An In-Depth Discussion on Image Sharpening
Skill Level:
Beyond Basic
Paul Nelson
Recommended Prerequisites:
We strongly recommend having a basic knowledge of Adobe Lightroom from our Editing in Adobe Lightroom Classic class


You’ve taken an amazing photograph: The color is exquisite, the composition is spot on, and it is tack sharp. Or maybe you’ve got the first two things going for you, but the focus is just so-so. In both of these cases, image sharpening–the process of creating contrast on the edges of detail– is important to consider and understand.
And yet, sharpening is also one of the most difficult editing tools to understand and master. Because it’s based on fine detail, image sharpening isn’t always easy to notice when applying it. Often, over-sharpening can occur which can have negative effects on your image.
This class will help get you on the right track to proper sharpening. We’ll discuss the basics of image sharpening, including what images will benefit from it, and what standard changes to make in Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Camera RAW. We will also discuss the role other programs, such as Topaz Sharpening AI, play in the process.

Registering and what is needed
After you register for this class, you will receive a confirmation email that will include information about how to access the online class, including an online ID code that you will need to get into the class. Make sure to save this information. We will also send a reminder email about 24 hours prior to the class time with that same information.

Layout of the class
The class will begin promptly at the time listed. The majority of the class–roughly 1 hour– will be a presentation on the topic, followed by a short Q&A. During the class, you are welcome to type in questions in the Chat box if you have specific questions as they are asked. We will do our best to answer those questions, but if not, feel free to ask them at the end.

“You Are Being Recorded” (And Other Note Related Items)
We will be recording this class! The video will be available for download about 24-hours after the class for all attendees, so don’t worry about taking unending notes. We will send this link attendees to download and rewatch at any time. In addition to this, we will generally send out a PDF of the presentation (when applicable) and handouts on the topic. If handouts and PDFs are included, we will send it out with the link for the video.

Can’t attend the class?
If you can’t attend the class but still want to download the video, no problem: Just sign up for the class! You don’t need to attend and we will send the video and PDF link the next day!
