first of all I'm still here, just didn't have much time for anything. I'm going on winter holiday in a week so you can expect some snowy photos when I come back (if there's snow).

and my queston is: when shooting RAW do you sharpen photos in RAW converter (RawShooter in my case) or do you use it only for color and exposure correction and leave sharpening for Photoshop? I noticed than leaving sharpness on 0 in RawShooter makes photos a bit soft, I tried to use sime low settings for sharpening and detail extraction, but I wonder if it's better to do in Photoshop?

I've had better luck using USM in CS2 than in ACR - and I found PhotoLab to bejust tooheavy-handed. USM in Photoshop gives a better control/better resultsfor me.

The amount of sharpening needed can vary depending upon the size and media of the final image.

The usual practice is to make unsharp masking the stage in any image processing.
