Photoshop Sharpening EXPLAINED – Smart Sharpen


In this short video series I’ll be explaining the various ways you can sharpen an image in Photoshop. Those ways include the Unsharp Mask, Smart Sharpen, and High Pass Sharpening. In this video, I explain the Smart Sharpen. I also explain how to use a Smart Object so you can readjust your sharpening.
