Re: 5 Macro Images - Help me choose...?

Hi Ceri

The green background in #2 should be quite easy to improve. Select the background only, making sure to exclude the body, wings, antennas and fine hairs, for which you want to preserve the details and sharpness. This should be quite easy with a "lasso" tool since the three sections have almost straight edges. For each section apply a blurring algorithm e.g. "Gaussian blur", I guess level 1 or 2 should be about right to remove or at least suppress the speckles.
