More sharpening tips

Just found this in dpreview... something I'd like to try out....

I was made aware of one of the members desire to try out my processing technique. Well here it is in greater detail if you wish to try it out.

When you have imported your RAW image in to photoshop or a unsharpened neutral JPEG, you accentuate the image i.e.unsharp mask at 0.3 pixels at 240 to 330 percent. After doing so you unsharp mask at 40 to 60 pixel at 10 to 15 percent. Once you have done that, you go to layers and click on duplicate layer. Here is where you have two very important choices. This will affect the look of the image. One will accentuate and highlight the blacks and the other will accentuate the colors and the shadows. For the later you will de-saturate the layer. Go to the layers menu and you will see an icon labeled "Normal". Click on that icon and you will open a file with several lighting options. Choose soft light. This in my opinion will have too much contrast. You have an opacity and fill bar. I generally reduce the fill and opacity any where from 50 to 80 percent. Once you have done that and if pleased by the result, flatted the image in the Layers Menu and "Voila" a medium format film look in digital. Second option is DO NOT de-saturate the image. Keep it in color and do exactly what was done in the previous method. You will have a highly saturated and profound looking image.
