Selective Sharpening

High Quality Images without Excess Noise

Selective Sharpening. High Quality Images without Excess Noise.
In this video, I'll show you how to selectively sharpen parts of an image with multiple levels of high pass filters. This method allows you to use very fine sharpening on small details and more coarse sharpening on larger details. Much better and less noticeable than generically sharpening the entire image. This is also especially useful when you have out of focus areas (bokeh) and you definitely wouldn't want to have sharpening on those areas of an image! 


Hope you enjoyed this video!
