Lightbulb Canon DPP lesson learned.

OK so I was initially disappointed when I got 2 photos rejected for oversharpened. So I wondered if I'm jumping the gun early when I begin the sharpening passes in my workflow.

So went back from scratch and removed RGB sharpening in DPP on the RAW image, and only sharpened on the final jpg pass and presto! Accepted, and just as noticeable (to me at least) is the sharpness on the final result is as I intended.

Chalk another one up for the screeners , and more notes in the notebook.

Shooting with my Rebel XT, these settings usually get me started before exporting to TIF and doing USM, Saturation, and Contrast adjustments in PaintShop Pro.

Shoot raw - the amount of sharpness you can get out of the "RAW Image Adjustment" vs. the "RGB Image Adjustment" will blow your mind.

Yes Nick, I agree absolutely. I had been just foolin' around with hitting it with RGB just to add a touch, but it's not as noticeable as raw, and I've found that on 100% of the few times I got rejected for oversharpened, it was when I got heavy on the RGB sharpening. Just something I noticed.
