Defraction Spike Repair w/ PhotoShop
Run your mouse over the above
image to see the before and after images.
My style of processing
tends to reduce the brightness and sharpness of the scope's defraction
spikes. I have even been asked how I reduce them. Since the spikes are
still there, I prefer to have them well defined and a bit brighter.
The solution is to use Noel Carboni's
StarSpikes Pro plug-in for PhotoShop.
