Basic sharpening techniques in Photoshop CS5 create unnecessary noise in midtone sections. This Sharpening procedure creates stunning high definition images on press while reducing unwanted image noise.

• Now the sharpening amount, 4:07, in Unsharp Mask, is how much the adjoining pixels are affected. I like to go real high on this number, anywhere between 150 and 200. For this tutorial, I'm going to select 200 and it's a high number but keep in mind we're only affecting those images in the selection itself.

• You'd want to keep the radius, in Unsharp Mask, anywhere between half a pixel to one to one and a half. If you go any thicker, you'll create a severe halo effect around your images.

• Our threshold, in Unsharp Mask, determines which pixels are sharpened and which are not. A higher threshold value means that there's a huge contrast difference between pixels that are affected

If you're getting Red Edges, 3:56, or getting the opposite areas sharpened, see this VIDEO on what you need to adjust: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8SWiS...
