    Again! Thanks for showing us this, it makes a bunch more sense. I’m still a cheapie, so I’m going to see (one of these days…) if I can do this in free GIMP.
    I love the transformation!

      You may be able to replicate what I did in GIMP, but for access to millions of tutorials, tips and plug-ins it is best to join the rest of us and use the industry standard. $10 a month is not that much to pay for Lightroom and Photoshop plus you get unlimited free tech support and updates.

    Excellent transformation. I like the warmer color tone. Makes all the difference. And it still looks like “untouched”.

      Thank you. I like the end result to look natural. Often changing the background a little helps frame the bird.
