Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Employing selective sharpening, part of Enhancing iPhone Photos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
…We talked earlier about sharpening globally in light room.…Now I'd like to talk about sharpening selectively in Photo Shop.…Because when it comes to sharpening there really isn't any better place to do that.…I want to highlight some particular detail.…I can really do it with a lot of precision.…As before I want to hit Cmd+E.…And send a copy over to Photoshop and when I'm sharpening…I want to make sure that I'm at least at 100%.…I'm going to double…click my zoom tool and that's going to bring me into 100%,…and I can see that there's a lot of detail on this file.…
So, lets take a look I want to show you a really quickly…the best way to globaly sharpen this and then we'll do a selective sharpen.…Smart sharpen, is the way to globally sharpen our image.…It's really easy to use.…You get great results, and you can actually battle the shadow and…highlight detail as well.…The other thing that you can do with this, is you can save a preset.…So if you are using unsharp mask, I'm here to…tell you, this is a better way to do it.…
