How do I sharpen this photo? It also looks a little flat to me. How can I fix this? Thanks for the help. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

I took it into photoshop and hit "auto contrast", then "sharpen" and it perked up quite a bit. I didn't take the time to upload it to my server though. Try it.

From a clipping of JT that sits on my computer's desktop.

[ QUOTE ]

Here is how I use the high pass tool brought to me by Robert Sanders and if i don't explain this exactly, then it's not Robert's fault...

Create a duplicate layer

Go to Filters

Go to Other

Go to High Pass

Set the radius just before you start to see color in the high pass mode(you can dial it in for your best results)

Go to blending options

Choose overlay

Fade opacity if necessary or exact desired sharpness.

Merge the layers

That's how I do it. I don't use sharpness filter or unsharp mask anymore. To me this is a cleaner way of doing it.

I have a couple of questions with this technic.

1-Can you explian "Set the radius just before you start to see color". Which end of the slider should you be? Do you mean with the slider at the right just before you start to see the color change from the original? Or do you mean with the slider at the left when the picture is mostly grey, just before you start to see the color come back? (When it comes to photoshop you have to explain things to Zairia and I as if we were two years old.)

2-Where is the "Blending Options" Can't find them. Are they on Photoshop Elements 2? Because that's what we both use.

I maintain the right to ask more questions as I get further down the list.

Thanks for the help

JT was talking about Photoshop, not Photoshop Elements. I haven't used elements so I'm not sure how it translates.

When you apply the High Pass filter, the whole image turns grey. Looks embossed. A window opens that has a preview square in the middle that close-ups on part of the image. Under the preview square there is a text box and a slider. The text box is a numeric value of the "radius". I'm not sure what the radius is. I just slide the slider till I start seeing color showing through the grey in the preview. I normally put an eye in the preview box, so the color is normally red in the eyelid.

Then you click OK and your layer is all grey/embossed.

The blending option in PS are a popup menu at the top left of the layers palette. By default it says normal. Selecting Blend from the menu makes the layer suddenly turn back into color, but sharper. Then you just merge the layers together.

Hope that helps.

Personally, what I would do is start by getting a nice white balance with the "curves" feature, followed by tweaking the levels a bit. As far as the sharpening, just try the sharpen filter, but I would go for the color corrections first. If you have any questions, feel free to ask away, I do color corrections using Photoshop on a regular basis (it's actually the majority of my job.)
