Default Adjusting Sharpness

Last, sharpen your photo. From the top menu bar, select "Enhance," then "Adjust Sharpness." A new window will open. Choose a percentage to sharpen (generally between 5% and 12% works well). (See Photo 1.)

You can click and unclick the preview image for a quick "before-and-after" comparison. When you're happy, click "OK."

Again, try using higher and higher percentages to get a feel for too much. When you start seeing white glows around the lines of your photo (a stamped image, for example), you've gone too far.

The second photo shows what the project looks like with too much sharpening. The third photo shows a lesser version of too much.
