Task 7 How to Use Smart Sharpen

New with Photoshop CS2, the Smart Sharpen filter offers more control than the Unsharp Mask filter. For example, Smart Sharpen allows you to sharpen more in the shadows than the highlights, or vice versa. In addition, Smart Sharpen includes alternative sharpening methods that go beyond anything Unsharp Mask could ever do.

1. Open the Smart Sharpen Filter

With your image open, select Filter, Sharpen, Smart Sharpen. The Smart Sharpen dialog box has a much larger preview pane than does Unsharp Mask, so you can safely disable the Preview check box if it slows down the preview refresh time. Set the Zoom to at least 100% using the + and buttons located under the preview pane.
