Re: Photoshop Ai enhanced RAW

I just tried it out on a grainy high ISO photo, and still couldn't tell the difference!

Re: Remote control devices

Graham,

Many thanks, but I need the trap to be wide enough for a bird to fly through, so I'm making up a device to trigger the camera, rather than the flash, so it can be used with or without...
