currently photolab compensates for optical defects, notably sharpness defects related to optics, demosaicing, etc. (pre sharpening)
the output sharpness depending on the medium (paper, screen, etc…) is of course dependent on each medium, image size, etc…
this output sharpness is currently being processed by nik sharpener pro.
would it be possible to integrate it into photolab (raw flow) to apply it directly when exporting photos instead of having to go through nik sharpener pro (or lightroom for my part which does this very well)
I therefore make a request to integrate the tools managing the sharpness of “output” in the photolab export module
Thanks Greg. The results of “bicubic sharper” are not bad but too my taste too strong. At the moment I need to use another software (e.g. Rawtherapee) for resizing the export jpegs. The workflow would be better with a sharpening slider in DXO PL.
There is no way in PhotoLab to sharpen an image for various outputs when exporting.
I don’t always edit images with the NikCollection where Sharpener Pro 3 is included. So it would be really great to have a similar function built into PhotoLab to keep the workflow consistent.
Not only that. It would be great if the really powerful possibilities, offered by the plug in “Sharpener Pro 3 Output Sharpening” of the NikCollection, were available in the export dialog of PL4. After all, there are different uses for exported images.
View Point is now also available as a stand alone plug-in in the NikCollection (Perspective Efex). So why not go the other way around?
I agree on the desirability of this. DxO’s sharpening is really good in how it prevents artifacts, and it would be nice to apply it when exporting resized images. I’m currently using a command-line script to batch sharpen resized images using ImageMagick.
ImageMagick is a suite of command-line tools for image processing. It includes the convert command which has -resize, -adaptive-resize, -sharpen, and -adaptive-sharpen commands. You can write a script that iterates through your exposed files and does a combination of resizing and sharpening that looks pleasing to your eye.
I’m happy to answer questions here or you can message me directly.
