Chapter 10. Sharpening: Getting an Edge ... > Sharpening—Why, How, and When?

Sharpening—Why, How, and When?

If we got a nickel for each time we've been asked what sharpening settings someone should use, we'd probably be sipping wine on a tropical island rather than writing books on Photoshop. Of course, we couldn't really come up with a short answer any less lame than “it depends.”

The longer answer, of course, involves explaining the various factors on which it depends, which we'll now proceed to do. First, a necessary disclaimer: Bruce and his colleagues at PixelGenius publish a sharpening plug-in, called PhotoKit sharpener. While we'd be pleased as punch if you considered purchasing PhotoKit sharpener, you should know that a lot of what it does is based on the information in this chapter. The plug-in just does it a lot faster than you can do it manually.
