I’ve been using Topaz DeNoise for several years now. They have a new version called DeNoise AI that also comes with Clear AI, and it’s $20 off for another week or so through this link. Enter BATCH15 at checkout for another 15% off bringing the price down to $50.

Before using Topaz Denoise AI (and Photoshop Adobe CC to straighten things) on the above image, the photo looked like what you see below.

If you click on the images to get to their full sizes you’ll be able to see the differences better.

A Manga Lover’s Tokyo Travel Guide: My Favorite Things to See and Do In Japan

A Manga Lover's Tokyo Travel Guide: My Favorite Things to See and Do In Japan

@aniklasson @TuttleBooks @evacomics

A great book for kids or adults heading to Japan for the first time, or who want to reminisce about their time in Tokyo, I read the entire thing on a less-than-two-hour flight this past weekend. The pictures are fun, the facts are accurate, and the suggestions will lead to discoveries (or enjoyable memories) for anyone and everyone.

My daughter (now 21), who lived in Tokyo for a year when she was 11 years old, read much of A Manga Lover’s Tokyo Travel Guide: My Favorite Things to See and Do In Japan when she saw it on the nightstand in our hotel room. When she finished looking at it she exclaimed, “I wish there was a book like this for Ecuador!”. She is heading to Ecuador, for the first time, for a month or so on a study abroad in a couple months.

Nice work, Evangeline Neo!

A few days ago I watched The Barbarian and the Geisha. The opening scene is of a Bon Odori in 1856, and it reminded me of today’s photo, taken at the last Bon Odori I witnessed in 2013.
