  • Sharpening Photo in Photoshop??

    Hello everyone,

    Does anyone have any experience using Photoshop cc 2017 and the the filter Shake Reduction? I need to start using it for a restoration job I am just about completing.

    Also, do you ever use more than one sharpen filter for different section of one photograph? Or would that be overkill?

    I would imagine once an image is masked in the properly locations it can be done.

    Like any PS tool, play around with it to get familiar with what it can and cannot do. For this tool it's a good idea to use the advanced feature - Show Blur Estimation Regions - to help fine tune your adjustment.

    You can sharpen any image using multiple techniques if that's what is needed. Just be careful to not overdue it.

      As a matter of personal opinion, I think there are often better ways to add emphasis. Sharpening has side side effects that can make things look weird if you take it too far.

        Ok, here's a very specific question, LOL

        For those of you who have Pixel Genius plugins, there is a high-pass sharpening as one of the automated sharpening options. It has a very specific effect that I can recreate when trying to sharpen with high-pass. The command flattens what it does...

        Fine Sharpening
        by davefk

        Sorry, this may have been asked a zillion times but how do you get such fine sharpening as this?

        is it just a case of multiple sharpening with low values? Anyone?
