When sharpening in Lightroom, how do you know when to stop as to avoid loss of detail? Is there a trick to know how much is enough without overcooking?
Just go by how it looks. On birds, if the individual fibers of a feather start to stand out, you've gone too far. I know that's a popular look, but to me, if you can't see it with the naked eye, it shouldn't show in a photograph either.
