Sharpening with Layers to Avoid Color Shifts and Noise

This is another technique for avoiding noise and color shifts when sharpening, and just as in some of the techniques shown earlier in this chapter, this one also makes use of layers and layer blend modes. The method is a cross between a technique that I learned from Chicago-based retoucher David Cuerdon, and a method from Jim DiVitale, in one of his articles from Photoshop User magazine.

Step One

Open the photo you want to sharpen using this technique. Duplicate the Background layer by going under the Layer menu, under New, and choosing Layer via Copy (or press Control-J). This will duplicate the Background layer onto a new layer (Layer 1).
