This chapter is from the book


I can't tell you how many photos I've tossed because they've ended up slightly out of focus. The Sharpen tool won't necessarily salvage photos that are fuzzy due to camera shake or the motion of the picture's subject, it can help with images that are slightly soft. Even photos that look fine can sometimes benefit from a small amount of sharpening.

  1. Click the Sharpen tool in the sidebar.
  2. Click an edit tile to adjust the amount of sharpening to be applied, or drag the slider for finer adjustments (Figure 4.37).
    Figure 4.37

    Figure 4.37 Sharpen the image.

  3. The edit tiles display just a zoomed-in portion of your image so you can get a better idea of how much sharpening is being applied. That portion is designated by a green box in the image. Drag it anywhere in the photo to spotlight that section in the tiles.
  4. Click the green Save button (the checkmark) to apply the setting.
