Review of PhotoKit™ SHARPENER
Wednesday September 3, 2003

Section 1: Introduction



by Ian Lyons

So you think you know all there is to know about sharpening digital images? Well think again, because the horrible truth is that many of us haven't got the first clue as to how, when, or even where to sharpen our images.

As photographers we tend to under-sharpen our images, which invariably results in soft-looking prints lacking in fine detail. On the other hand, our friends (okay I'm stretching the friendly part) in the prepress industry go the opposite direction and tend to over-sharpen; creating crunchy images that are effectively impossible to re-purpose. So what is it with sharpening digital images that causes both camps to get it so wrong?

Sharpening is one of those necessary evils that digital imaging seems to impose upon us. There are several, sometimes contradictory, reasons for this, but basically they fall broadly into two areas of the digital workflow: Capture and Output.
