Nothing can sharpen as Multi Scale Sharpening.
When you use the Multi Scale approach you have all the data of the image at the end of your fingers.

You can read about it here: (Italian).

Really great reading.

There are many tools out there to sharpen in this approach.
I'm pretty sure you'll find them easily.

Welcome to RetouchPRO
Hope you enjoy or enjoyed your stay here.

RetouchPRO is a place for help, with abundant offerings of knowledge, opinions, or just interesting thoughts, We are a remarkably troll-free and welcoming group. Sorry for your disdain.

Each post helps thousands of future users, not just you.

Just one thing to help the forum... If you use Photoshop you can post fairly large pictures which are under 100k using the 'save for web' function in Photoshop as described in this thread:
(Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images..)
The save for web function in the latest Photoshop is hidden under File>Export>Save for web (legacy)

This thread explains (How to attach Files/Images to your Posts or Threads )

If you want to post a larger resolution that is over 100K then you can host your image elsewhere and attach a link in the thread,, as you did here,... but also, always please attach an under 100K version (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links (the link you provided here has expired or been removed). Please link to the highest resolution.. or the largest size you can

Just curious and would like to see what everyone is talking about !

Post pictures people!!
