If you edit your images in Photoshop, Elements or Lightroom, it’s often hard to know as a newer photographer, how much editing is “too much.” This is especially true of sharpening for print.
Our best advice on how to sharpen for print:
- View your images at 100% when you want to sharpen them.
- More is not always better when it comes to sharpening.
- Choose global or local print sharpening, but NOT both. Either use a selective Photoshop action/Lightroom preset like Gem Polish from Inspire / Exact-O-Sharp in Fusion / Enlighten Sharpening Brush) OR use a global, all-over sharpening like Razor Sharp from Four Seasons / Perfect Print Sharp from Inspire / Develop Preset Sharpening in Enlighten.
