Multi-Pass Sharpening Techniques Using Sharpener Pro 3.0
Sharpening digital images can be an incredibly complex and subjective process. Knowing how much to sharpen and when to sharpen are two of the most complex aspects when deciding how to sharpen an image. In this advanced demonstration, we will take a look at simplifying the complexities of the sharpening process. We will begin with a discussion of concepts regarding multi-pass sharpening, when these techniques apply and when they may not. Following the discussion, we will delve into techniques using Sharpener Pro 3.0 to illustrate input sharpening (RAW pre-sharpening), creative sharpening, and output sharpening. Example images will span from landscape to portrait photographs. Dan will discuss using selective sharpening both with Sharpener Pro 3.0 as well as with Adobe Photoshop.
