ID:	1170334 Hey all, I have a big problem of getting under sharpened photos (soft) images and don’t know why. Here is my work flow. I edit on my iPad Pro on Lightroom and add about 90 sharpening. I save the file in 1280px wide and save it to files on my Apple iPad Pro. I then upload it to jetphotos where it gets rejected for undersharpened soft. I use a modern gear, Canon EOS R7 with a good lens. So I don’t think it’s the gear, and I make sure it’s the sharpest photos I use of course. Can anyone help me figure out what the softness comes from and how I can solve it? I have attached some photos a screener noted as soft.

    Best regards Nick

    Not an expert but I would recommend 1. using pc lightroom and 2. using 100 sharp and maybe some radius

      Thank you for your answer, I’ll try that in the future what is radius can you explain that and how much to use approximately. What will the difference on a pc be?

        As said, not an expert I've just been told to use these for my photos

          Hi, im not a screener, but im almost sure that it doesn't matter how sharp your images come from the camera, for complying to the JP Focus/Sharpness Standard, you will have to increase that sharpness a bit with post-edition. Taking care of not oversharp or over-process it.

            Maybe with a better and bigger monitor than a mobile device will be easier for you to see that the images are soft.

            You can do it on mobile even though, it's a matter of practice the eyes.

            It is important to note that there isn't a recipe that will work on all photos when talking about the amount of sharpness you'll need to apply in post processing, every photo is a different case. The lens sharpness vary with the aperture you use and even with different zoom. Also the focus may not be as accurate every times, so, you have to see and judge the amount of sharpening each photo needs. There will be an average that will work on most photos, but if you are getting lots of rejections by soft, this average should be more than the 90 you are using. As said before, in some cases a higher amount of radius is needed too, sometimes I get better results with more radius and less amount of sharpening.

              Thanks for your advice. How much radius would you recommend to use in what range. I have a hard time seeing any difference in the picture with radius.

                  Image is soft, compressed, and poorly centered.

                    Hello, how can I fix the softness? If I look in Lightroom nothing is blurry looks pretty sharp in there. Sharpening used: 95 radius: 1,3, details 70, noise reduction 24. What could I perhaps change? Maybe more sharpening? Your help and tips are appreciated.

                              Still a touch high (but ok for me) and slightly soft.
