    We should have either a new document or an existing document open as well
    .
    In this tutorial, there is an existing photograph already opened in the document in the tab with only one layer. The layer is displayed at the right-hand side.

  7. 7
    The filter is going to be demonstrated again by sharpening on top of the previous sharpening
    .
    We'll see that the image will be made a bit harsher. The filter tends to bring out some of the noise if the quality of the photograph is not good. Sometimes, the filter can do just enough to create a sharper image, if we explain it without going into too much detail.
