HELP - Loosing sharpness when editing in Photoshop

Postby NNN636932741533216276 » Sun Jun 09, 2019 9:55 pm

New user of Capture One having been a lightroom guy.

Having processed a file in Capture One, I have right clicked and selected "edit with Photoshop", chose PSD / 16bit etc, but when it opens in Photoshop, the image is visibly softer than in Capture One. Below are screen shots taken from 100% from the two applications.

New to this forum, its not showing the full pic above, suggest right click and open in new tab to see the side by side.

Any help or advice would be very welcome

What did you choose under "Adjustments" for "sharpening"?
"Disable all " appears to be the default.

Yeah, sharpening is disabled by default.

FWIW - I actually like working this way. That way when I'm making edits to the photo, I'm not battling any sharpening artifacts. That then gives me the option to either sharpen in PS or just re-apply those sharpening settings of the raw photo onto the PSD back in Capture One.
