Hello fellow photogs & gurus:
I've been reading the great info in the sharpening thread above but I'm more interested in hearing from you about the capabilities/workflow of only using Lightroom 4. I know that Photoshop, which I also have, has extremely powerful capabilities and that I can apply sharpening after resizing. (Resizing affects the amount of sharpening.) But I want to avoid using Photoshop as much as possible as it is quite time consuming, to me at least. I do very little printing and most photos end up for web viewing.
So normally my workflow would be:
1. Import into LR4
2. Do the sharpening on the image
3. Export, resize and set output sharpening
How well do you guys find using only LR4 for output sharpening? How much output sharpening do you guys use? Do you find there's a tremendous difference between different hosting sites like Facebook, Flickr, 500px and Google+ and what they do to your pictures? Do you downsize below each of these sites max resolution prior to upload or let the sites handle them?
Thanks in advance!
