Glancing at the title of this blog post you might assume this it’s a tutorial. It really isn’t. It’s too simple to be a tutorial. It comes down to this:
Buy Tony Kuyper’s Actions. There you go! You’re done!
There are more details to know of course. Tony’s actions are for Photoshop. You must have your image in Photoshop to use the actions. Tony has tutorials on how to load and use the actions. Read up, there’s no use in me repeating his quality instructions. At $25 it is a no brainier. Plus, you get many more versatile actions including luminosity masks and saturation masks.
There are many ways to accomplish sharpening for the web. While I believe Tony’s solution is the best, I will provide my second favorite method: Nik Software’s Sharpener Pro. I use the Complete Nik Collection on all my images and I use their sharpening program for all my printing needs. Sharpener Pro has an option for sharpening for the web, it’s very intuitive and effective.
To save 15 percent off Nik Software use the code JREZNICK.
