Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Sharpening, part of Photoshop Elements 11 Essentials: 02 Editing and Retouching Photos .
As I explained in an earlier movie about sharpening in the Expert edit…workspace, the very act of capturing a photo digitally softens the image.…To compensate for that, you may want do some capture sharpening here in the…Camera Raw workspace when you first open a Raw file.…Now in most cases this won't be the last time that you sharpen, you'll probably…do your final sharpening in the Expert edit workspace after you've resized the…image as I showed you how to do in an earlier movie, using either the Unsharp…Mask feature or the Adjust Sharpen feature.…But here in the Camera Raw workspace you can do your initial sharpening, and…that's done in the Detail Panel, which you access by clicking the Detail tab.…
The Detail Panel offers four sliders:…Amount, Radius, Detail, and Masking.…We'll look at each one of those sliders, but first I need to zoom this image…into a 100% because that's the only way you can accurately judge what's sharp…and what's not sharp in an image.…The shortcut for doing that is to double- click the Zoom Tool, which I'll do right…
