Taking Macro Shot

Hello Ariel, Happy Holidays. Thank you. I did edit out the blur, after re-compiling the image with Radius of 20 and Smoothing of 1. It did a better job of reducing the blurriness.

Taking Macro Shots

Hello Ariel, I will change image to lower res ( 800X600). Since the image was shot in JPG it may not compress further. I did try with Radius at 20 and Smoothing at 1. It did reduce most of the edge color bleed halo effect, but still totaly did not get rid of it. Could it be because of my use of Blac...

Taking Macro Shots

Hello Ariel,

I have not changed any Auto setting and did not play with SMOOTHING. Do you advise changing the default auto setting R=4 and S=6 to lower value will help.
I will try attachment of the image tonight. Camera Rails are very stable.
Thanks for your help.

Symmon.

Mr Guest, Thank you for your kindly advice. My camera takes Raw or Jpg. I normally take Raw images at 9MP setting. Since you indicated Raw as prefered format, I will set the camera at Raw and set it for 5MP to start of and see how it works. If it works half way then I should be able to tweak the sys...
