Photoshop CS4 New Features: Sharpening Images explores the changes to CS4's image-sharpening tools. As a companion to Deke McClelland's Photoshop CS3 Sharpening Images, this short course teaches the new features for sharpening in CS4, focusing on the OpenGL support. OpenGL allows the user to preview an image at the size it will print, rather than waiting on output. For more information on sharpening after this course, continue with Photoshop CS3 Sharpening Images. Exercise files accompany this course.
The movies you just watched represent merely an introduction to the larger concept of sharpening images. You might think of them as chapter one of what is ultimately an eight chapter series. In fact, the other seven chapters are found in my in-depth video series, Photoshop CS3 Sharpening Images. It's available to you here, right now, on the lynda.com Online Training Library. To get to it, click on the link included on this page, and then watch Chapter 2, When to Sharpen, and keep watching until the very end, Chapter 8, Sharpening for Output.
No need to watch Chapter 1. The videos you just watched replace the old Chapter 1. Now the interface is 100% Photoshop CS3. The biggest difference for you CS4 users: Adjustment layers now appear inside of the Adjustments palette instead of a dialog box. Otherwise, it's all the same. Enjoy! Until next I see you, which is hopefully in just a few seconds, this is Deke McClelland saying, 'See ya!'
