MAKE IT SHARPER

There’s no way to make a picture sharper in editing. It’s just an illusion. But, it’s a good one! What appears sharper is simply exaggerating the contrast along an edge. If you want to produce the sharpest apparent image, it’s helpful to know there are three levels of sharpening. Capture sharpening compensates for the slight intentional blurring on most digital cameras (anti-aliasing filter). Creating sharpening involves picking your subject and making that sharper; this is a localized adjustment and forces the eye to focus on what’s important: your subject. Output sharpening sharpens the entire image based upon the median used and the intended size.
