I wrote a few tutorials on getting started with DStretch. I plan to try and write a few more with some of the more advanced techniques.

I added a 4th tutorial, How to Remove the Wild and Crazy Colors

http://www.sefcik.com/2012/11/dstretch-removing-wild-and-crazy-colors.html

I also moved all of the tutorials to a single page for easier access

Hopefully more to follow

Have been through your first three tutorials so far. Was at about level one. Seems to me DStretch works the best with red paint and maybe yellow and blue. What I have trouble with is light on dark, for example, petroglyphs. Any tips on accentuating these? Tried image inverse in photoshop but still didn't do much. Thanks. Tom

@Tom:

I have not used DStretch too much with petroglyphs, I will try some when I get time. The software is meant to work with color spaces so I am not sure how it will do with petros.

I started a DStretch Tutorials Playlist on Youtube

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0kSVDXJE0vwvXrfnYbNNQLrqw2ll1bws

No audio, sorry I am lame...

I will be making some more tutorials soon that tackle the tougher job of isolating different colors in the same photo.

Comments/Questions welcome...

DStretch is pretty cool...it's algorithms originated from aerial surveillance techniques.
