Sharpening your photos can make a huge impact and there is no easier way to sharpen than our exclusive Photoshop actions.
To add sharpening to your photo, simply click on one of the eight included sharpening actions and press play. The sharpening effect will be instantly added to your photo non-destructively. Feel free to increase the amount of sharpening by stacking different actions together.
To lower the amount of sharpening on an image, lower the opacity of the sharpen layer, or change the high pass radius.
The included PHLEARN Sharpen Custom action allows you to choose your own level of sharpening.
Here are some tips and tricks for sharpening your images
Selective Sharpen – to sharpen one are of your image, simply add a layer mask to the sharpen layer, and paint black where you don’t want to be sharpened.
Stack Sharpening – Stack multiple layers of sharpening together for more effect. You can even do multiple layers of the same action, for instance use two +0.125 Sharpen actions.
Resize before sharpening – For maximum impact, be sure to resize your photos before sharpening. If you sharpen a full-size photo and then scale it down for the web, your sharpening will also scale down, diminishing the effect.
After installation, double-click on the PHLEARN Sharpen Actions.
The sharpening effect will be instantly applied to your photos. Choose one of eight preset values for sharpening or apply custom sharpening with the PHLEARN Sharpen Custom action.
Quick Tip: Duplicate the sharpen layer for more effect, or lower the opacity for less.
