Yesterday was my second day of using the Filter Forge software and it proved to be a long, long process. What a beautiful result, but it took 8 hours to 'render' this image. I looked up the forums to speed up the processing and made all the setting adjustments. I did a lot of clean up on the hard drive to free up processing space. I didn't get any substantial improvements. So I guess it's on to the support desk next.
I have to say the results are so wonderful, that it will be worth solving the processing issues.
