I don't know. I have photoshop cs. Maybe someone with elements knows. Or you could check the help list in elements and search for channels / layers.

Well, you might use an FZ20...

hey...

throw a run of USM at

Amount-20

Radius-50

Tolerance-0

before all this...and you will never get a sharper shot...seriously...it's called a "local contrast adjustment"

but it sets up for sharpening amazingly well!



nice tip tim i've tried this before...but only a couple times...

Hi Vito,

I used to do it that way too, and sometimes it works fine. But very often this blows up the noise, and you loose a lot of details in the darker area's.

50% of my photos are birds, and they all have a blurred background, so I need this technique to discard the noise from my sharpening.

grtz,
Tim
