Ok, I have a similar but slightly more simple situation to the original post. I set capture sharpening in Lightroom, but am not sure how high I should be setting it. I then go on to do selective sharpening in photoshop using the unsharp mask.
So what I need to know is how do you decide where to set the sharpening level at in Lightroom for capture sharpening (I usually use between 10 and 25), and how will this affect later processing? Should I just use the same setting for every shot at this stage?
I take it when I do my selective sharpening, I should still leave these areas slightly under sharpened, and I should then sharpen the whole image before printing. Is this correct, or is the capture sharpening just an overall sharpen up, while, the second stage is to creatively sharpen, for example the eyes on a potrait, and then print without touching the sharpening on other areas? Hope that makes sense.
