Do it soon and show us the result please.

It's too late already.
He lives in Northern Illinois.
You know how many people have been scampering to photograph the fall colors?

Owen is building snowmen!

Fred  (Who lives in Florida)

Not building snowmen quite yet, but it won't be long.

We've had wind & rain, so the fall colors are pretty much over down here.  However, we're looking at buying a cabin in northern Wisconsin.  Here's the view from the shore, taken about a month ago.

Thanks, Fred.  DFS certainly helped render the edges of the petals which overlap other petals.  That particular white-on-white detail was barely visible in the original.

And thanks again to you and Terry for the DFS tutorials.

I Might have used 300 instead of 400 in sample 2, but you have the actual image, and it's up to you.

I'll try it.  So far, a test print on 8x11 paper looks good.

Fred, Terry, and Mike...
 I think DFS is terriffic and fully understand that it is better than USM, and how it works .My original question to Mike...

http://ddisoftware.com/tech/qimage-ultimate/v2013-100-issuescomments/msg12667/#msg12667
 
and confusion  about the new DFS TTS, was centered around the fact that the title for the TTS tool in the application box still says USM Tone Targeted Sharpening rather than DFS TTS, or just TTS, leaving us to choose in the drop down pull out on the left side.
Just a matter of semantics  Wink

David,
I am missing where and what you are pointing to.

When I open the editor to get to the Sharpener, it says DFS. I have to actively change it to USM.
Now, perhaps you are opening old images with saved USM?

Please explain where I should look.
Thanks,
Fred

Above the amount slider it says "USM Tone Targeted Sharpening"  see on your screen capture.

what Dennis said Fred!
That is why I originally asked if Tone Targeted sharpening would implement DFS because the title above the slider still says USM Tone Targeting

The TTS slider box title  should probably just say Tone Targeting now, since there is a choice of either USM or DFS   TTS  Wink

Thanks Dennis and David..
I think, for a prize of 100 bucks, I still would have missed that

Ok, that's cosmetic, and should be an easy fix as soon as Mike reads some of this.
You are right though. It could be confusing.
Thanks

It's easy to overlook.  I did.  The first thing that catches your eye on the "new" screen is "DFS" in the drop-down box.

I've been doing some work on a portrait, taken against the light so with a bit of flare, that needs some agressive sharpening.

And then using the 'exclude' control on the skin tones to soften them.

I'll aim to post the results later today - but if anyone has any views about the best way to do this please let me know so I can incorporate them.
