I was surprised myself at the job it can do - I've always been wary of automated tools for much more than dust removal

Topaz labs have updated their Glow editing plugin. It now includes masking (so the effect is masked from the cup below).

I've written up a short article about using V2 of Glow

Two views of the Highcross car park in Leicester, processed with Topaz Glow 2

Not sure when I'd use it, but it has a whole stack of interesting effects

I know a lot of people us the B&W test image I produced a few years ago for parts of their print evaluation. I've just had my old GretagMacbeth eye one iO turned into an X-Rite i1iO and thought I'd update the test target on the test image to work with the iO. I appreciate that an iO is a bit of overkill for this (its list price is more than the Canon PRO-2000 printer), but I've included links to a lot more generally useful stuff. The new test image is also available as a 16 bit TIFF, as well as the JPEG.
Hope it's of some general interest for B&W print.

Pro Photographer in Leicester - Commercial photography, articles and reviews at Northlight Images
Introduction
My G+ Policies:

If you have circled me and want me to add you to my circles (and I don't actually know you), the best way to catch my interest is to make comments on my postings. (I have so many people adding me that I have not got time to go through everyone)
1. Please be using a real name or a professional name (I rarely talk to 'brands' ;-)
2. I like to see your profile contain some information about yourself (reasons I might want to add you) 
3, It's important to have made some public postings (more reasons I might want to add you)
4. Don't add me to try and market to me.

I'm a professional commercial photographer based in Leicester in the UK. That's me in my garden, in the top left. Photo courtesy of Karen, my wife :-)

I'm here to share my experiences and learn from what others have to say

I also link to posts here from my articles and reviews. The Northlight images web site is part of my mission to help more people get more out of their photography - although it's got a lot of more technical stuff, the emphasis is always on getting better looking photos and prints as the end result.

This is where I'll also discus items from the rumour pages on the Northlight site - it's the longest running camera and printer rumour source, and although I'd rather be known for my photography, I know that tens of thousands visit the pages each week.

It's only this century I really took up photography I'm an ex geologist/electronics engineer/Human factors consultant. I've done a lot of stuff :-)

Bragging rights
None and proud of it :-)
