Tech News

Adobe have added a ‘texture’ slider to the RAW processor (and Lightroom Develop) which is designed to enhance detail in images. This spatial processing filter seems to work well without generating unpleasant artifacts. In fact it would seem to be an editing feature that will now become routinely used when we  edit images with Photoshop.
