Unsharp Mask Demystified
Thursday September 9, 2004
by Ellen Anon

"Ask any number of digital photographers the settings they use in Photoshop’s Unsharp Mask filter (USM) to sharpen their images and that’s the number of different responses you are likely to get. Because of this a significant number of people turn to plug-ins to do their sharpening for them. However once you understand the basic principles involved in using the USM it is fairly easy to make it work predictably and effectively."

ImagePrint 6 Notes
Thursday September 2, 2004
by Mitch Alland

I am pleased to see that the new ImagePrint manual for v6 is a great improvement over earlier versions and is, in fact, excellent. The extensive Troubleshooting Guide section is a good addition. Also, as program installation has been simplified, I believe that most questions on IP problems that come up on online forums can now be answered by suggesting, in the best Unix tradition, that the user "look it up in the manual...." These notes are based on ImagePrint 6 build 1.08. If you are using a later build some of the issues and glitches discussed below may have been fixed, as ColorByte is aware of all of them.

First of all, I have been a subscriber for less than 24 hours. Within the first 20 minutes I had already "saved" the cost of my subscription (forgetting for a moment the free profile) by reading of the incompatibility of Colorvision's Spyder with my Radeon 9800 Pro graphics card. The Spyder had been on my short list of possible purchases. Despite having done rather extensive searches about the Spyder, nowhere else did I find this information.

Then this morning I read yet another thread regarding the wisdom of purchasing Genuine Fractals (GF) vis-a-vis using Photoshop CS's bicubic interpolation. Once again Imaging Revue (IR) has saved me money. While I do use GF 2.0, I was considering upgrading to 3.0. More bucks in my pocket, fewer tension headaches, more money saved on Valium!

Beyond the direct cash in pocket savings, I have already learned a great deal by reading any number of articles and threads on various topics.

I have a suggestion but wish to preface it with this:

I realize that the primary purpose of the forums is to have specific subscribers questions answered and that is sooooooooooo EXCELLENT !!!! And you guys do a superb job of it! But these threads are an important resource to other subscribers who did not submit a specific question. Therefore, this suggestion:

Would it be possible to encourage subscribers who submit questions to first define their acronyms or abbreviations? For instance, in the thread "inCamera and/or ACR," I had to read through over 30 entries wondering what ACR meant before finally, Seth Resnick took the trouble of a few extra key strokes "(Adobe Camera Raw)" which now made the entire thread so much clearer and more valuable.

Surely, the subscriber posing the question knows what his acronyms mean, and the experts on the panel, being experts in the field, would understand them. But that does not necessarily hold true for other subscribers who might read the posts.

If subscribers use esoteric abbrevations in their original questions, perhaps the panel experts responding could, as Seth did, define the terms for us newbies.

Or perhaps there could be a reference glossary available.

Another example: (sorry, I do not remember which article) a refernce is made to USM regarding extrapolation in Photoshop (PS). Now I know that for Canon zoom lenses USM means UltraSonic Motor, but I have no idea what it means in PS.

With all the complexities of Photoshop, cameras, color management, computers, printers, monitors, etc. nearly everyone is a newbie in some area or other; the less "geek-speak" the better.

Thank you for a wonderful resource.

Brian
