Topaz Studio - Sharpen Adjustment


UnSharp Mask.

The Unsharp Mask is a quick and effective way to recover image sharpness without magnifying image noise. Much like traditional sharpening tools, the adjustment utilizes an unsharpening mask to enhance details. What makes this tool unique is the threshold slider, which ensures you get the perfect combination of image sharpness and noise reduction.

DeBlur brings back the original crispness to photographs. This adjustment mathematically recovers image sharpness through the blind deconvolution process. DeBlur has the ability to analyze images and, based upon the output image, can make educated guesses on the intended input image which results in restoring the image to what was seen through the viewfinder.
