Sharpening is the last, most critical step, you take prior to saving your image. Many people sharpen the entire photo and call it good. But did you know you can make more compelling images if you selectively sharpen only the areas you want the viewer to spend the most time on?

In this quick tip I will show you just how quick and powerful selective Sharpening can be!  It utilizes the incredible selection methods in Photoshop to only grab your mid-tones and sharpen them using an Unsharp Mask layer.

It is quick, easy, and most important effective!
