Control Points

How do I use Control Points to sharpen my images?

In Sharpener Pro 3.0 you can now use Control Points to selectively sharpen an image. A Control Point enables you to selectively sharpen objects or areas with control over each object or area selected by a Control Point. To use a control point, do the following:

  1. In the Sharpener Pro 3.0 interface, select Control Points in the drop-down menu of the Selective Sharpening section.
  2. Click on the ‘Add Control Point’ button and then click on an object or area in the image that you wish to apply selective sharpening to.
  3. Each Control Point enables you to work with you images and selectively control and adjust the sharpening applied to object or area selected by the Control Point.
  4. Use additional Control Points to sharpen other areas or objects in your image.
