I installed the trial version of this to hopefully replace the DxO NIK sharpener (which is rife with halos), but ran into this problem.
After running it on a black and white image, I found that the tool added a bunch of color information. See the below/attached image. Two rows (2 samples), original on left, sharpened with color on right.
The workflow started with a color image, which I processed with DxO NIK SilverFX Pro, then sharpened.
I’ve always thought of sharpening as a last step / output image after all other processing. Do I need to be doing the sharpening step to the original image before processing (or at least before B&W conversion)?
[ IMAGE: posting to these forums is frustrating. It’s telling me that I can only post images of specific types, but when I do, it tells me that I cannot put images in a post. (it is a reduced size). Is this yet another badge I have yet to earn? ]
