    Lightbulb USM settings

    Look, I hate giving away my precise settings, but try these (if you 'nailed' the focus):

    Amount: 100%
    Radius: 1.8 pixels
    Threshold: 3 levels

    And see how that works for you. Remember, these are sharpening settings for a "full sized" image, not a resized, smaller one.

    Red face Hmmm ...

    Can't say that I see that much difference ... which is a little daunting. My eyes must be going ...

    My squirrels tend to look a little "fuzzier."

    Red face Lens Quality?

    Could be that MACRO lens I am using, too. It picks the hairs out of these little bandits!

    Well, that last one does not look anywhere near as denuded as that first one. Man ... talk about a skin condition.

    BTW: How do you get them looking in the same direction? Mine are like all over the place in seconds ...

    they were both close to each other actually and the light coloured one scooted off and the dark one took it's place all within a minute or so!

    he looked at me first before he looked left

    I tell ya, with that color ... he looks more like a "tree-rat" than a squirrel. Sheesh!

    We've got some of them dark ones around here, too. There seem a bit more aggressive than the grays!

    Sorry Elisha, I have to agree with Don, they look over done. I know it takes more time but I have stopped using the auto setup for nn. I am doing them by hand individually.
    Maybe the combination of their darker color and being in the shadows is making it more difficult to find that right combination.
