I am about to read the above. The method I generally use is a split and then a brightness/contrast adjustment layer clipped to the high layer and with a boost in contrast set to legacy.

Re: your best sharpen skill for a print or for web

ANY sharpening technique aimed at output other than the internet or display, using the display itself to judge sharpness is fraught with issue! The display is a very low resolution output device. It is NOT WYSIWYG in terms of applying sharpening on-screen versus on print. What may look pretty butt ugly at 100% in Photoshop can make a lovely print. A file that looks great on screen may not produce ideal output sharpening (notice again the reference on sharpening based on capture, creativity or output). One size fits all simply doesn't work ideally by a long shot!

I use a simple high pass to sharpen (apply image>high pass>soft light)...I've used programs for sharpening and many other techniques but I always go back to high pass because it is completely customizable and editable.
