Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Sharpening, part of Learning Lightroom 5.
Another consequence of the digital capture process is that it softens photos. …So photographers will often sharpen their photos and you can do that at more than …one point in your work flow. So many photographers will sharpen upon …capture using the sliders in the detail panel in Lightrooms develop module. …And they also may sharpen during their workflow and then they might sharpen …again when they output a photo and that's called Output Sharpening. …And I cover that elsewhere in the course when we're talking about exporting a photo. …So let's talk about capture or creative sharpening here in the Detail panel in …the Develop module. The first thing to remember about …sharpening is that you can't evaluate the sharpness of an image.…
Nor the effects of the sharpening sliders unless you zoomed in to one to one view. …And you can do that both in this small preview here at the top of the Detail …panel, which you can access by clicking this triangle. …And in the large preview in the work area itself. …
Then you'll learn key ways to manage your photos in Lightroom, from reviewing photos after a shoot to working with Smart Previews when your photos are offline. This part of the course covers making collections, adding keywords, and much more.
Next, the course introduces the Lightroom Develop module and its features for improving a photo's appearance, including adjusting tone and color, cropping and fixing perspective, converting to black and white, reducing noise, and sharpening. It explores how to make local adjustments with the Adjustment Brush, Radial Filter, Graduated Filter, and Spot Removal tools. The course ends with a look at the most commonly used Lightroom features for sharing photos: exporting, printing, and sharing online.
