    getting rid of glare on car body

    Hi ronmatt and lasa Thank you very much for your efforts. You both did really fantastic work. I don't think my own after shot effectively shows the big improvement from the original, and I deliberately left the brick reflection in there cause I kinda really like it - and my client was very...

    getting rid of glare on car body

    Hi Everybody Long time no see. This question may have a shamefully simple solution and please know that I am trying quite a few different things with some success, but is there a really nifty way of ridding a car body of glare - in a photo? Thanks in advance Cheers Koula :)

    iris gradient in 5.5

    Many Thanks Rantin Al Your tip prompted memories of a zoomglow technique. I tried radial blur zoom on my gradient and got entirely inappropriate yet very interesting effects. In the end, I actually remembered that it is actually the angle gradient that's used for the iris in the technique I...
