Anita Bower June 14, 2014

Very, very nice. Did you use fractilius? #11065365

Anita Hogue June 14, 2014

Thank you everyone. I did not use fractilius Anita, I use a mac and I don't think it is compatible with a mac, or it didn't use to be compatible. I did use Topaz Vivacity sharpening and worked the sliders. #11065375

Anita Bower June 14, 2014

Thanks for response. I assume you mean vivacity in Topaz Adjust? If so, I've never used that setting. Just tried it out and discovered nice effect. You did a fantastic job. #11065379
