Sharpening software/plugins for PS7

Hi all,
Wondering what folks are using with PS7....(too bad Mitch's Sharpening Tools are for CS/CS2....)
Anyone using Ultra-Sharpen 7.0 Pro (though only 8bit support for PS7)...notice price has just dropped, though have no idea what it was before.
Ideas, advice?
I'm just am amateur, but love taking pics and getting the most out of them.

i use several. you might try our own Stroker's site. his 'lum frequencies' can be used for sharpening.

i also use 'sharpen' and '7 band sharpen' from AIM. these are both quite good.

and, paint shop pro's sharpening is pretty good, and though their usm kinda sucks, their 'digital camera noise removal' tool has a built in sharpen feature that when combined with the digi noise removal, can do some pretty nice things, easily rivaling Neat Image and others.

there are also ways to sharpen with contrast. and there are lots of programs out there with contrasting tools, some good, some not so good.

you can also sharpen with equalization and histogram adjustments to a certain extent.

and, for those really densely blurred images, you can sharpen or de-blur with programs like 'Unshake' or 'Focus Magic'.

also look for programs or plugins that advertise 'deconvolution'. these will often give you a better rendering.

and that's just some of what can be done and what's out there

Well, I personaly used a lot my own plugin from
(actually, using it for a couple of large catalog-like projects was a part of beta-testing) but for anyone beside me (and several testers) it would cost some money so you decide...
