RE: Neat Image

Neat Image is the kind of plugin that works best if the user gets to know what all the sliders do and tweaks the default starting point. It is quite a technical plug in. I disagree that the NR in ACR/LR is better - the NR in the latter is certainly good, but <acronym title="Portugalia (Portugal)">NI...

Renaissance Hotel Heathrow Club Lounge?

Hello. I have limited mobility so Myrtle Avenue and a lot of other less comfortable venues (Myrtle Avenue, etc) are not an option for me.
