    Not got out today so feeling bored, have added upscaling to my macro work flow, even when its not needed to just to see.

    Unfamiliar with upscaling, it not being a feature on my knock off copy of photoshop from 2011.

    I attempted up-scaling in early versions of Photoshop and several other add one. Gave it up as interesting but not ready for prime time.

    Yours look pretty good tho I think I see some simplification in the finer details, neck feathers for instance.

    The process I found to work best, at that time, was to step up by an odd multiplier (105 percent?) But 3 or 4 steps was all that I could justify and retain acceptable image quality.

    You are right, ime viewing this as an interesting new add on from Adobe that requies work.
