Yeah, I'm one of those guys trying to learn PixInsight, pretty much from scratch (meaning I have no previous PS skills at all).
I have for some months now been getting images using the nearly automatic Star Tools, sometimes with decent results (not always). I felt like I needed to understand more about the tools of post processing so I am putting in some tedious effort to learn PI.
I used the same M33 data to produce an image in both ST and PI (using the ASI533 OSC camera). Well, to me, the PI image is perhaps a bit less noisy. That's a very good thing! But I think, hands down, anyone would say that ST got the colors and PI left them behind someplace.
I followed all the beginner steps. I used the Curves to brighten/darken and again for "Saturation". But when I would pull the curve for saturation, pretty much nothing happened. I know that ace processors get beautiful color with PI. Even if I knew what I did wrong,
perhaps I lack the skill to make it happen.
But does anyone have an opinion as to where this novice missed the color boat? I would hardly be surprised if, with the vast complexity of PI, there would be different opinions from any user. Regardless, I will keep studying and hopefully at some point produce a better outcome.
