Magic Sharpener is a piece of software designed as a Photoshop-compatible plug-in that allows users to easily modify the sharpness of their photos.
The tool comes with a simple, intuitive interface that provides users with fast access to all of its functions, courtesy of a right-side panel.
From there, users can adjust various photo attributes, including the Edge sharpness and Line contrast, as well as Radius. Moreover, they can change the Noise levels of their images.
The tool comes with support for presets and allows users to easily save their own so as to apply them to a series of images in order to apply the same set of changes to all of them.
Easily tweak JPEG images
The tool can be used to modify JPEG images effortlessly, as it can automatically remove any artefacts from them.
The plug-in can be used to modify only specific parts of an image, courtesy of an integrated Brush tool. Users are provided with the possibility to change the size of the brush, as well as its hardness and opacity.
All modifications are previewed in real time in the tool's main window, so which allows users to easily revert to the initial settings or to apply additional changes to their photos.
No support for newer Photoshop versions
The plug-in might not be used with the latest versions of Photoshop, which could pose some issues to users who do not have older iterations of the application installed.
We tried using it with the newest flavor of the software, but it did not work. However, we did manage to get it up and running with a Photoshop-compatible tool.
A snappy tool
During our testing, the plug-in proved quite fast, being able to apply changes and preview them almost instantly. We also noticed that it eats a small amount of computer resources.
All in all, Magic Sharpener is a simple, intuitive Photoshop-compatible plug-in that allows users to tweak their photos effortlessly, while also previewing all changes directly in its main window. It might be compatible only with older versions of Photoshop, but it can still offer fast performance.
