuine Fractals as well!

  2. There is not much between them that I can see but that is a pretty good endorsement!

    Thanks Mark
