Unsharp Mask Tool Explained In Under 2 Minutes

Did you know that you can use the Unsharp Mask Tool to make details 'pop' in your images?

| Adobe Photoshop


In under two minutes, YouTuber Run N Gun has explained exactly why you need to start using the Unsharp Mask tool in Photoshop (if you're not already). 

The Unsharp Mask tool makes it really easy to sharpen your photographs so detail 'pops' and your photos just, well, look better. 

As we're all short on time nowadays, the tutorial breaks down the Unsharp Mask tool in less than the time it'll probably take you to boil a kettle so there's no excuse for not hitting play on the video tutorial. 

The Unsharp Mask tool, called so because of how it sharpens images (the video explains this), has three main sliders for applying the effect - Amount, Radius and Threshold all of which are explained in the tutorial.
