Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video High-pass sharpening, part of Photoshop for Designers: Filters (2015).
This next example is something referred to as high pass sharpening, a technique …that's been around for a long time. The existence of smart filters do make it …now possible to apply this with just a single layer, which is what I have here. …We can see that I've converted the layer to a smart object, applied high pass, …applied it with an overlay blend mode. Let's just see what this would look like …without the filters. And I'm going to zoom into 100% first of all. …If I turn this off, there's the beginning state.…
And turn it on. There's the effect of the filter you can …see really sharpening that metal work. So I'm now going to switch over to the …beginning state, where I will convert the layer to a smart object. …Come to the Filter menu and choose Other > High Pass. …Now a variant of this technique involves, first of all, duplicating the layer and …then applying the filter to this duplicate layer, and changing the blend …mode of the layer to Overlay. But let's just keep it as one layer.…
