    To my eyes glad2 is certainly the best. Looks like a bit too much edge enhancement on glad1.

    vaguely fooling around (for the first time) with Photo Ready (CS2?) in an attempt to get a look at the image i think image 2 has quite a lot more EE on show?
    Again i am really struggling with an image of less than 5x6 inches on my laptop.

    Image 2 is the superbit. (Quick guess after 30 seconds switching between the two, appears to hold more detail although there are clear signs of edge enhancement on both, image 2 compresses the effect better)

    Image 2 I'd have to say is the Superbit (it's certainly the better image)

    I preferred image 2 as far as these pictures go.

    In picture form the sharper image is probably the filtered one so i imagine the Superbit is image 1 but that doesn't mean a thing as moving images are so different to static and just because i prefer pic 2 doesn't mean i would prefer it if the image was moving on a very large screen ( viewing it on a 17inch monitor )

    Not sure which is which, but I prefer the second one.

    How many differences are there to spot anyway? :D
