edge sharpen vs. sharpen in Aperture
Feb 22, 2008

I just wanted to throw something out there.

The Aperture manual advises that users prefer the newer Edge Sharpen utility, and claim the Sharpen utility is present only for compatibility with older versions of the software.

Frankly, I am wondering where this is coming from. Edge Sharpen to my amateur eyeball seems to have little teeth, though its impact is discernable, sometimes barely,in shots that are pretty sharp to begin with.

But I must say that nothwithstanding Apple's advice I am starting to get more use of the coarser Sharpen utility, which seems to behave similarly to Ps' Smart Sharpen command. It isn't a miracle worker, no denoiser or sharpener is, but I must admit that when I activate a Sharpen command I want to seem something in image pretty clearly, especially if the image is less than perfect and really could use it.

Any one else get use out Sharpen in preference to Edge Sharpen? Any thoughts in general?

Les
