Sharpening - The High Pass Method
April 24, 2018 • Leave a Comment
First of all, why use High Pass Sharpening? Well the reason I use it is because I want better control over the sharpening process, to be able to turn up or down the amount of sharpening after I've applied it and use masks so I can selectively sharpen. This method allows me to return and adjust it again even after I've saved the file (TIFF with layers).
2. With the new layer active (highlighted), on the menu bar select 'Filter/Other/High Pass...'.
3. Your image should have gone grey and new 'High Pass' window will have appeared. Please ensure that the 'Preview' box is ticked in this new window.
4. Adjustment of the 'Radius' slider at the bottom of the new window will now start to show the areas of the image through the grey that are going to be sharpened by this process. Each image requires a different setting depending on image size etc. however, if you go too far with the radius, the image will be grossly over-sharpened.
7. By clicking on the eye symbol to the left of the layer 'HP Sharpen' layer, switch the layer on and off to see the effect of the sharpening.
