Over on the Pro Imaging forum, Chris Terry asks if it is possible to integrate using the Pixel Genius Photokit Capture Sharpener with Lightroom, or does he have to Develop, Export as a PSD or TIFF, apply PhotoKit Sharpener and then re-import the image back into Lightroom again? Or is there an easier method?
Well, in Lightroom version 1.0 you can ‘almost’ completely automate this process, but there are a number of gotchas that might limit the ease with which you can do this, as things stand in Lightroom 1.0 right now. But here is a brief outline of how you could go about automating the process for single images only. The following steps will assume that you already have PhotoKit Sharpener installed in your current version of Photoshop. Although what you will learn from this tutorial can equally be applied to running other types of Photoshop action routines in conjunction with Lightroom exports.
