Freeware Solution: PhotoFiltre
If you don’t have any image editing software that supports photo sharpening, one application you can download for free (for personal use only) is PhotoFiltre. While we don’t endorse any specific product, you can download the free version of PhotoFiltre from here: www.photofiltre.com. Click the “Downloads” link the left menu, pick your language, and off you go.

Once you have the software installed, open your image, and choose Filter >> Sharpen >> Sharpen More. While the sharpening quality here is not quite as good as in some commercial packages, it’s very usable considering that you didn’t have to pay a cent.

Once again, the image will look slightly over-sharpened. This is on purpose as long as we plan to resize the image (think of the billboard example again). Next, we will resize the digital photograph.

Go to Image >> Image Size… Change the middle drop down to “Percent” and type in “50” in either the “Height” or the “Width” box. As long as “Preserve Aspect Ratio” is selected, the other dimension will automatically change also. Keep the “optimize” checkbox checked, and hit “OK”.

Lastly, we will save the Image, by going to File >> Save As. We choose “JPEG” from the “Save as Type” drop-down, and save the image.

That’s it for now with the basic 101 introduction to Digital Photo Sharpening. We will be adding the next tutorial soon. Until then, look around on our site and enjoy the amazing photographs some of our members have submitted.
