In the last movie, I talked about using Edge Sharpen for our sunflower shot,…instead of the regular sharpening filter.…And I want to talk just a bit more about that.…Now, in Aperture, we do have a regular sharpen filter, but I don't care for it much.…I don't think it's very sophisticated and I don't think it gives the best results.…The other filter that we have that I really like, is the Edge Sharpen Filter,…and that's what we used in our sunflower shot.…
The Edge Sharpen Filter only works on the edges of the image and it doesn't add…noise to the continuous tone areas.…This is exactly what we want.…So, if you have a lot of blue sky and you have a car in the foreground, you want…to sharpen the car but you don't want to add noise to the blue sky.…And that's exactly how Edge Sharpen operates and plus it does it in multiple passes.…So, it gives you a really nice, clean sharpen.…The point of this is that if you have both Aperture and iPhoto and you need to…do some sharpening on an image, I recommend that you do what we've done here…
