Does Lightroom’s Sharpening & Noise Reduction STINK?


In this tutorial, I demo and compare Lightroom’s sharpening and noise reduction to Topaz Labs Photo AI to Topaz Labs Denoise AI. Note that I should have, in the video, added some texture and clarity to the Green Heron although, I will say, doing it later, although it helped sharpen up the bird, it still was no where near as good a the other two images.
