Try playing around with it till u get the desired result you want ? :dunno:ST_sg said:Aware that a lot of you guys do apply this filtering in Photoshop, care to share what's the recommended setting if I want to give it a try?
ie. Amount: xx%
Radius xx pixels
threshold: xx levels
Thanks in advance.
If you are going to develop the photos in a shop, do not perform USM as i was told that the machine are programed to sharpen up the photos before printing. If you have done the USM yourself, tell the shop to bypass/inactivate that step, else you will USM it twice, and hence the artifacts.clive said:i just collected my 8"x12" test print and realised that it looked too "artificial". the USM setting used was:
which means for 8"x12", the above mentioned setting still needs further refinement...
i was wondering: is there any URL that mentions something like:
4"x6": use so n so setting,
8"x12": use so n so setting...
ie u get the idea lah . if such a URL exists...it wld be great :think:
Clive, your setting are too aggressive for A4.clive said:i just collected my 8"x12" test print and realised that it looked too "artificial". the USM setting used was:
ah..this setting is closer to what i originally guessed that would work for a print of size between A5 and A4 :light: . [my test print verified that 190/1.7/3 is indeed somewhere crossing the "upper limit" already ie too sharp ;-) ]Astin said:Typically I set the amount to 80%-150%...
For raduis typically I set to 0.5-1.0...
For threashold I set to 1.
mmm..i will take this as an arbitrary "starting point" to work on, and will use your "family love @zoo" as an arbitrary on-screen visual reference point :thumbsup: ;-)nutek said:A *generic* USM setting for web photos (640x480 or less) is:
the 300/0.5/1 for the case of without in-camera sharpening...sounds logical..looks like the main difference is the first variable (ie the %) :think:r52lanc said:For printing use 300/0.5/1 These settings assume that sharpening is set to 'normal' in the Canon 300D or 10D.
If you are resizing at all, remember that sharpening must come after resizing.
