After applying capture sharpening and creative sharpening, the on-screen image will typically look sharp. However, you can use the output sharpening for screen option to counteract any softening effects caused by downsizing images for the web or email.
- Select the image variant or variants in the browser.
- Highlight the recipe to edit from the list in the Process Recipes dialog (or create a new recipe) located under the Output tool tab.
- From the Basic tab, set the image size using the Resolution/Scale options as desired.
- Enable Recipe Proofing.
- Go to the Adjustments tab in the Process Recipe tool.
- In the Sharpening fly-out menu, select Output Sharpening for Screen.
- The tab’s tools will change to replicate those found under the Details tool tab and include sliders for Amount, Radius, and Threshold.
- Adjust the sliders or specify the value and evaluate the effects on-screen (while soft-proofing) at 100%. Set the radius and threshold if necessary, then adjust the amount. When halo artifacts or aliasing become visible or distracting, lower the radius and/or amount until they are acceptable.
- The settings are automatically saved so they can be used again, however, it is recommended that they are saved as a component of a new recipe so that they are not overwritten accidentally.
