So I keep trying to sharpen my pictures in photoshop elements 7, and maybe elements just doesn't do a good enough job, but I'm thinking that I just don't know what the heck I'm doing, haha. I know my pictures aren't going to look as sharp as LordV's in my crops because he is cropping with 21 megapixels (and he's been doing this MUCH longer than I have) as to where I'm only cropping with 12mp, but there has got to be something I can do.
Basically, every time I try to use the unsharp mask all that happens is my pictures colors get weird, and the whole picture gets weird white highlights on everything. In no way does the picture actually look better or sharper. So does anyone know what I'm doing wrong, or have a link to a tutorial? I'm going to order a couple Elements 7 help books, but for the time being, does anyone have any advice? Thanks for your time.
