Over at Photoshop Cafe, Colin Smith has produced a new tutorial all about sharpening your images. If you shoot RAW, you will need to process your images to bring out the best quality that your files have to offer. This includes sharpening. While JPEG images often come out of the camera with a good amount of fine detail, one of the advantages of shooting RAW is that you are able to customize how much sharpening is applied to your photos and where it's applied.

With the high pass mask sharpening technique shown below, you can selectively and non-destructively sharpen your images. Considering you'll be sharpening a lot of photos, it's a good idea to create your own sharpening action right inside of Photoshop, which Smith also covers below. You can also download the action here
