Is that set to Luminosity mode. ???..If so I have used that before but found for portraits its a bit too strong.

Would be interested to hear what sharpening methods others use for portraits.

Having a nice holiday Barrie...all over tan???

Are you on the windy side??
That's a bit personal Grin Grin Grin

If you mean Gran Canaria, no. The Airport area and North can be breezier but the south around Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles is not as breezy and considerably hotter than the north (yet strangely, they always quote the temperatures in Las Palmas - the island capital). It's been around 25 to 27 in the last few days.

Apologies for going way off topic Smile

Thanks for the sharpening suggestion Paul, and Sam. It would be really interesting to see both tried side by side to see of there is any difference with our before and after feature you could then flick back and forth to see what happens. I know Paul's uploads of late have been outstanding so I know his method works. And I know Sam's a really knowledgeable guy - if still a little/lot (delete as appropriate) arrogant. So which one is best.

There's only one way to find out...

Whilst I use HP sharpening for various processes, with regard to portraits, I have not considered it for web preparation.
After resizing for web, I normally use a low amount of usm, or the Photokit Sharpener plug-in, which allows localised sharpening.
It's always good to read about new ways for sharpening - moreso when the process works with certain disciplines more than others, so I appreciate Paul taking the time to share his processing techniques, and for mentioning some of the different uses.

Interesting post, but I do the majority of my sharpening in Camera raw with possibly a little USM in Photoshop after, which is the best way?
