Re: sharpening technique

Depending on what you are sharpening i guess.
Normally I would use unsharp mask and or highpass filter. Of course I would then use another mask to only put the sharpening on where I want it.

Re: sharpening technique

Low radius split with a brightness/contrast layer clipped to high layer and the contrast bumped to taste with legacy checked. Mask to suit. Rinse and repeat.

Re: sharpening technique

To make the split technique there is another method that doesn't requires the Apply image command to obtain an accurate high layer (high pass filter). After applied the gaussian filter to the low layer, apply a Brighness/Contrast adjustment to the high layer with legacy checked and -50 to the Contrast, then apply a High Pass with a low ratio (1-1,5) and you'll get an acurrate High pass filter.
