Layers and creative sharpening - article in magazine.


In the Nov 2011 issue of Digital Photo Pro magazine there is a nice article in which the author uses USM, layers / blend modes and the "Blend If" sliders in the "Layer Style" dialogue. He uses the "Blend If" sliders to prevent the near-white and near-black pixels from clipping.

You could probably find this article on the web. The author is John Paul Caponigro.

It sounds like this technique could be made into a CS5 "Action". You could have a few Actions to cover your most common sharpening settings.

Time permitting, I was planning to try this out over the next few days / week.

Hope this helps,
