Well I will sharpen per a simple formula and do it all the time and stop worrying about it because no matter what you do, somebody will claim it is oversharpened and somebody else will claim its not sharp enough and then you will get 100 sharpening formulas.

The amount of sharpening you apply, like the amount of saturation or contrast, is entirely subjective. That said, the display media has a lot to do with how much is "right". For example, you may find that your prints "require" different sharpening than your web pics, and may also find that what looks right on one monitor does not look right on another.

This is true and should not be.

I can let Qimage do the print output sharpening and SmugMug do the web output sharpening.

I have enough sharpening plug-ins and tutorials and actions and books for anyone, but I will never know when enough is enough so as little as possible is my current method.

In fact the best way out of this is to never post an image.

A well focused image should require zero sharpening. There is no more hateful thing than sharpening an image because once its required, there is no standard and no limit.
