Example of Oversharpening

Uploaded: October 16, 2001

Description

I tried to resurrect this blurry picture by using the Unsharp Mask filter in Photoshop. It still suffers, though, just in a different way. This was greatly oversharpened (490 percent). As a general guideline, it is a good idea to sharpen no more than 50%.

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


 

The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
