If you wish to change the definition of resolution to merely mean how sharp something appears, then I'd agree with everything you've said here.

Otherwise - no - not the same thing.

Disclaimer: I may change my mind tomorrow morning, I am drinking wine at the moment. Australian Penfolds red wines are really nice.

My experience is that a good red will make things appear much simpler than they might actually be.

PS - I'm having a red too at the moment.

I am not under influence of red at the moment but my eyes still see all A samples in aftab's post not only sharper but resolve more fine details

Yes sharpness and resolution are not the same but related just as noise and detail are related that you cannot separate them.  Nevertheless DXOMark's term sharpness is not the same one you might think about that can be processed in software.

You should drink some too.

Talking about processing, we can make an image look sharper in the post by increasing the actuance without increasing the resolution. Resolution can't be increased in the post, but sharpness can be. But the fact remains that higher resolution will always make an image look sharper than a lower resolution image. In our perception detail = sharpness.

Sure I will pickup a bottle of RED later. I did a quick search in Google and found its price from $11 Penfolds Shiraz/Cab Koonunga Hill to $129 Penfolds Shiraz Rwt (I am sure there are more expensive ones). I am willing to spend more only if they can change my perceptual sharpness/detail that will last forever, or "illusion" disappears after you wake up next morning?
