Sharpen Your Images in Photoshop

how to Photoshop sharpen images tutorial Uncategorized

I loved this photo I took of my daughter at the park, but it was too soft. I didn't want to toss it, so I decided I'd just sharpen in in Photoshop. Before I show you the quick and easy steps I used to sharpen my image, check out the Before and After.

Just use the slider on the image below to see the transformation.

Step 1: Duplicate the Background Layer

I simply right click on the background layer in the Layers Palette and choose Duplicate Layer to create a new copy of the layer on top of my original layer.

With the new layer selected (highlighted) choose Filter > Other > High Pass to open the High Pass Filer Adjustments.
