You would be looking for information on creating "sharpening edge masks".

Years ago this was a technique used by many of the top ranked photo editing gurus to protect the smooth areas of a file while sharpening the file's edges.

It has been since superceded by newer tecniques, plugins and programs.

In ACR/LR you can use the masking slider in the sharpening panel to selectively mask what areas of the image are sharpened. This masking appears to work based on edge sharpness/contrast detection and applies to the entire image. Does anyone know if there's a way to perform a selection in CS5 using that same edge detection?
