I'm starting to work with digital negatives to make initially silver prints but hope to move to platinum palladium prints later. I'm curious to hear from others about how they sharpen their files for printing digitial negatives? I'm using both film scans and digitally captured images and fell comfortable with the capture level sharpening, but wonder what you all do for output sharpening. I have the pixelgenius sharpener plugin for PS5, but wonder if the amount of sharpening for inkjet paper is too much for a digital negative or if a different radius or type is better?
This is an unanswerable question in the manner put. Outcomes differ depending on whether the original media is a digital file or a digitized file from a film scan, then the size of the film original etc. (I assume your use of the words "digital negative" simply means an image file) and on what kind of paper you will make the print. Photokit Sharpener is the way to go for this because there is a plethora of canned settings from which to choose, between the different output and creative sharpeners. I think this is best addressed by experimentation, starting with a preset that closest defines the medium.
