Isn’t this a colourful little fellow? And I mean ‘little’. It’s about 6 cm high Grin

This was taken in HortPark about a month ago and I decided to have a play in the Olympus RAW software with the art filters. I used a Pinhole filter with frame. Then gave it 20% contrast in my normal software (Paint Shop Pro).

I like a couple of the art filters the camera has but for some of them I just go, "Really? Somebody's gonna use this?"

BUT...to each their own, yes? I'm sure there are those who will think that what I did here is rubbish! Grin

Thanks for the great response to my squirrel yesterday, all SmileSmile

EDIT: Uploading the straight-from-cam shot for Vicky and Mick who wanted to see the original ---> V2. Off for now and will catch up with yous tomorrow.

Thanks for uploading the original, Andrew, good to have a comparison. Definitely V.1 for me, a much sharper and better colour to it. Carol

It turned out nicely Andrew. I keep forgetting to use my Olympus Viewer to open my RAW images - I've gotten so used to LR, but the Viewer has some cool options, and sometimes converts better to tiff.

Thanks for the tip on converting to TIFF first! My Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro don't open .ORF files. So I fiddle with the RAW in Viewer then save as Jpeg then further process in PS and/or PSP.
