Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video FocalBlade, part of Photoshop: Sharpening Power (2011).
FocalBlade is a Sharpening tool offered by the plugin site, and it offers …impressive power for sharpening your photographic images. …Let's take a look at some of what FocalBlade has to offer. …I'll go ahead and apply this Sharpening as a SmartFilter, so that I can go back …and refine my sharpening later if I need to. …So I'm going to convert my image to a Smart Object first by choosing Filter > …Convert for Smart Filters, and I'll Click OK in the alert here, and my image is …converted to a Smart Object. I can then choose Filter > Photo Wiz, and …then FocalBlade from the menu in order to bring up the FocalBlade dialog.…
By default, FocalBlade is working in Easy mode, but I can also choose a variety of …other modes including Advanced mode, which adds additional tabs with more controls. …To get started, we can use the Auto mode, and this is actually relatively …straightforward and an easy way to start working with FocalBlade. …I'll Pan across the image here a little bit so we can see some more details. …
