I don’t believe that there is any other aspect of digital photography that confuses more photographers than the topic of “image sharpening”.
At Photzy, we receive daily emails asking…
- Do I have to sharpen my digital image?
- If I’m shooting RAW, do I have to sharpen my shot?
- How do I know when I’ve over-sharpened the picture?
- My image is blurry. How do I sharpen it to fix it?
- How do I know if I’ve under-sharpened my photo?
- What sharpening tool should I be using?
- Why is sharpening for the Internet different than sharpening for a print?
These are just a handful of the questions that come to us on the topic of sharpening.
I’m not joking. My email in-box is overflowing with questions on this topic.
