Default Re: Sharpening... last operation??

My advice would be both:

DSLRs have a low-pass filter that deliberately blurs the image captured on the CCD in order to prevent moire. You can "recover" this sharpness with some sharpening at full size.

But if you're then going on to resize for TE you should sharpen again.

Exactly how much sharpening you do at each stage varies. I use Bibble and let it handle the pre-sharpening for me, but post-sharpening varies greatly between images and desired result.

I use to pre-sharp using Rawshooter when converting raws. But then I realise that after dowsizing the picture and applying the necessary sharpening, diagonal edges in the pictures had tendancy to get jagged.
So now I'm only pre-sharpening in Rawshooter if I want to keep the original size for the final picture.

I do agree that post-sharpenin do vary greatly depending on the picture I'm working on. Somtime, I only sharpen some areas on the picture instead of the whole picture (what the point of sharpening bokeh).
I use Luko's technique (for those who remember it) to sharpen most of my size reduced shots.

I actually don't remember Luko's technique... but I asked manny about his workflow and he mentioned it.

Could you provide a link or overview?

- edit/fade USM, 100%, darken blend mode.

Edition > estomper accentuation puis dans la fenêtre qui apparaît, laisser l'opacité a 100% et changer le mode sur obscurcir

L'option estomper accentuation dans le menu edition, n'apparaît qu'aprés avoir appliquer l'accentuation.

Final sharpening should always be done at the intended output size after resizing down.
