The Sharpening Conundrum – Free Quick Guide

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.

Photographer and author Rob Eyers has written us a superb Quick Guide on this topic.
