    Capture sharpening ?

    jljonathan Level 1
      I am going to try using ACR for capture sharpening with a 1dsMkIII after regularly using PS. Does anyone have a any recommendations for initial settings to start with for this camera? And, possibly for several shooting situations ie. landscape, fine detail, portrait.
      Thanks for any suggestions

          A good starting point would be to get Martin Evening's "Photoshop CS4 for Photographers" and try out his suggested settings for various types of photograph; and read WHY he has set them that way.

            For a brief introduction, you can look at Jeff Schewe's writeup on camera raw 4.1. It is a bit dated, but many of the basics are the same:


            You could also look at his ACR book if you are merely interested in ACR:

              Thanks for the suggestions. I read the sharpening information in Evening's CS4 and looked at the 4.1 writeup. I now have a much more complete idea of how to approach this area.
