Effectively replacing Photoshop’s Unsharp Mask, version 3 of Sharpener Pro now features U Point technology for selectively sharpening objects, removing the need to create complicated selections and layer masks. Other new features offered by Sharpener Pro 3 include soft-proofing and compatibility with Adobe Photoshop’s Smart Objects.

Sharpener Pro 2 made noise very visible compared to USM. Does the new version solve this problem?

Hi Nikky - Not sure what you're asking here. Obviously I used it as part of the review, but I also use it now over USM in my normal workflow.

Prog - It's much improved over version 2 including noise handling.
