 Post subject: Photomatix softness
PostPosted: Wed Dec 09, 2009 6:10 pm 
Hi

I have started to do trials with the lastest version of photomatix, but I have noticed that, although the image is very sharp through all the process, the pictures looses considerable sharpness after you click the final "process" button.

Has anybody seen this behavior before, and do you know how not to lose sharpness when processing with photomatix?

Thanks.

I presume the preview version is very sharp due to the resizing algorithm, you will of course see more "softness" if you look 100% ;)

Hi

Yes, that is true. But both images are displayed at about 27% and the processed one looks softer that the image displayed while doing the tone mapping.

Have you experienced this too?

Yep. It makes sense once you look at the whole processing workflow, and it's the way it's "supposed to be".

Nothing wrong with the software :)

I find that adding a "Smart Sharpen" to my Tiff files in photoshop after photomatrix seems to restore sharpness.

But I know very little about why or if it's a good thing to do or not.
