By applying the Unsharp Mask filter to the image, you can create the illusion of a more focused image.
1 Choose Filter > Sharpen > Unsharp Mask. Make sure that the Preview option is selected so that you can view the effect before you apply it. To get a better view, you can place the pointer within the preview window and drag to see different parts of the image (we focused on the woman's face). You can also change the magnification of the preview image with the plus and minus buttons located below the window.
2 Drag the Amount slider until the image is as sharp as you want (we used 57%), and make sure that the Radius is set to 1 pixel.
3 Click OK to apply the Unsharp Mask filter to the image.
