    This is simply a more "advanced" form of sharpening as compared to USM.
    It's by using the high pass filter.

    1) control + J to duplicate layer
    2) Apply high pass filter
    3) change blending mode.

    Done.

    I'm just curious if this is the type of effect you wanted to achieve.

    Edit:
    heh now I've got more time at hand.. let me explain abit more about #3.. you can choose soft light, hard light, or overlay for different emphasis. play with it and have a look.

    Hmm, so far non have gotten it near Dragan's style yet. In the first place, most of the pictures are too contrasty. You need a pic that's has better dynamic range. Then don't overdo it. most of the attempts here are overdone. Either too saturated or burned/dodge. I read an article about his methods. the secret is "toning" the "channels". ok enough hints. Happy experimenting.

    Hmmmm I believe the thread starter never specifically asked for Dragan's style, it was an OT post that started talking about Dragan.
