Sharpening an image

Sharpening an image

Sharpening increases the contrast of pixels around the edges of objects to increase the image’s definition or sharpness.

To sharpen an image:

  1. Open the page containing the image you want to sharpen, select the image, and do either of the following:
    • Click the Sharpen button in the image Property inspector.This is a picture of the feature being described.
    • Select Modify > Image > Sharpen.

    The Sharpen dialog box is displayed.

  2. You can specify the degree of sharpening Dreamweaver applies to the image by dragging the slider control, or entering a value between 0 and 10 in the text box.

    As you adjust the sharpness of the image using the Sharpness dialog box, you can preview the change to the image.

  3. Click OK.
  4. Save your changes by selecting File > Save, or revert to the original image by selecting Edit > Undo Sharpen.

To undo the effects of the sharpen command:

  • Select Edit > Undo Sharpen to revert to the original image.

    You can only undo the effect of the Sharpen command (and revert to the original image file) prior to saving the page containing the image. Once you save the page, the changes made to the image are permanently saved.
