Sometimes a Cigar is Just a Cigar

...particularly when it's filled with catnip!

My daughter bought this little present for our Maximum Leader and it turned out to be a particularly pungent and delightful one. A Nepeta Cataria Robusto, if you will. As always, click on the image for a much better version.

I brought this photo into Photoshop to crop it and auto-level the color and lighting. When I saved it on high quality, I got an image that was 196Kb. When I saved it on low quality, I got an image that was 106Kb. I saved both and then flicked back and forth between them and couldn't tell the difference. Even close up, the little splotch of the barcode on the cigar looks the same in both pictures.

Yes, definitely a cigar is a cigar and cat which is in the photo is a cat but the difference is the clarity and the size that matters.This photo is really very clear and good enough to show your mastery in photoshop.I think the cat is holding one of the Cuban Cigars which is not clearly visible.Try your best in different photos taken by you or others and see how lively you can make them on screen.Best of luck.
