How to Fix an Over Sharpened Image

Sharpening an image will make it pop out, and there are various sharpening tools or softwares available today which will help you to sharpen your images to such an extent that will even beat the image quality of a high end digital camera. However, this will not be the actual sharpness, and that’s why you cannot sharpen a blurred image. These softwares sharpen images by increasing the contrast of adjacent pixels. So it will give an illusion that the image is sharp.

Why Not Use RAW Format In Your Photography?
Digital cameras normally deliver your image in JPEG format after compressing the image inside the processor. When you edit the JPEG image on your computer and resave it, you introduce artifacts into the image. These will detract from the overall quality and be clearly visible when viewing your image at high resolution. When you set your camera to deliver your image in RAW format, then you will eliminate compression artifacts and the higher quality of your image will be clearly visible.

Simple photo edit tutorial: Easy fix for dark or underexposed photos
It’s such a disappointment to upload photos to your computer and realize they’re dark and underexposed. This happens often when you shoot on AUTO – today’s cameras do a pretty good job with exposure, but even the smartest camera can get confused. It doesn’t know whether the person you’re photographing is supposed to have a light or dark skin tone, so photos of lighter skinned people often end up too dark. And when there’s a lot of light behind your subject you’re almost guaranteed a dark, underexposed image. To make matters worse, photos look even darker when printed than they do on our bright computer screens (turn down your monitor’s brightness to help fix this discrepancy).
