About This Class


Ray shows you how to sharpen your landscape photographs using Adobe Photoshop software.
Quickly learn the professional trick to sharpen the foreground, but not the sky.

You will learn:

  • Basics of using the UNsharp Mask filter
  • How to use the Quick Selection Tool
  • Use of Layer Masks to separate land & sky
  • How to use the Reduce Noise filter to eliminate digital grain

You will need:

  • Adobe Photoshop CC (2016). However, a 30-day trial version or older version (CS4+) is okay.
  • Landscape / scenic photo with both sky and land
  • Computer & Monitor
  • 10 minutes to watch the videos (plus extra time practicing what you've learned.)
