    That's your problem right there :)

    Many thanks for the video, so helpful. There was a tutorial in the May 2012 Digital Photo, about this and I have just got around to trying it, so yours was just the ticket.

    I have question in this... i just treid to replicate this in elements 11. I could not figure out how to do the de-saturate step. elements does not let you just desaturate a layer as far as I can tell. It only lets you make an adjustment layer.

    does any one know what i can do here? can i just use the adjustment layer then merge the layers?

    just realised you said merge there, once you have done your high pass and your screen is grey still, try the cntrl, shift + U and then in the blend mode above the layers (tis in ps) choose hard light, this will bring the pic back to normal - just sharper

    Ive used this method for years. I often change blending mode to vivid light. After that image look like better. I have never heart for desaturate. I will try it.

    Great tutorial, thanks.

    To get extra control ability, convert what will be your High Pass Sharpening layer to a smart object. That way you can go back and adjust the Filter settings and the blend mode. Adding a layer mask will give the ability to selectively sharpen the layer.
