AuthorSubject: PK Sharpener and 16-bit workflow   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Edward McCain
Posted on Fri Sep 5, 2003 4:24 PM

I just bought PhotoKit Sharpener and have a question about how to integrate it into my workflow. Normally I capture or scan into 16 bits and try to keep in 16 Bit mode as long as possible to preserve color data. Most of the time that means I make major tonal corrections first, then make major color corrections and then convert to 8-bit mode so that I can fine-tune the image and then sharpen right before printing it.

The workflow suggested by Bruce for PhotoKit Sharpener would mean sharpening right after scanning or capture, as I recall, but since Sharpener only works on 8 bit files, this is impossible at the moment.

* Should I skip the Capture Sharpening and just leave all the sharpening to the end (right before it goes to print) or should I apply the Capture Sharpening immediately after making tonal and color corrections in 16 bits and converting to 8 bits?

* Is there any point in keeping the original 16-bit files around in case I need to apply a different workflow in the future? Or would it be just as well to keep the 8 bit files that have been adjusted for tone and color and save half the disk space?

Thanks,

Edward
