I just bought photoshop Elements 4.0 and I'm stuck in the middle of my photo.I did the print off from the upload page, but can't find out how to reduce jaggies.
Thanks in advance!
Now you have the plane and maybe grass and buildings selected, these you want to
sharpen, not the sky! From the menus click Select>Modify>Expand and expand by 1
pixel. Now apply Unsharp Mask, Filter>Sharpen>Unsharp Mask, (USM), with
these levels, 50%; Radius 0.3; Threshold 0. Apply once and then create a Duplicate
Layer, Layer>Duplicate Layer. Now expand by 1 pixel again and apply the same
USM. Expand again and sharpen. Now you have two layers, one with 1 USM and the
other with 3 USM’s. Three may be too much, but I have rarely used 2 USM. The odd
time I have used 4 USM’s on the Duplicate layer if it’s a bit soft still, try another
USM but be careful of over doing it, a lot of photographers fall down here. Select the
rubber at 100% Opacity and begin to rub out the jaggies, these are always on the edge
of the flaps top of fuselage and under the tail and logos.
