Sharpening
 
Hi

This link might be helpful for sharpening.

I'd hate troll so early-on in my RetouchPro career, but the quality of the workmanship in the link you provided: it's shit.

We can simply mask out layers of different-radius USM until our little hearts weep with joy - that's precision. I'm not sure what the author of the link was smoking.

Besides, sharpening's overrated for all but the most subtle preparations. Have you seen fashion magazines these days?

May I suggest a starting point in terms of URL that hopefully isn’t shit:

The method posted is indeed pretty over-complicated.
Using Smart Sharpen (remove set to Lens Blur) with various radii will give you identical results, albeit more flexible and controllable.

(E.g. for the method suggested you'd have to define the masks before you actually begin the sharpening. That's first of all inflexible and second not very user-friendly.)

Andrew's link is worth looking at though for a real sharpening workflow.

This is interesting Jonas. Do you consider this gives a better result than Unsharp Mask?

Different. Not necessarily better, because that depends on what you want to achieve :-).

I just mentioned Smart Sharpen, because the tutorial author in the link used lens blur, whereas USM uses Gaussian Blur.


Or weren't you referring to the use of Smart Sharpen?

Yes I was referring to Smart Sharpen.

Before he passed, Bruce did a great deal of testing of Smart Sharpen for possible use in PhotoKit Sharpener and didnít find it very useful.
