I use sharpening 70, radius 1.3, detail 25, and masking 0 as a starting point in Lightroom. I don't recall if this was my modification of the default settings, or if I got it from a web site, but I can say that it works fairly well. That said, I see images that benefit from Smart Sharpening when I go into Photoshop to finish my images and print them.

I would like to eliminate the sharpening step in PS, especially for images that I won't pull into PS. For example, over the next week or so I will process about 2,000 images from a large event that I covered, and I don't intend to pull each image in PS to finish sharpening.

So, my question to our distinguished BB members is this: What detail settings have you had success with in converting RAW D800 files into JPGs? Is your sharpening finished with those settings?

Thanks in advance for your recommendations!
