Cropping and Sharpening

So the general rule of thumb is to always sharpen last as part of your workflow.

But I have read that it is ok to crop AFTER sharpening as long as you do not re-sample.

Can the previous statement be verified or negated? I have only been able to test with smaller sizes -- 5x7 and 8x10. I've been staring at them so long that I can't even tell the difference anymore....

Any thoughts?

Re: Cropping and Sharpening

Simply cropping an image (or trimming the print with a scissor for that matter) does not change the pixels in the image and will not interfere your sharpening.

(Note that resampling is a different matter).
