Question about Fuji FinePix S3 Pro Digital Camera

Sharpening techniques??

I have no experience sharpening these files. Supposed I want to print an 12x18 image of a 12MP file, at native resolution of 235 pixels per inch. What's the best way to sharpen these files? S-CCD images look pretty ugly at 100% on screen, so it's hard to judge by eye what is the best sharpeing technique. So what has been your experience? Which method will produce the best prints? Traditionally, with 20D images, I have just sharpened by eye, making the images look just a bit oversharpened on screen at 100%. But it's hard to judge these Fuji files becuase they already look kind of raggedy at 100%, 12MP. -- Want to see realistic skin tones, excellent sharpness, and the tonality of a 14 bit ADC?

Personally, for pictures with people in, I use the PS CS RAW converter with sharpening set to 20. Thats it. I have used 101 different sharpening techniques in the past, have decided that less is definitely more.

I have been using a bit of edge sharpening lately in combination with smaller & smaller amounts of overall USM. I know Thom Hogan's CD for the S2 had his version as a PS Action and there are others that do the same around. I eventually made my own custom action for it. Can be used most effectively to sharpen an image while leaving noisy areas alone.

I can not get my Lexmark printer to print out an email I rec'dI have the Lexmark printer X2650 please help me. i unpluged it and truned it off and back on again nothing happens.


To be sure that the issue was caused by the enabled Image Sharpening option, do the following:
Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer > Application, and look for entries that start with the Error sign, as in the table below:
Windows XP pattlnk_5142009_1243-err.jpg Windows Vista pattlnk_5142009_1244-err_v.jpg
After opening it, look for entries that report faulting application, such as spoolsv.exe, and the faulting module is lx??ibuf.dll. See image.
If using Windows Vista 64-bit, one might also see this error message (click on the link to view image).
Solution

Windows XP Click Start, then select Printers and Faxes. Right-click the Lexmark printer, and from the drop down menu select Printing Preferences.
Go to Image Enhancement and deselect the Image Sharpening option. See image.
Windows Vista Click Start (Ribbon), then select Control Panel. Click on Hardware and Sound and from the list select Printers. Right-click the Lexmark printer, and from the drop down menu select Printing Preferences.
Go to Image Enhancement and deselect the Image Sharpening option.
See image.

Hello, the printer will not print out forms either from a adobe pdf file or from the internet; it leaves the page blank or just prints out the grids but no text.Please can you help?


Hi. Try turning off the image sharpening in the print settings.
For Windows, open the file and go to File > Print > Preferences/Properties in the Print window> Image Enhancement tab in the Lexmark 4500 Series Printing Preferences > choose None for Image Sharpening. Hit ok. Click Apply to save settings. Hit print to start printing. For Macintosh, open the file > go to File > Print > Print Settings > Advanced Settings > Image Sharpening > adjust setting to None. Try to print. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Looking for sharping stone from efco fl64 /8 chain


There are multiple chain sizes 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 5/32", 7/32" and 3/8" chains so the /8 chain number has me guessing. After the qurestions below, here is my best guess.

Also is this for a chain grinder?" or

Are you looking of a hand held type stone?

Aluminum Oxide Chainsaw Sharpening Grinding Stone
or Ceramic stone?

I will assume that your looking for aluminum oxide stones at this time.

http://www.oregonchain.com/homeowner/products/accessories/replacement_stones.htm

This is wide selection of sharpening stones.

You can also use hand held chain sharpening files of the same size that have shapening angles marked on the file set fixture.

Hopefully you have a sharpening guide that will keep your angles correct while shapening.

A safety note: Improperly sharpened chainsaw blades can be very dangerous to the user.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Pictures taken are not sharp


If you are upgrading from a previous "point and shoot" digital camera, the pictures from your digital SLR may seem "soft" by comparison. This is simply a difference in the built-in processing performed by the camera. Most DSLRs output images with less sharpening applied. I believe the philosophy is that the sharpening algorithm causes data loss, so less of it is used on the high-end cameras with the assumption that you can apply more later on your PC.
You can try shooting a picture using the RAW capture mode, then editing it using a program on your PC. By applying sharpening to the RAW image, you will most likely be able to produce a very sharp image.
You can also take a JPEG image with the camera and apply additional sharpening on the PC, but this process is more lossy with regards to the original data.

Fixing small objects


If you mean to enlarge a small low resolution image and make it a large image with good clarity and resolution, basically you can't really do this...

Well you can up to a point, say doubling the pixel size at maximum, but if you don't have the image size and qualitry to begin with, enlarging will rarely produce a clean image if you are enlarging it by a large factor.

Of course you can enlarge some images really well by say 25% by enlarging then using some sharpening filters like "Unsharp Mask" etc. You can get reasonable results this way, but if you are trying to say enlarge a 100 pixel wide image to 1000 pixels wide, it just won't work terribly well no matter how much sharpening or filtering you do!

Hope that helps!

Sharping Ice Climbing Tools


Step1 Use a 10-inch Mill Bastard file, although you can get by with a shorter version. Put your ice climbing tools in a vise while sharpening to make the process easier. Step2 Stroke the file away from you. If you draw the file back toward you, it becomes dulled and less useful. Make your sharpening strokes smooth and even. Step3 Work on honing the flat surfaces into sharp points. Follow the existing points, and do not try to change their direction. Step4 Sharpen from the front of the tool to the back. This helps to maintain the points. Step5 Buy replacement points for your crampons. Filing eventually will wear down your ice climbing gear. Replacing the points will ensure you'll be able to dig into the ice and rock surfaces.

*ist RAW converter problem


Ignoring the JPEG artifacts, which isn't about the extra grain in both the TIFF and JPEG images produced by the convertor, is it possible that different sharpness settings were used for the output images that for the on screen review? High values of sharpening without using an appropriate noise threshold value will have the effect of increasing noise/grain.
