How To Create Sharper Image For Your Blog
I have been struggling lately with an issue regarding my images. Luckily i was able to learn this quick and easy tip for creating a sharper image for your blog and because I am a nice girl 🙂 i will share this with you today…
But any way…while i was searching on some photography tips i found some cool Photoshop tutorials and one of them i want to share with you today.
We all know that image taken with DLSR camera is huge and it needs to be compressed to the correct size (it all depends on your template content width). There are many plugins out there which automatically optimize your images to help your blog speed. There are other plugins where the settings allows you to type your preferred image size and after each upload the image automatically reduces its size. I prefer to do it manually…
After we compress our images they can loose some of their quality, so i am going to share with you this Photoshop tip on how to get a sharper image after you have reduced the photo size.
- First you need to upload your image on Photoshop and change the image size ( or if you don’t want to use the image for blogging purposes just skip this step)
Go to Image -> Image Size
After you have changed the pixels of the image, the picture will appear a lot smaller on the screen. But don’t worry…this is completely normal as the size of the image is reduced.
- What is the next step…You need to create the a sharper image now 🙂
Go to Filter -> Sharpen -> click on Unsharpen Mask
I usually leave the Radius and the Treshold on the levels shown above. With the Amount you can play around. I leave mine on 65% as higher you go the image become sharper and does not look as nice. But you can always change it depending on you personal preferences.
Click OK and than you are done! This is very easy Photoshop tip on how to create sharp photo. Hope it was helpful !
P.S. Let me know if you have any suggestions on why my images appear fuzzy after i publish my post. Thanks!
