    Default sharpening values with LR import

    Hello, With my D800 the default sharpening and noise reduction is always the same. But with the Z6 files, this is a different amount. Depeninding on the IDO setting? Even de noise reduction is changed, want LR import doesn't do with the D800 files. Strangly, the radius is always 2.0. Isn't this...

    Excessive sharpening on CR2 import

    Hello! From day 1 when I bought my new Canon 80D camera last year I've been having problems in lightroom with photos in RAW format. Whenever I import a photo, Camera RAW automatically applies sharpening on it. That sharpening does not completely go away if I put sharpen slider to 0. On photos...

    Sharpening + Lens Corrections = Moire

    I've had an issue with moire in some of my exported photos last night. I finally tracked down some discussion elsewhere that resulted in finding a solution, albeit one that doesn't make me happy. It turns out that I could remove the moire by either turning off all sharpening or turning off lens...

    Using masking while sharpening within a radial Filter

    Export to JPEG - sharpening?

    Hi, I could not find an answer in Victoria's book or in video tutorials: when I want to export my sideshow as JPEGs, I can choose the quality and size, but what about output sharpening? Is it not necessary as it is in the normal export dialogue? I am converting my raws to DNG during import...

    Sharpen Question

    Is initial import into lightroom with a preset applying both Noise and Sharpening a good practice or a good idea ~ I've seen some indications that this is OK but it seems to me that it runs the risk of also sharpening the Noise.Anyone got experience or thoughts on this, guidance would be...

    Sharpening - a technical question

    I generally do my capture sharpening in LR with a small value of sharpening (~25) and a reasonable sized mask (~50) depending on the subject. Then I want to do some creative sharpening on parts of the photo, so I move to the adjustment brush. Even with Automask engaged, I often slop over the...
