What settings do I use to keep brown hair from turning black around the edges? The brown hair on a subject is now noticeably black around edges. Does anyone have any suggestions on what settings to use for the photoshop plug-in or what I can do in photoshop to correct?

Can you post an example:
Should be full size original JPG, but can be cropped to around the edge of hair. Should just be pixel-for-pixel the same resolution as the image your feeding into PK?

The most common cause for this is sharpening of the original image before bringing it into PK.
