I'm using version 1.083-beta2. I have used the star reducer tool successfully a few times, but this time it is producing artifacts. Even when the only slider adjustment is star size, for example at 85%, I get the same result. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Yes this tool needs improvement and should be better in the upcoming release. What helps for a lot of people is to, with small steps, reduce the area radius slider. I had luck with that on a problematic image, with a radius setting of 2.3.
@vincent-mod Thank you. I had not experimented with that slider. I have gotten very good results now!
