Back to Basics: Sharpening Best Practices for Photoshop and Camera RAW

So whether you’re editing in Camera RAW or Photoshop (or even Lightroom, for that matter), the basic tips and tricks in this Photoshop Playbook tutorial will help make sure your photos don’t end up as one big artifact.

Check it out for yourself above. And if you’re one of our advanced readers, feel free to chime in with any further suggestions you might have.
