    Advice on sharpening images

    If you are new to photography or even at the intermediate level and would like to try sharpening your images just that bit more read this thread....

    The man is brilliant, the workflow takes a bit of following but if you try this method I can't see how anyone could be dissapointed with the results, I certainly couldn't!!! I don't have Neatimage but I did follow the Photoshop steps outlined and used Canon software in place of Neatimage...I now use it on all shots even if they are on the full image (not re-sized for Web) before I print them, brilliant

    I've been wrong before!! Happy to have constructive criticism though.Gear used Canon 50D, 7D & 5DMkII plus expensive things hanging off their fronts and of course a "nifty fifty".

    If you read Rick's thread on "Why Digital Images Need Sharpening" you will see why, I can't remember straight off but there is a good reason for it

    They do, you just have to learn how to find and use the features.

    In Rick's thread he posts a link to a High Pass Sharpening action and seriously, this revolutionised my photos (OK, I'm a beginer so was a low base, but I was amazed at the difference)...

    Yes, great stuff and when you start the process, the image can look really ordinary on the monitor but the results are something else when you print them
