    Hi, Im new to lightroom I normally process with PS CS6. if I sharpen an image in lightroom and then export the image and select sharpen for screen in the dialogue box will lightroom ignore the sharpening i have already done or add extra sharpening to the image.

    thank you

    Gary

    Do you mean "will lightroom ignore the sharpening " or "will CS6 ignore the sharpening"?

    Also, are you talking about exporting to JPEG or exporting as TIFF?

    No

    Yes.
    It also takes into account the size you have specified in the export dialogue box

    Ah...was reference to CS6 a (unintended) red herring?
    If so, I agree with JJGEE: you will get 2 lots of sharpening.

    Thank you very much for the simple explanation I appreciate it, is the general consensus not to sharpen in lightroom and to use just the export dialogue (I only really use images for online viewing)

    I would say do your sharpening in LR and see if you need more during export - you will then have your 'on screen quality' image and from there you can have different export settings for FB, email, EPZ etc depending on what the site engine does to the image. One useful feature of LR is you can create 'virtual copies': one soft focus, one B&W etc and each may need different levels of sharpening

    Obviously you can journey through Lightroom without sharpening at all if it's your wish (better stay away from the clarity slider in that caseSmile). Lightroom accommodates a 3-stage sharpening workflow for those that find need for it: capture sharpening, creative sharpening, and output sharpening. The middle of the three most commonly refers to localised sharpening, which is possible through the adjustment brush of course (although some might prefer using Photoshop layers).
