A sharpness question...
Posted By: Igilligan, 02-17-2008, 01:05 PM

I had a computer crash.... so I am using an old laptop with a funky screen and a different PP program.

I am trying to give a bump of sharpening to some resized for web pics, but I am having a hard time judging if it is too much or not.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

It is my new / old vivitar 105 that I got from wildherre... It is pretty sharp, but the program I am using on this old computer softens a lot in resizing to web size. So I wanted to bump the resized shot a bit. But it only has 1 setting to bump.

I thought the second might be too much. But it is so hard to tell on this old laptop. Thanks for the feedback.

Gus, to me the first one looks spot on!! Second one seems just a bit too much - plus I think it would look better on the bottom of my shoe!!
