Focal blade Ver 2 Auto Sharpening
Posted: Thu Apr 22, 2010 9:52 pm
I recently installed Focal Blade version 2 on my computer. I also have version 1.07 on my computer. I am using Focal Blade with Adobe Photoshop CS4 32 and 64 bit version. When I sharpen images with version 2 they appear nosier than with version 1.07. I think this is because version 2 does not automatically adjust the radius slider like version 1.07 did. The radius slider always stays at a value of 1. When I copy the values for sharpening amount and the radius slider values, I get from version 1.07 into version 2 the sharpened images look about the same. With version 1.07 the radius slider would change depending on the image and the image size being printed (8x 10, 13 x 19, etc.). I have gone back to version 1.07 because I liked what focal blade would use for the radius slider and I would adjust the sharpening amount (more or less sharpening). Version 2 images usually appear nosier because this slider stays at value of 1.
