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. The training teaches the essentials of sharpening, including what it does, why it's important, and how the filters function. 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.
If you were the kind of person who chooses the regular old Sharpen Command and calls it the day, I'd be hard-pressed to explain why you needed ten hours and a 115 movies of training to fully understand the uses for and best applications of sharpening, but you're not that person, right? And after ten hours and a 115 movies. You know to use a Sharpen tool instead. But seriously folks, I hope you learned yourself a thing or two and you feel it might better for it. I mean, after all lets talk about Smart Objects and Smart Filters and Smart Sharpen, I don't know how you could help it feel smarter.
