Sharpening Images

As you apply filters and make changes to your digital images, you may start noticing that your images begin to lose their sharpness. In this solution, I'll show you how you can sharpen images that have been softened as a result of digital processing.

Solution Unsharp Mask

Sharpening images is a quick and painless process thanks to the Unsharp Mask filter (there's Photoshop messing with our heads again!). Select Filter > Sharpen > Unsharp Mask. In the dialog box that appears, experiment with the settings until you're happy with the result, as shown in the example at the top of the next page. When you're done, click OK.
