[Page 3 of 3]
Save the layered
Select File > Save a Copy. Rename the file and click save.
Since this is layered file, the only format that is available is the
native Photoshop format (.psd).
Before applying sharpening to the entire image, select Layer >
Flatten Image. This merges all of the layers into one.
Select View > Actual Pixels to view the image at 100%. Select
Filter > Sharpen > Unsharp Mask. Increase the amount until you
add enough contrast for the image to appear sharp. Drag the Radius
slider to the right to increase the width of the sharpening. Note:
a good rule of thumb for the radius amount isfor every 150 PPI
you use for output, set the radius to one. Drag the threshold slider
to the right to leave low contrast areas alone.
Save a copy
of the file
Select File > Save a Copy and rename the image so as not to
save over the layered file.
