Should I make any changes to a TIFF before or after running it through GF.
ie . Should any cropping or retouching be done on the TIFF ?

I always try to do everything first in PS. But I save 2 copies, one in PSD format and one in .stn(GF) format. If I do find I have to do some more work, I use the original and save 2 copies again, overwriting the .stn one. Hope thats clear.

Before using GF - Do not use any sharpen tools.

GF will seek out any poor retouching and, as lucybear says, sharpening. Be warned.

Surely sharpening should be the last thing you do before printing or letting go of the image?

In theory yes which is why image libraries will not accept images that have been sharpened and another reason why you should most definitely switch off any in-camera sharpening (or in-camera anything else for that matter).

Or you could try using Bearded Frog's Enlarger PRO,

Phil I've downloaded the demo of Enlarger Pro but it is so limited it is not really possible to judge how good it is. Have you tried it out to any extent and if so, what do you think of it?

There's now a free plug-in at
if you have Photoshop. It upsizes in 10% increments. Lots more info. Hadn't heard of Bearded Frog. I'll have to check it out.

Ah, I simply typed it wrong. This should work better!

The Action is on the right side, about the 3rd article down.

@ Alan,am i missing something?,i downloaded the program for Photo Shop CS,and i can make the photos larger by hitting the play key but if i save that image and recall it later it comes on the screen in its original size?,Ive played around with the settings but I'm just getting into a bigger mess.
