Image sharpening is great for enhancing texture and drawing a viewer’s focus. Our new photo editing tutorial video teaches on the different methods of sharpening available in Exposure.

There are several reasons to add sharpening to your photos at various stages in your workflow. Applications of sharpening can be categorized into three flavors: capture sharpening, creative sharpening, and output sharpening. Each type serves a specific purpose during post processing.

Our photo editing tutorial demonstrates how to use Exposure to apply sharpening at different processing stages. The video shows which sharpening technique to apply, what it does, and when to use it. And it explains how to properly adjust the effect controls and get great-looking results.
