Interesting that it happens with the others. I assumed they were using the same approach that I guessed Photomatix uses - just looking at local areas. Maybe mine is much closer to them that I thought.

It's not actually a halo - it's a different problem caused because it doesn't know that the bits are connected so treats them separately. You could try 1.17 in which I subtly changed how it handles that. It might still find that too hard but would be worth a try. It definitely handles it for small bariers but maybe those legs are too thick. I did a test which fixes this problem but it makes it even slower.

Simple - can you try 1.19 on that spider. There is a new 'Segmented' checkbox which will hopefully fix the problrm if you tick it.
Thanks,Martin

Well, this is interesting...

The fix I did for images that are segmented also helps with those skin tones. Here is Simple's test image processed on 'Very hard' with the segmentation option checked. I think it is helping it treat the face as one piece which stops it making small areas look too strange:

martin i found that on the spider picture it only seemed to to do 3/4 of the image as you can see inbetween the legs are done but behind the spider it is not?

After some more tests on the original you posted in the wildlife section, I think 1.21 does a better job (below) but it's still not perfect. It's too difficult for the program to tell the difference between the sink and the reflection of the sink in the chain. The area between the legs is actually slightly lighter in the original which makes matters worse. I think some difficult photos will just always need the professional manual edit in Photoshop afterwards...

This is set on Normal, Quality, Segmented:

thankyou martin for your time and efforts on this mate

however i have just tried the picture in the swimining baths with the latest version and the skin tones are totally blown maybe it should have been left? as the other programs suffer too ?
