I shoot RAW. I adjust color balance, exposure, etc in Lightroom. I always turn LR's sharpening setting to 0....then, from that point, I bring the photo in Photoshop and immediately run my noise reduction plugin (Topaz Denoise). I turn LR sharpening off so it doesn't exaggerate the noise prior to reduction. When noise is reduced with the plugin, I then move to capture sharpening. Since I edit all of my photos initially at the full size, there is the step of "Capture Sharpening." After the key edits are done, I would downsize the photo to web sharing size, do some quick last edits as desired, then output sharpen for web.
My question is:
For capture sharpening, how do I decide the proper settings? (amount, radius, threshold). I am coming at this from the perspective of, I am using capture sharpening for the purpose of correcting the blurring caused by the image capture on the sensor. Later I would do creative sharpening and output sharpening. So, if I am doing the other two sharpening methods later in the workflow, how do I decide on the proper capture sharpening? Should I make it as sharp as I think it should look to look really good at 100%? Or should I hold back a bit so it does NOT look really sharp, but just looks "good"? My thought process is, I don't want to "overdo" the capture sharpening, if it's not necessary or good to do it really crisp.
Thanks for any input
