Real focus happens inside the camera's lens element. The sharpening features in Photoshop CS3 exaggerate the contrast along edges in a photograph to transform a well-focused image into an outstanding image. In Photoshop CS3 Sharpening Images, Deke McClelland teaches a host of sharpening and noise reduction techniques, including using filters such as Unsharp Mask, Smart Sharpen, High Pass, and Reduce Noise.

Plus, the training covers Deke's recommended best practices, including the four distinct varieties of sharpening, which can be used independently or in combination with each other. Photoshop CS3 Sharpening Images is about how to transform images from looking good to looking their absolute best. Exercise files accompany the course.
Hello and welcome to Photoshop CS3 Sharpening Images. My 115 movie series devoted to the topics of image enhancement, noise reduction, detail modification and sharpening workflow. If you are hoping to master Unsharp Mask, Smart Sharpen, High Pass, Reduce Noise and a host of other filters, this series will do just that. But that's just the beginning. In the next few hours, I'll show you how to approach sharpening one exacting step at a time. This series is about making each and every image you produce look its absolute best.
Simply put this is, unless I am very much mistaken, the most comprehensive treaties on post-photography focus adjustment ever produced. I kNow I say things like that, but it's true. It isn't just so much as this is my sharpening tour deforce, it is my sharpening tour deforce, but why should you care? What lies before you is an in-depth examination of exactly what sharpening does, why you need it, how the filters work, my recommended best practices and the four distinct varieties of sharpening available to you.
Each of which can be used independently or in combination with each other. Consider this place, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, a top secret alternative headquarters for lynda.com. Where you are, it maybe summer or fall, but where I am right now it's January, one of the coldest months in the northern hemisphere. It's drab, everything is dead, and although it's nice enough today, it's generally bitter cold. When you see a flock of birds, you know what direction south is. But Photoshop is a miracle worker; it can take this city dip it in the dream, separate the dull stuff and produce a perfect scene.
Oh, yeah, Photoshop can. Close-up or far away, drab and grey, or bright and sunny, every image needs sharpening to bring out the detail that otherwise gets lost in the translation from the real world to your camera, to your computer, to the printer. Sharpening is key to great looking imagery. Now this first Chapter is all about how sharpening and it's companion, noise reduction, work. The effects they produce, whats going on in the background, how you make use of them and accurately gauge results.
Even if you think you know everything about sharpening and you are just slumming, figuring out what the other guy knows. I think you'll find these first nine movies to be as precision-guided as information smart bombs to the brain. We are talking sharp, as in sharply-organized, sharply-produced, and you'll feel sharper when you are done. It's not nearly as painful as it sounds. Enjoy!
