Sharpening for Print in Photoshop Elements – Photoshop Video Tutorial
The sharpening filters in Photoshop Elements attempt to mimic the focus of a camera lens, creating the appearance of sharp and defined objects. Trouble is, nothing can successfully mimic the lens element of a camera when the photograph is taken, if the details aren’t there when you took the shot, Elements can’t just create them from nothing. Instead it uses a trick to deceive the viewer – and as it turns out, it’s a very good trick. By increasing contrast between neighbouring pixels, these filters can and will do a great job – but best not to get lazy, it’s no replacement for the real thing and often times just helps to perfect an already good-looking photo.
