Soft Light Sharpening

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I don't t know if this is a bug or not, but when I compare soft light sharpening done in Photoshop to Affinity Photo their's a strong difference.

 

Soft light sharpening for those who don't know is where you apply a high pass filter on a merged layer then set that layer to soft light to produce sharpening that does an amazing job of pulling out details that normal sharpening does not.

 

In Photoshop the impact is much more strong than Photo where it is barely noticeable. I can't seem to replicate the effect in Photo which is a frustrating as it's part of my workflow.

 

Thoughts?

 

Thanks!

It works fine for me. Also, after I started using Photo I stopped merging to do the high pass layer as in Photo I simply add a live filter. My workflow is more streamlined.

@verysame When you say it works fine for you, have you noticed the difference between Photoshop and Photo with soft light sharpening? I'm not saying it doens't work, but that it has little effect in comparison to Photoshop.

I didn't check against PS for the reason that I never noticed any particular difference about doing it in Photo, in other words, it always looked like the usual sharpening.

I'll try soon, in the meantime any chance you can post an example of the difference?

@rainwilds: for now I'd try working with High Pass live filter, much simpler to use, and include monochrome option to (to avoid colours casting), try different values etc. High Pass in PS is a PITA.

Also, I'm using overlay instead of soft light. But I'll try this approach too.

@ rain wilds: try it as TEcHNOplus described it has ,
I get comparable results with this method, in PS as well as in AP.
