In the five years since we first reviewed nik Sharpener, the world of digital imaging has evolved significantly. And Sharpener's latest release catches up by providing a Raw Presharpening filter and 16-bit mode.
It goes a good bit further, however, by incorporating Sharpener Selective, which lets you apply its sharpening filters to your image by (drum roll) brushing them on with your image editing application's brushes.
There's a lot to this impressive product. As we said nearly five years ago, it doesn't just make it easy to do unsharp masking, it makes it easy to optimize it. And there are few tasks that will improve your images more than sharpening them correctly. Read the review for the whole story.
