Sharpener Pro 220.127.116.11
User friendly image sharpener included in the Google Nik Collection
The Sharpener Pro application is integrated in the Nik Collection developed by Google, which means that you cannot install or purchase the utility separately. To use the tool, you must download, install, and purchase the entire Nik Collection.
However, the Nik Collection software package comes with both installer and uninstaller tools, so all you have to do is follow the on screen instructions. The Sharpener Pro elements (Raw Presharpening and Output Sharpening) will be included in the Nik Collection folder created in the Applications directory.
Grants access to a collection of efficient sharpening tools upon which you have extensive control
Via the Sharpener Pro Raw Presharpening main window you have the possibility to quickly access all the available sharpening tools: you can adjust the image quality, the adaptive sharpening level, or choose to sharpen either areas or edges.
The same panel offers you the option to create multiple control points, and enables you to modify the color ranges. On the other hand, the Sharpener Pro Output Sharpening utility is designed to help you optimize the output for printing: you can apply different profiles if your printing device is inkjet, continuous tone, halftone, or hybrid.
Powerful software solution that can be used to highlight specific areas from any image
Sharpener Pro is a great tool to have around if you need to give a creative look to your images: you can easily highlight certain areas, sharpen specific elements, and so on. The best part is that Sharpener Pro comes with intuitive tools which are very easy to use even by inexperienced operators: experiment with the available customization tools and easily preview the results in real time before saving the output to your disk.
