Understanding image properties: wrapping up

In this first set of tutorials we covered the basic properties of an image, and how their manipulation affects the end results. We explored exposure, contrast, saturation and sharpness individually, as it is generally easier to decouple properties when studying them. But the nature of Read More …

Understanding image properties: sharpness

Today’s tutorial will cover a property called “sharpness” and how its manipulation affects an image. What is sharpness? Sharpness of an image describes its edge contrast, in other words how well defined edges are in the scene. Sharp images are clear and defined, easy for Read More …
