The black art of digital image sharpening
A good info site. For a long time I've heard of Unsharp Mask (USM) and thought, "I want to sharpen not unsharpen so I never took time to read about it, well this hummer works and most image editors will do it. Try two passes of 20/20/0, followed by two more passes to actually sharpen details, one at 0.6/100/0 and another at 0.4/200/0 on an image that doesn't seem real sharp where the above parameters mean [Radius/Amount/Threshold]. It appears these #'s vary just like recipes for hot Texas Chili so share what works for you. http://www.zenadsl5251.zen.co.uk/photos/sharpening.html
