    Default Sharpering a slight Blur photo....

    Hi.... a Newbie question about Photoshop.

    I'm using Photoshop Elements 2 for my photo editing. Could anyone advise me on using it to 'sharpen' a slight blur photo ? I'm totally loss at Photoshop-ing..... So if you can, please list down the steps. Thxs.

    Sharpening is not used for making good blur photos.

    The best thing to do is to reduce the image size - this will improve the sharpness but of course will limit your print sizes.

    I once read from a book by Scott Kelby, he mentioned to resize the image down to 72dpi with bicubic resampling checked (use bicubic sharper if available). After that, resize it again to you desired print size, say 16" in width with resampling turned "off". Now select "unsharp mask" from the "filter, sharpen" menu. Set amount to 50%, pixel width to 1 and select ok. You can apply unsharp mask again if desired. Hope this helps.
