Ever thought of using Topaz Adjust to make a High Pass sharpen base?  It is a pretty neat technique that adds a little more umph to your High Pass sharpening without over doing it.  I really like the Topaz Adjust 5 interface and find myself using it more and more in my workflow in some pretty unconventional ways.  Check out the before and afters, if you are interested give the video a gander.  Oh, and if you haven’t purchased Topaz Adjust 5 yet, what the heck are you waiting for?!?

                                         

[warning]One thing I forgot to mention i the post.  If you find the new High Pass Sharpen layer is a little extreme, click on it in the layers palette and reduce it’s Opacity until it meets your liking.[/warning]

For Blake, it is less about the art and more about the process. He dives deep into difficult topics and makes them easy to understand through his outside the box thinking.
