Welcome to part 9 of my 12-part retouching in Photoshop tutorial series! Today we’re covering sharpening and how I like to selectively sharpen. By the end of this tutorial, you will see how having the ability to apply a mask to individual smart filters would be SO nice (C’mon, Adobe!) I’ll walk you through how I use Smart Sharpen to sharpen different areas of the image and why I sharpen different areas in different ways. Not the sexiest of feature sets, but ESSENTIAL to give your image that last bit of zip to really make it look amazing. Sharpening is extremely important!
