I’ve been testing a lot of new photo equipment in low light lately which leads me to do a lot of noise reduction and sharpening. Much of the work I’ve been doing is at really wide apertures with shallow depth of field and I’ve been thinking about ways to mitigate the blurring of noise reduction in parts of the images that are sharper and more detailed.
The New Details Pan in Develop combines sharpening and noise reduction. These two controls tend to fight each other so we put them together in the new version. Whenever adjusting sharpening or noise reduction you will always want to make sure to zoom to 100% so you can see how these adjustments are being applied to your photo. We have also improved noise reduction so you get better results and be able to control how it is applied to both luminance and color noise. The new Details Pane is going to give you the optimal sharpness and noise reduction.
I wanted to dive in and talk about the different ways to sharpen your photos using ON1. Specifically, why and when you would use the different sharpening methods.
Do you know the differences between High Pass, Progressive and Unsharp Mask Sharpening? If not, follow along and I’ll explain.
When getting your images ready to print, Sharpening is an important step. Many digital printers cause your prints to lose a small amount of detail, so sharpening can help add crispness to the edges in your images. While the concept may feel confusing, this video should help you figure out how to sharpen your images in a flash!
Get an in-depth look at all of the advanced options available inside of ON1 Develop! In Part 2, you’ll get to learn about Split Tones, Skin Retouching, Sharpening, Vignette & Transform.
Use the Noise Reduction filter in ON1 Effects with blending modes and luminosity masks to target very specific areas of your photo without elaborate masking. Watch me show you how you have ultimate noise reduction control with ON1 Photo 10.
Welcome to Day 2 of print week. A few of the questions we get a lot when it comes to printing is how much do you sharpen your photos? How about Noise Reduction? And finally, how do you soft proof? Well, today we’ve put ’em all in to one topic, and believe it or not, it’s actually much easier than it all sounds. Enjoy!
In this video, I show how to add selective sharpening to a photo with masking inside of ON1 Effects.
