  • Replied in Green Fringes
    So a friend came over who is a bit more 'computer savvy' than I and we played around to try and get rid of the green. Brought up an image of someone running and zoomed in on the legs. The muscles ...
  • Replied in Green Fringes
    Phil, It's not CA, it only appears on my desktop computer and it's not around the perimeter of objects. If I bring up a photo of a person it will appear like 'eyelashes' on the cheeks, chin or ...
