Sharpening and Noise Reduction in the Detail Panel in Lightroom 3
(The Lightroom video tutorial in this post is just under the introductory text below. The working files for this Lightroom video tutorial can be found just above the video.)
The Detail Panel contains some extremely important image adjustments. Sharpening and Noise Reduction are mission critical image adjustments especially when it comes to getting images to come out well in print.
In this Lightroom video tutorial we will be going over the basics of each of the Sharpening and Noise Reduction sliders and features in the Lightroom Develop Module Detail Panel. There is quite a bit of important information here, so the video is a bit longer, but should prove quite useful.
