Our Upscale Sharpen actions bring out fine sharpness and detail from images that are generally well-focused but lacking crispness at the pixel level.
With Photoshop CC, Adobe introduced a great new detail-preserving upsampling method. It didn't take us long to realize that our unique upsampling-sharpening-downsampling strategy first employed in our popular dSLR Fractal Sharpen actions set could be used with this new Photoshop method - but without the need for an expensive 3rd party resampling program!
The sharpening done with our Upscale Sharpen actions is an ultra-fine edge and detail extraction process that delivers unprecedented crispness with almost no artifacts. You can create an image that's truly sharper and more refined looking than the results from any other sharpening tool. Look at our examples below (or eMail us an image of your own, which we will be happy to sharpen for you) and see for yourself that the results are astonishingly clean and professional!
What do the actions in Upscale Sharpen actually do?
They upsample your image behind the scenes, process it for the cleanest, most refined edge and detail appearance, then downsample it back to original size. You have the choice of light, medium, and heavy levels of sharpening, each with four levels of noise immunity. Each action can be invoked with a single keystroke or mouse click.
The following actions to be applied after running one of the actions above:
These are professional quality actions - macro operations that are loaded into Adobe® Photoshop® CC - producing top quality results you can print, publish on the web, or use in further operations. They work great on PCs and Macintoshes alike, and come with a money-back guarantee.
The actions in Upscale Sharpen work on 8 bit-per-channel or 16 bit-per-channel images in any mode (RGB, grayscale, CMYK, Lab, etc.).
We may be refining the actions or adding handy new features to Upscale Sharpen from time to time. Your purchase entitles you to free updates.
Upscale Sharpen Action Examples
We have prepared a full-sized sharpened image for you to look over. As above, we started with a Canon EOS-40D exposure captured as a raw file, then converted it using Adobe Camera Raw directly to an upsampled resolution of 5832 by 3888 pixels (22.7 megapixels upsampled from the camera's native 10.1 megapixel size) - a process that would normally result in an image lacking in fine detail. We then subjected the image to the Hvy Sharp Med ISO action from the Upscale Sharpen set, and saved the result as a JPEG.
How are these actions better than using other sharpening methods?
Because these actions work on upsampled images behind the scenes, when sharpening a big image the process can use a large amount of computer resources and take a few moments to complete.
