Thanks Brian, aspirin helps but only sometimes.
Thanks Margie and and Lurch, I am still coming to terms with what I seemed to have forgotten
Hi Hannie, it has rained all day so I have made some progress. CS3 dust and scratches seemed to work better than the other "noise" software I have and has helped. I am up to 25 layers and will probably keep it that way so I can do a final juggle of the parts before merging. I do appreciate the training you gave Bambi though it doesn't appear that you warned her about the consequences of excessive grunge
I thought I might as well get back into a difficult one Bambi but you may not appreciate what a risk you were running presenting a thumbnail which concealed the true condition of the image. You should check with Hannie, you have redeemed yourself with flattery, this time.
Rain again tomorrow so we will see where we get to
