    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    Taking up a side discussion from an Appraisals post, it has been said that Silver Efex Pro is very prone to haloing, especially when converting sharpened pics. I have certainly been plagued with this myself and I can't even find anything that says my PEN F is sharpening.
    But here's a couple of side by sides at 100% on the guy pointing and 16.67% on the building, with the SEP versions on the right and a simple Channel Mixer mono with red filter in PS on the left. The SEP versions are simply not usable.

    surely any raw files is BEFORE in camera processing?

    If there is a PEN F sharpening option it should be on the Olympus software sold with the camera?

    Do you use a preset in SEP? What's the 'structure' slider set to and does changing it help?

    Got it in one I think. Using Neutral (other presets really degrade), but structure has been up too high. It does help to keep it in the middle.

    Yeh, structure is a mix of local edge contrast and some extra sharpening I think.
