Is any sharpening applied at present? I don't think so. Yes we definitely need this option.

I don't know, Mark. But seeing the options Pekka listed, I missed the "none" option. :)

Hi Levina. Agreed, I don't think there is any now but you are correct: No "none" option for the new system.

Option "low" will work essentially as "none".

- all the sharpening processes are of highest quality USM. There are no halos or artifacts.

- Sharpening is needed to overcome the inevitable blur of the downsizing and return the look of to the original (which is why the "low" is not default method). "low" is pretty much equal to "restore" and not "sharpen". The downsizing before sharpening is also very high quality, but as seen here, some sharpening is required.

I did days of testing for different algorithms and I assure you that word "oversharpened" was not in my to do list.

I could have easily renamed "low" to "none" and keep quiet about it and nobody had noticed :). But I want to be clear of what is done there.

EDIT: and of course: sharpening is only applied on downsizing. If you upload a file equal or smaller than the "downsize to" setting, the file will not be passed though USM at all, unless you have set "apply always".

Yes. Edited the title to make it clearer.

My concern comes from the fact that for my bird shots none of the out of focus areas are sharpened. And the bird only slightly and even then usually only in places. I worry about steel cables instead of feathers and I worry about increased noise, because even though I do run noise reduction on the out of focus areas I rarely do so on the bird. But fair enough, your explanation sounds good. Besides, if we go from 1280px to 1600px, most times I will be able to upload/embed exactly in that bigger size so there will be no need for any downsizing. Thanks!

Post or PM me a link to some larger than 1600 original what you would upload and consider as "problem image" in regarding to sharpening quality, and I'll send you links to (or post links here if you let me) all 4 sharpened versions of it, both 1280 and 1600 size. I'll do that in couple of days, not right away.

That sounds good. Thanks for the clarification Pekka.

Pekka, I just sent you a pm.

[EDIT: removed link to flickr as image is no longer there]

By the way, flickr is a nice example of how to not downsize images. The display size of my images at flickr is 1600px. So a 2048px is downsized but the sharpening they apply when downsizing is simply too much. The differences between flickr's 1600px display size and the same display size on my computer is very distinct.
