    when to sharpen in camera raw?

    Steve Zeeeee Level 1
      Folks, Is it common procedure to use camera raw to pre sharpen images that you will work over for print, for web? If for web, has anyone found some good numbers? How about for print, or maximum enlargement, tho I know that's way variable. I guess I am looking for the thinking that helps make these decisions. How about after working a file, save to tiff, and then sharp in camera raw for final output instead of smart sharpen?

      Thanks much

          Really only since Camera Raw 4.1 and above would one really want to do capture sharpening...since you don't mention the CR version, there needs to be that qualification.

          As far as the numbers, that all depends on the capture source and the image type. Pretty difficult (read impossible) to give ANY general numbers beyond the defaults...

          As far as any further sharpening, that really needs to be done in Photoshop.
