Re: Star Tools advice please...
As mentioned, you may want to up your memory. I wait long for opening the file, cropping and noise but maybe for about 30 seconds. Seems longer since it's like watching grass grow but overall not too bad.
My only real probelm is that I am just finding it difficult to process a good image...but that's the user not entirely the program.
