Developer's Description

Sharpening an image enhances the overall visual impression of that image, and is an essential step in creating a good digital print. Nik Sharpener Pro 3.0 offers features and controls necessary to achieve optimal sharpness in any image. This tool simplifies the process by providing you with controls that are both easy to use and understand. Nik Software has designed Nik Sharpener Pro 3.0 as a powerful, easy to use tool that fits easily into your digital work flow, taking over the complicated process of optimal image sharpening and providing you with an application that is easy to understand and use. Nik Sharpener Pro 3.0 replaces the need for complicated and impractical sharpening methods currently available within most image editing applications, and takes into consideration all of the key elements of a printed image in order to provide you with optimal sharpening. Traditional sharpening methods, such as Unsharp Mask or High-Pass based sharpening, are not easy to use and typically ask the user to base the sharpening process on results as displayed on the monitor. While this method works well for images intended to be viewed on a monitor, it is less than adequate for other media. Effective image sharpening must take into consideration a number of variables before sharpening, from the characteristics of detail in the image, to the intended media, to the circumstances surrounding the viewer and viewing distance. Nik Sharpener Pro 3.0 identifies the key elements that comprise the image in its final form in order to produce an optimal level of sharpening.
