Sharpening and resizing for print-again


sorry I keep coming back to this but I don't print very often and am easily confused!

Martin said to resize in Imageprint (which I will be using to print) but Im not sure what to do about sharpening as thats supposed to be done at the print final size isn't it?

So I am trying to resize the image, in this case to 9x6 inches but it west the pip to 640 or something instead of 360 which the Epson is supposed to have.
once Id managed to size to print size I was going THEN to sharpen and save to my 9x6 imaheprint folder

Any advice on how best to resize (and sharpen) please

Re: Sharpening and resizing for print-again


My work flow for output sharpening is...

After all editing is done -

Duplicate image
Flatten all layers
Resize for desired output size @ 360ppi
Duplicate background Layer
Apply High Pass Sharpen (Radius 1.9) and change Blend Mode to Hard Light
Apply White Mask to Sharpen Layer and Paint in Black where you do not want the effect (skies etc)
Then Print

Put a tick in the Resample checkbox, then enter 360 into the ppi box and then resize to your desired size

I have found the a radius of 1.9 is a nice balance between producing contrast / edge sharpening with no halos around hard edges

The above. Or buy a copy of Qimage for pips, and the thing will do it for you.
