How to Create a Crisp Look
In this episode I cover the best ways to sharpen your images for the web using the Unsharp Mask and High Pass filter in different blend modes. These effects can also be used to soften an image creating a focal point. The best way to know how much or little to add depends on the resolution, so its always a good idea to edit them based on the size they will be viewed later.
