    This is another good idea that I haven’t seen anywhere else. One approach I had been using was to apply a high pass sharpening layer, typically with an Overlay blending mode then sharpen the high pass layer. It seems to add an extra kick to some of the fine detail.
    You have some great sharpening articles. Thanks for making them available.
