Uneven illumination on mosaics

Post by Alto »

Hi all,

Can anyone suggest ways to reduce/remove uneven illumination on mosaics? I have a 21 pane pain that clearly shows 6 blotches, presumably where there's been a group of frames bunched. Looks almost like top side of a dice.

Pseudo flat as described elsewhere hasn't worked, but then I'm using Affinity Photo and not PS.


Call me Geoff.

I do what I do because I want to, and because I can....

Doesn't mean I know what I'm doing, though!

Proper flats will work Geoff, but if you're trying for the complete full disk then this wont work either.

No free lunch with a bad quark i'm afraid :(
