PixelGenius PhotoKit Sharpener 2.0 Creative Sharpening Question
« on: December 04, 2012, 11:40:49 AM »

On a high contast image  ( in this case backlit lots of small to tiny translucent objects  against a dark to black field)  which is the best of the Creative Sharpening Sharpeningtools to start working with? My thinking is that while I may  ultimately want to employ Sharpening, Smoothing, and Mid-tone Contrast boosts as needed as localized tools, either one of the Luminance, High Pass, or DSharp settings can do most of the work.

I am answering my own question. For this specific iamge what worked best was to first use a medium surface Smooth  settign and then apply a High Pass Sharpener  with a mask.
