In part one of this series, we discussed various ways to tweak your images in Lightroom, to help make them appear sharper. I warned against over-sharpening, mentioned the importance of shooting RAW files instead of JPEGs, and what causes unsharp images.
In today’s digital photography world, image sharpness is very important. Anyone with historical photo knowledge, or anyone that grew up shooting film knows that sharpness isn’t nearly as important as composition, subject matter, exposure, and a number of other factors that make a great photograph. This doesn’t change the fact that there are pixel peepers out there, and people expect today’s images to be tack sharp. This guide will help you add the appearance of additional sharpness to your images, without going too far and producing an image that looks obviously over sharpened.
There is a way to convert presets in versions 4,5,6 and CC and get the exact original results. Following this step-by-step guide will allow you to continue using your old favorite presets without having to open older versions of Lightroom.
