Real World Image Sharpening Tips From Expert Bruce Fraser

Chapter Description

Avoid oversharpening your images and learn how to set up a multipass sharpening workflow in Adobe Photoshop CS2 in this excellent sample chapter from best-selling author Bruce Fraser.

From Theory to Practice

Thus far, the focus of this book has been to expound the theory of a workflow-based approach to sharpening images. In the ensuing chapters, I'll shift that focus to concentrate on the practical application of the theory. Good sharpening requires mastery of a significant body of technique, and knowledge of some of the murkier depths of Photoshop, so in Chapter 4, Sharpening Tools and Techniques, I'll cover all the techniques and tricks that I use in my own sharpening workflow, including nondestructive layer-based sharpening, and the all-important use of layer masks.
