Re: Australovenator forearm and manus described

Glorious high-resolution images, sixteen additional tables of specimen 
measurements - who'd want 
to publish a cut-down version of their paper in a print journal when you've got 
PLos One at your 

I particularly liked the digital images generated from CT scan data. By 
tweaking the lighting you 
can really emphasise every crack and bump, while removing the distracting 
colour changes in the 
actual specimen.

Of course, it's a step backwards for those who like to invent new data from 
those colour changes 
using photoshop enhancements. :-)
