Yes, Topaz is available for Mac OS X - I use both denoise and detail on my Macbook pro. I didn't care for Adjust, didn't give me the results I wanted and I definitely didn't like the pre-sets, they are well over-the-top for my tastes. Detail's pre-sets are mostly much more than what I want, but it was easier for me to get the sharpening/detail I wanted without much work, or halos. It's easy to go over-board with the saturation.

I'm at work so the monitor isn't the best. Other than the light "pollution/glare/whatever you want to call it" in the upper right corner, I don't notice the problems - you did an excellent job of dealing with them. It's quite a picture, I really like it.

Nice Shot. I down loaded your picture and ran it through Topaz Adjust. It really makes a big difference...

Nice job. That looks pretty much the way it should. I wonder what the equivalent software to TA there is for a PPC Mac? I keep looking back and forth between the two. Thats a great fix there Ancient.

Thanks, it was fun. It seems that there is limited amount of support for your computer when it comes to programs like TA. Sorry...

Maybe time for a computer upgrade? I didn't realize you weren't using an Intel Mac.

Wow that second image just pops doesnt it? Crazy how much detail you've managed to squeeze out.
