Quick output sharpening for Photoshop

Here’s a quick sharpening technique when printing from Photoshop, try this and adjust to taste:

  • Merge visible to new layer:   Select top layer in stack and hit [Ctrl + Alt + Shift + E] (PC) or [Cmd + Opt + Shift + E] (mac)
  • Select new layer and overlay mode
  • Filter > Other > High Pass
  • Radius 1.8 pixels

You can find this technique in the Photoshop action set below.
