Leveling Photo Reduces Sharpness

    Yes. Actually quite a bit of sharpness, especially using the keystone function.

    I believe the best workflow is always to start adjusting crop and levelling, then apply all the edits and leaving the detail enhancement /  sharpness at last before exporting. What do you think about.

    Agreed, but the problem is that it is not just sharpening that is reduced, but the overall quality which cannot be restored completely with sharpening, especially in that ON1’s sharpening is not the best.

    I found dynamic contrast filter very powerful, I don't know if it might help for the specific case

    So I finally heard back from support and they say they don't see the blur in the screenshots I sent them.  It's so obvious to my eyes on my main desktop PC and Macbook.  Not sure what to do next.  Not being able to rotate a photo makes this software useless on any photo that needs leveling.  I'll wait to see what happens with the latest update expected soon, but after that might need to ask for a refund.

    Andrea, I understand about dynamic contrast, but it's simply not a solution.  The software shouldn't be blurring a photo when rotating it and adding any kind of sharpening after the fact is like trying to sharpen an out of focus shot.

    I have not used Adobe products for photo editing. You can level a photo in another software package and keep the same exact image sharpness? 

    I find that amazing if it is true. Resizing a photo is very much exactly like rotating a photo. The algorithm used to remap the pixels plays a very important role in the process. And there is going to be some shifting of pixels and perhaps even loss during a rotation because there are angles involved in the rotation and there are some pixels which will not have a home once the leveling is done. The finer the rotation, the more impact on the photo.

    I have not experienced such blurring after a rotation (or at least it is no evident at my sight )...

    Does it happen also in case of few degree rotation ? Could it be due to GPU not updated with the latest drivers?
