Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Sharpening, part of Learning Lightroom CC.
- [Instructor] The very process of working…with a photograph digitally…can soften that photograph…and so, it's almost always a good idea…to sharpen an image particularly before you output it.…And you can do that here in Lightroom CC.…Before you try to sharpen,…it's important to zoom in to 100% view,…that's really the only way you can evaluate sharpening,…so I'll go ahead and do that…and notice that when I zoom in on a big image…my cursor changes to a hand tool…and I can click and drag…to move it around to the area that I want to see.…
So, I'd like to be able to see up here…at the top of the mountain…where there's contrast between the white snow…and the blue sky…so that I can show you what sharpening does.…I'm gonna go to the Detail Panel…and here there's a sharpening slider,…a noise reduction slider…and a color noise reduction slider.…Now, often if you shoot at a high ISO…or you shoot in dark lighting conditions,…you'll have some digital noise in your images…and you can lessen that by dragging…the color noise reduction and noise reduction sliders…
