Lightroom Presets – Sharpening for Landscape and Outdoor Photos

By Matt Kloskowski  //  Presets  //  2 Comments
   

I always get a lot of questions about sharpening in Lightroom and what settings to use. Well, if there’s ever a place where presets work great, sharpening is one of them. For the first round of sharpening presets, I figured I’d create a set specifically for landscape and outdoor photos. You’ll find these presets work best on photos where you want just about everything sharp (something that’s typical for landscape photos). You’ll notice there’s 3 different versions in this one. It really just depends on the photo and how much extra “detail” it can handle. Some can handle a lot of detail and look great with the Strong setting, while other photos will tend to get that crunchy look and use the Light setting better.

Don’t forget that you need to zoom in to at least 100% to see the effects of any sharpening on your photos in Lightroom.

Hope you enjoy. Have a good one!
