    It looks like you are working on a .psd file in Photo RAW which you are then Exporting to a new .psd (the with copy in its name).

    Are you applying any sharpening in the Export? What does your Export panel look like?

    How does the exported copy look in Photo RAW?

    You are so right! When I load the exported PSD it looks the same in RAW2022 as in PS! Here are my export settings. Not sure why this is.

    Oh so it must be that sharpening checkmark! Thanks. I would have never suspected any additional tweaks to the photo within an export function. :)

    There are 3 types of sharpening we can do to our photos. The first is basically to compensate for the fact that the sensor isn't a continuous surface and is broken into pixels. That introduces a loss of sharpness in the capture. This is the sharpening we do in the Develop panel's Noise Reduction pane.

    The second type is for helping to direct the viewer's attention. This is why we have the Sharpening and Dynamic Contrast Effects that we can mask in and out.

    And the third is to sharpen for the output media. When printing on paper or canvas the ink bleeds which reduces sharpness. Some web sites will reprocess your photos which can cause a loss in quality. This is compensated for in the Export panel's sharpening settings.

    Thanks for the explanation Brian! I'm using a synthetic camera (i.e. rendering) so I guess most of that doesn't apply to my images. :)

    I would agree with that. I used to work with Strata and their 3D modeling and animation software.

    Nice. Yeah Strata goes way back. I can't think of any work I've done where OnOne hasn't been a big part of the post process. https://timparsons3dstudio.weebly.com/
