    Sharpening?

    I am a long time photog changing workflow as NX2 is no longer usable.

    I have been spending time in LR and I am very comfortable in PS - but compared to NX2, always felt out of place with the Adobe sharpening tools.

    I'm looking for more advanced and localized sharpening.

    Are you guys using LR/PS for ALL your sharpening or just the basic and use something else for FINAL sharpening?

    Or do you use something else altogether?

    I use Photoshop or Topaz..............
    I have an advanced degree in procrastination and another one in paranoia.

    I use Unsharp Mask, or a High Pass Filter, both in Photoshop.

    I've also started learning some of the Topaz software lately and like it a lot; comes with a learning curve, though.

    The closest thing you'll find to what you've been used to is the Nik Tools have 2 Sharpeners... The Sharpener Pro 3 lets you do selected sharpening via its Control Points...

    I use Gimp (basically a freeware version of PS). It's easy to select an area you want sharpened and then use the Unsharp Tool (adjustable) to sharpen.

    I mostly use PS unsharp mask. Nik Tools is free and as @FredKingston pointed out it does a nice selective sharpening via control points.

    Thanks for all the comments - I have Nik and I am used to it - I wa snot sure there was a standalone tool that might do a better job.
