Hi JP.There is no best value, it is pretty complex. This is where DXO seems to shine, it computes sharpening and lighting values that look pretty good on 90% of the images. The others might need manual adjustment.
Thanks for that, I wonder if someone knows the answer to 6mb JPEG from camera and 20mb from raw.
SWMBO thinks the camera JPEGs are ok for what I do so doesn't really want to sanction expenditure on software so if I can get what I need from DPP so much the better!
Anybody have advice on the best sharpen and unsharp values to use DXO or DPP or is that the old how long is a piece of string question! Is the answer completely subjective, or dependant on too many variables to have most likely to work values? Do you use both on the same image or should only sharpen or unsharp be used on any one image?
With a FF body, you must have DXO Pro Elite, which is $200 (On sale for $150 right now). DPP should do everything you want, the lens correction feature blows up the size of the raw file by a large amount, I don't know what happens to a jpeg processed from it.
The main issue with DPP is the lack of resources explaining how to use it and get the most from it. Its almost trial and error.
