I have been given a bunch of old pictures & asked to enhance them. Changing levels, & using autofix works for most of them but many of them also need sharpening.
The sharpening tool 'unsharp' works well on most areas of the picture expect for the sky where it can make very obvious artifacts.
What is the best way to fix the skys? I could possible start with the magic want & then some blur or is there a better way?
Thanks in advance
There are better ways. Here
the free Return to Eden cloud brushes from Adobe Studio Exchange.
To use these, set the foreground color chip to white, click to apply them - don't paint
A good light sky color is C7D7EA. A good darker sky color is 628DC0 (zero)
Thanks for that. Even though I have been familiar with using PSE for a few years I had never heard of, or looked at Adobe Exchange. Perhaps because I know that not 100% of Adobe features aren't always available to people living outside North America. We often miss out especially on product prices. For instance in OZ where I live we have to pay considerable more to buy software even though our dollar is worth more than yours.
I have gone to Exchange & downloaded the brush file. I have yet to work out where I paste the download into but I expect that it will be in the same folder that has the same extension.
Thanks again for the help
