Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video High-pass sharpening, part of Photoshop: Sharpening Power (2011).
Sometimes the sharpening you're looking for is more of an enhancement of local …contrast rather than an actual sharpening of edge detail. …In such cases, I often employed a technique that allows me to enhance the …overall appearance of sharpness within the image. …In this lesson, I'll show you how it's done. …Here I have an image of clouds around sunsets, and I'd like to enhance the …overall contrast, but I don't exactly want to enhance contrast per say, but …rather I want to achieve the effect of a sharper image in a lot of ways.…
And that's exactly the type of effect I'll produce with the effect I'm going to …show you. I'll start off by creating a copy of my …background image layer. So I'll click on the thumbnail for my …background image layer, and drag and drop it on the Create New Layer button, the …blank sheet of paper icon, at the bottom of the Layers panel. …This creates a background copy layer that I can work with to produce the final effect. …I'm going to change the blend mode for this layer to the overlay blend mode. …
