Why not download PK and try it for a week. Pixel Genius has a 7 day trial and a money back guarantee.
I tried it for about two hours and bought it without hesitation.
Even though your photos are for web only, once you learn how to use it, you will notice a difference in before and after.
Try it, you have nothing to lose but a little time.
Fair enough but it's only free for a week, then what? I don't need to spend $100 for a plug-in that will only be used for output sharpening to the web. PK looks like a fantastic tool but it does so much more than what I need. I think it is great that it can be set depending on what ink, printer or paper one uses but I don't print. It has great capture sharpening capabilities but ACR 4.1 is more than sufficient for my capture sharpening needs. I love its mask creation. So I don't need to buy a $100 plug-in with capture and creative/content sharpening choices since I don't need them. If
I didn't use ACR 4.1 for capture sharpening then no doubt the PK sharpener would make sense. I am sure it is a great product from all accounts. If
I was printing my shots I think PK sharpening plug-in would be a neccessary tool.
Really, all I require is output sharpening to web for images at 1100 pixel length.
I can write my own PS action. Just need a few pearls of wisdom from more experienced digital photogs. What would be the best sharpening tool to use for ouput sharpening to web for a 1100 pixel length photo?
