Subject: Re: Help with soft edges in Digital Image 9


Thanks Mary. I was hoping I had missed them placing the feature somewhere
else in the program.

I used to save after every little step for just these issues. I then got to
where I was doing more saving and less working :). So I went to saving at
each "junction". I guess I'll be going back to more saving ;).

Thanks again.
