A great tip from David Lanham (designer for Astronut). If you find that sharpening a layer in Photoshop is too harsh, convert the layer to a Smart Object and apply the sharpening as a Smart Filter, but bump the opacity down. The same idea can be applied to any filter where you’d like a more subtle result.
