Photoshop tutorial for sharper pictures ...
Hi all! I would like to share with the whole community of Dreamstime, the knowledge that I acquired in Photoshop, like most of you know is a very complex image editing software. I state that everything I have learned is based on articles and tutorials, readily available on the internet, so I have no claim to teach anything to anyone, but I just want to illustrate my method of working, right or wrong. In this little blog I will talk about sharpness, a fundamental parameter and important for all images. This method I use for images that have fairly obvious contrasts of light and then the shaded areas marked. So we begin:
File> Open> load the image in Photoshop and go on Contrast Filter> Unsharp Mask. I generally use a factor of up to 100, a maximum range of 2.6 and a threshold of 2. These parameters are used in my pictures, but I repeat that they are subjective and may have as many settings depending on the situation and the result. Now that we have applied the filter, go to Edit> Fade Unsharp mask, leave the slider at 100% (otherwise we remove the mask!) And modify the method parameter> Brightness and press OK. In this way we order the software to sharpen only the areas clear and bright image. The dark areas and shadows, they will apply the filter, in this way, the image noise will be slightly emphasized. I hope I was helpful ^ _ ^
