Firstly I hope I don't get a scolding for posting quickly in succession and secondly I hope Mackinawman forgives me for borrowing his images!
I took a quick snapshot of his knitted bags dilema and tweaked it in Bridge. The downloaded image I took off Photographica obviously doesn't do Mackinawmans original image the justice it deserves. I'm no photoshop expert by anymeans but I sharpened the image and increased clarity and I think there is a little improvement though I guess there is room for lot's more.
The original was downloaded off Photographica and resized by 300% which gave an image size of 597kb.
