Use Unsharp to Sharp

Please, sweat the small stuff. Cameron Moll has some good advice for Photoshop artists on the use of Unsharp Mask to compensate for the problems of interpolation in resized images. It’s such a basic thing, yet I’ve been overlooking that step for years.

    The photos we use for printing in the newspaper have a tendency to lose clarity due to the quality of the paper our printing shop uses. Unsharp mask has been pretty indispensible to increase definition in the photos, although admittedly we usually have to overdo it just to get any sort of impact after printing. But it’s a great little tool!
