Question Sharper Images

I remember some time ago, someone mentioned a sharpening plugin or appllication that works with PS. Does anyone remember what that was called?

Could you be refering to Nik Sharpener Pro by Nik Multimedia? It's pretty good and you can find it here.

Thanks DJ,
I'm not really sure. Sounds like it might be. Have you used it and does work well with photoshop? There are so many to choose from.

Hi Anthony,
Yes I do have Nik Sharpen Pro and it's nice but not worth the high price tag in my opinion. But then again maybe I'm looking for miracles when it comes to sharpening filters. I did find several threads that deal with sharpening images and think you might be able to get some good info from them as well as links to other possible sharpening plugins. Hope that helps.

I was specifically looking for this thread by Danny Raphael but was having trouble finding it. It gives you a link to a site that has done a comparison on several sharpening methods from the PS unsharp mask to one or 2 of the available plugins including NiK Sharpener Pro and a method devised by Jeff Schewe. Check it out here.. Hope this gives you something to go on.

My company purchased (nik Sharpener Pro! Complete) it was a waste of time and money. I can do more with the high pass filter.

Trimoon,
I think I have to agree with you on that one.

Anthony,
I also found another one but I don't know of anyone who's tried it. It's called Sharpness Editor and is from Power Retouche. I think this looks interesting but I also think it's a bit pricey. There is a demo you can try out. Haven't tried it myself so I can't say what the demo allows.

Nik Sharpener - not all that impressive

Yeah, ditto on what DJ and Trimoon said. There may some cases where Nik sharpener is superior, but I haven't run into them yet.

I bought it at the recommendation of another guy when I was first getting into PS. Knowing what I know now, I would not bend over to buy it again.

Steve: Check e-mail from me again.

Thank you for your comments, but I ran out and purchased NIK Sharpener after the first reply. Oh well! I purchased the least expensive one anyway and am looking forward to trying it on some old photos. I will keep you posted. The examples on NIK site are very impressive. The proof will be in the testing.
