This pic is out of the camera. f 2.8 1/100 shot at17mm and the best I could zoom was 2X. This is what i took to photofiltre to play with. And the I asked in what order make sense to process it.
I don't know exactly what you mean. But for this picture I would only use levels and partial sharpening in photoshop.

I generally follow this rule of thumb from the nik multimedia site:

Sharpening an image is the last step in the process of preparing an image for print. In general, the correct workflow process is: 1) Open the original image 2) Perform any image corrections or enhancements 3) Scale or resize the image 4) Sharpen the image for the final output/print size using nik Sharpener! or nik Sharpener Pro!

1. Open (obviously)
2. Corrections/Enhancements (including noise reduction)
3. Scale/Resize
4. Sharpen
Be sure to save in an uncompressed format before performing a lot of PP.

Nick... This just made me realize something about a question you posted in another thread.

You asked about the number of saves for jpeg before the image became noticably degraded.

I am wondering now... If it's not the number of times the image is saved... And more... The number of times the image is resampled.

That seems to make more sence to me...

What do you thing?

Done with PhotoFiltre. Not PS or PP9 but decent for being free.

No I did not edit it out.

I first cropped out the area that did not need to be viewed.

Cloned the background and filled in the white area.

Used gamma correct <all>

One bumpup on Saturation

One bump up on Contrast

Then played around with framing and a drop shadow background for a pleasing displayable effect. This is my personal tastes and there is no real flow--> process to speak of...

I just found this a while back and just goofed around with it alot until I got the look I think is good...

I am learning PS because the sharpness I am after can't be done with PhotoFiltre..

Tims tutorial is by far the best and I did try some of the Actions posted here.

I think Tim's process in much better.

so there's not a plugin for sharpening. I think it's great for free. It's better than anything else I've come across. Thanks for the tips, I'm going in to see what i can do.

Nik Sharpener is a PS plug-in.
