Ever thought of using Topaz Adjust to make a High Pass sharpen base? It is a pretty neat technique that adds a little more umph to your High Pass sharpening without over doing it. I really like the Topaz Adjust 5 interface and find myself using it more and more in my workflow in some pretty unconventional ways. Check out the before and afters, if you are interested give the video a gander. Oh, and if you haven’t purchased Topaz Adjust 5 yet, what the heck are you waiting for?!?
[warning]One thing I forgot to mention i the post. If you find the new High Pass Sharpen layer is a little extreme, click on it in the layers palette and reduce it’s Opacity until it meets your liking.[/warning]
