Sharpen And Resize Photos For The Web

Wanna make your web images look their best? Then you need a good resize and sharpening method! I’ve tried quite a few and discovered there’s a lot more to it than just shrinking down an image and applying a quick bit of sharpening. You need to know the proper bit depth, color space, resize method, and even what corrections will be needed AFTER you resize. The right combination makes a huge difference and this video shows you how!

    Hi Perry,

    Thanks for this great tip in resizing and sharpening. But this also apply to upsizing a picture instead of downsizing? What is the best method to prepare a picture for printing on big gallery print format?

    Hi Steve

    Great tips, I prefer your method and action vs using a plugin such as Nikk . Your method for me makes all the difference in web quality output.

    It would be nice if you would do a video for sharpening at printing. I do my own printing on an epson pro 3880, and I am always using LR6.8 for sharpening. I am a retiree and photography is my main hobby.

    Thanks again
