hiii i really love your gifs they're so so pretty and good quality !!! so i wonder what are your sharpening settings? sorry if i'm bothering you :/ xx

ello, you’re never bothering me (: Thank you <3

i don’t really have one sharpening setting… I switch it up but one that I recommend (it does make your gif bigger (the mb’s)) is filter -> smart sharpen with these settings:  

I also use actions sometimes but it really always depends on how i feel and how i want my gif to look (: Also use videos that are 720p or above!! 
If you have any other questions just let me know (:
