    Photoshop CC Key Features: 3. Smart Sharpen upgrade

    The Unsharp Mask has always been the sharpening tool of choice. But it’s tricky to use, resulting in halos and unwanted artefacts.

    Now the Smart Sharpen filter has been updated to provide a solid, easy-to-use tool.

    The filter manages to avoid the halo effect produced by Unsharp Mask to a large degree, largely through a watered-down scale.

    A radius of the maximum 500% will still produce a workable image, where in Unsharp Mask it would look totally degraded.

    There are pop-ups to select whether to remove Lens Blur, Motion Blur or Gaussian Blur, and a slider to remove artefact noise created by the filter.

    Significantly, there are also controls to reduce the sharpening effect in the highlights and the shadows, areas where noise is especially prone to appearing.
