Re: What is your favourite trick?

I have 2 that I use all the time, both of which I picked up from someone else:

USM for contrast 25-30, 50-60, 0 Can be used in combo with "S" curves.

To tone down or eliminate USM side effects:
Double click seperate USM layer to bring up layer properties
Set mode to luminosity

Hold down alt(Windows) and drag/split white highlight triangle under "this layer" for the blend if sliders.

Set the left side to between 120-180 and the right side to 200-240 to eliminate or reduce highlight side effects from heavy sharpening of high contrast edges.

The other hints are great!
