Tip – Using the Detail Panel for Spots

First off, I wanted to thank everyone for their comments on the Sharpening Workflow video I did the other day. There’s some good follow-up questions to answer that I’ll get to early next week. Now on to the tip: The Detail panel’s preview (in the Develop module) was created to give you a 100% (1:1) view of your image, so you can really see the effects of your sharpening adjustments. But it’s also great to keep it open when you’re removing spots, because you leave the main image at “Fit in Window” size, and still see the area you’re fixing up close in the Detail panel’s preview.
