I made a tutorial on how to remove the limb artifacts on your Mars images. You'll see in this video tools in Gimp like layers, opacity and selection tools. I hope this is useful. It's 8 minutes long, but be sure to full screen and set to 720 to see all the little things going on in it.

Michael A. Phillips' Planetary Processing Routine version 8.1:http://maphilli14.multiply.com/journal/item/84 This video is just a getting started guide to Anthony Wesley's Ninox tool (used to be ppmcentre) I use the raw CLI and show you how to download and run the tool on some short sample data. Check out the rest of the commands: ninox -width=300 -height=300 -cutx=300 -cuty=300 -qestimator -qrenumber -outdir=C:\OUT123

 

 

This video details Michael A. Phillips' Planetary Processing Routine version 7. This section covers how the image data moves from Ninox sorting into Registax. Details of the video are located here:http://maphilli14.multiply.com/journal/item/37/Michael_A._Phillips_Planetary_Processing_Routine_version_7.0Next section is an introduction to Iris: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNdst4pfPzY MAP-HowToPlanetaryProcessingRegistaxv7-20081130
