I was wandering around the internet today during some downtime, when I came across this great tutorial on sharpening your photos in Lightroom. Part 1 gives a great explanation on how each of the sharpening tools in the develop module work. I was also made aware of some key combinations that give you a preview mode which I wasn’t aware of. Part 2 explains export sharpening in Lightroom. The 2 parts put together, describe how to get sharp looking photos coming out of Lightroom. Of course, this assumes your focus was right when you took the picture in the first place. No amount of sharpening will save a bad photo! If you’ve wanted to better understand sharpening in Lightroom, then I definitely recommend checking out these 2 well written tutorials.
